From Ireland On-Line :
Icelandic pop star Bjork is training to fulfil her ambition of sailing around the world.
The singer is currently taking a 10-week course to captain a 30 ton boat, and when completed she will embark on an epic journey with her boyfriend Matthew Barney and their three-year-old daughter Isadora.
She says: “It has always been my ambition. I have homes all over the place at the moment – Iceland, England and France – but I’d love for my home to be a boat so that I can take it wherever I go.
“The course I’m taking tests whether I have the balls to do this. So I’m having to work hard and behave myself. My life’s always changing – I’m constantly looking for new things. I’m never still. My theory is that life on a boat could be great.”
