by: http://www.scmp.com/magazines/post-magazine/travel/article/2040320/sailing-away-it-all-baltics-archipelago-sea

I stand on the gently rocking bow and measure the distance with my eye, then jump onto a granite boulder covered in orange lichen and scramble up the rocks, using scrawny fir trees to pull myself into the forest.
