Rafik Draoui

Hello! I’m Rafik.

I am a programmer, sailor, and wanderer who is currently traveling around the world.

I’m interested in slow travel, languages (both human and computer ones), sailing, psychogeography, and storytelling, amongst many other things.

What keeps me busy?

Previously (September to December 2017):
Learning traditional seamanship, sailmaking, wooden boat building, and more in Lunenburg (Nova Scotia), while enjoying the unique maritime culture of the East Coast.
Currently (January to April 2018):
Deckhand aboard three-masted square-rigged ship Picton Castle, sailing from Nova Scotia to New Orleans through Bermuda, The Bahamas and the Gulf of Mexico.
Next (May 2018 onwards):
