I'd love to hear from you.
My name is Rainer Dawn. I'm 15, traveling through Indonesia on my uncle's catamaran. I used to lead a pretty average life in California. I was a freshman in high school when I received the offer from my aunt and uncle to join them sailing in Indonesia, and although this meant leaving my family and friends behind it was an offer I couldn't refuse. I have now been abroad since February 2017 and I've loved every day of it.
Indonesia is rich with picturesque tropical islands and that's fine if you're into that, but for me the real beauty starts below the surface: in the coral reefs teaming with life, in the vibrant schools of tropical fish, in the forests of sea fans swaying in the current, and most of all in the beauty of a thriving ocean.
The purpose of this website is to capture that beauty and share it with the world.
