In 2020 the couple, Sophie and Casper, kicked off their circumnavigation when they sailed from Copenhagen, Denmark, to explore the world on their sailing boat, Hvalodea. They have found a simple life at sea, and they enjoy the way as much as they enjoy the destinations. Traveling by water and using the power of the wind to propel the boat means that they are generating far fewer fossil fuels than otherwise. Moreover, they only use reef-friendly sunscreen and do not use any harsh chemicals on board. Also, they do beach and reef clean-ups and mostly buy local produce to support the local communities and avoid long polluting transportations.
