Isbjorn made the front page of the local ‘Nya Åland’ newspaper in Mariehamn! The headline translates roughly to ‘7,000 Miles Sailed for Algot’s Baptism.’ Basically, Mia’s best friend is from Åland, and we’re now godparents to her first son, Algot.

When the crew wanted to visit Åland, and since we had some time, we ended the last passage here and they took the ferry home.
