Sustainable Travel Map & Timeline

Where are they now?

Congratulations to the team! They made it. Having traveled 2860 km and planting 286 trees in the process! Take a look at the timeline below to see the adventures of Finn & Tereza as they traveled sustainably to the Black Sea and Russia.

    Boat is complete

    After months of work at Brockwood Park School, Finn & Tereza have completed the boat. Finn heads to collect their sponsorship from Circular Computing before starting the journey. 

  • Jul 18, 2019

    On the road

    Having now obtained their sponsorship, the journey begins as they travel to Germany to the start of the river Danube that will take them their full distance.

    On the water

    A wonderful start to the trip as the clinker sail boat successfully launches into the beautiful German river near RAUNHEIM.

  • Jul 24, 2019

    The rowing begins!

    After spending a few days at the beautiful Hochheim, with a lack of wind behind the sails they began rowing for the first time! The rowing had taken them up the main river to Main and they have reached Hochst. A scorching summer at 38 degrees and it is only getting hotter!

  • Jul 28, 2019

    20K in a day (that's 2 trees planted!)

    Some real progress made from Hochst to Fechenheim through the big city of Frankfurt. The team said it was a loooong but sunny day. As promised that is another 2 trees planted for the cause as we plant 1 tree for every 10km traveled sustainably. 

  • Jul 31, 2019

    Then came the Thunder!

    As the team approached the stunning Aschaffenburg they were hit by a huge storm with thunder and lightning shooting across the dark sky. They took cover for the night and came back to find Jill (the name of the wonderful clinker sail boat) waterlogged! 

  • Aug 3, 2019

    A rest outside Wurzburg

    The team are progressing fantastically well through Germany and had stopped for a well deserved rest outside Wurzburg. 

  • Aug 6, 2019

    Creating cover

    As Finn and Tereza carry on across the river Main towards Bamburg, they encounter yet another storm! Becoming experts at bracing the weather, they innovatively pull together a makeshift cover from their tent sheet. 

  • Aug 9, 2019

    Light at the end of the tunnel

    With Bamburg almost in sight, the storm has lifted on our travellers and the sun guides the way down the river.

  • Aug 16, 2019

    Guiding through the lock

    The team come across another lock and guide the boat up to the next level as they make their way through Erlanden, Germany. 

  • Aug 16, 2019

    Sailing at last!

    The team haven't had it so easy since the beginning as they have had to row the majority of over 200km through Germany. So delight was felt throughout as they caught a break going down stream. 

  • Aug 19, 2019

    Approaching the Danube

    The team are feeling a sense of pride as they approach a milestone in the sustainable journey as they start to approach the Danube river, which will take them through 10 different countries and ultimately onto the Black sea!

    Linz, Austria

    The team are 100 km into Austria. The color of the water has changed to a grayish silver from the confluence of 3 rivers on the Passau border between Germany and Austria.

  • Aug 28, 2019

    A Slow Journey

    As they make their way down the river the team have time to reflect and wanted to raise further awareness around the idea of economic degrowth. 

    Degrowth is a political, economic, and social movement based on ecological economics, anti-consumerist and anti-capitalist ideas. It is also considered an essential economic strategy responding to the limits-to-growth dilemma.

    Tekija, between Serbia & Romania

    With the seasons changing, it is getting dark a lot earlier now and the team hadn't found a place for the night. Having to react, they head for the nearest lights they could see on the shore. As they came close it became apparent it was a little family Danube fishing business, and they invited the team to put up their tent. In the morning they shared 3 beautiful fish and some coffee. Wonderful to meet such kind people.

  • Oct 10, 2019
