Lives at Sea : Fram

My grandfather was a fisherman and I remember those stories he has told to us since we were kids. Facing the waves at large, longing the coasts of Iceland…
I’m pretty sure he has had a large influence on some of the passions I have today. Someone would just have to hear some of the things we would want to do, or to see us listen to him talking about his memories, to notice our gaze almost as emotional than his.

His life makes me shiver of wonder and fright, it makes me think about those lives that where made or undone by the seas.

This is a truly legendary ship. Fram (Forward) was the ship used by the explorers Fridtjof Nansen and Roald Amundsen. The latter became the first man to reach the South pole thanks to this ship.

A viking ship

When speaking about ships and explorers, vikins are the firsts to pop in my mind. They are one of my passion but they were also creators of an amazing technological wonder : their ships. they were ahead of their times..

With those they went as far as America 4 centuries before a certain impostor 😉

There are different ships with different names depending on the use but none of them are called DRAKKAR as we say in France. This is a stupid name and this is wrong!

A galleon riding a raging sea

I can’t help but be amazed by the wonders of courage and ingenuity it took for the first explorers to go were the believed no one had ever been (Even though they were wrong more often than not and despite the horrors they made possible). On that point the galleons mark an upheaval since they were the first ship to be built especially to resist the difficult conditions of the ocean and to be both used for freight and war.

The Vasa was a Swedish ship supposed to represent the military power of the country, but during her maiden voyage in 1628 she sank after only 1.300 meters. Today it can be seen at the Vasa museum in Stockholm.
