It’s not every day you get to cruise a world-famous, Nobel Prize-nominated, teen activist throughout the seas on your yacht.

That’s exactly what Australian couple Elayna Carausu and Riley Whitelum did with their team in December, sailing 3200 nautical miles across the Atlantic Ocean to Lisbon, Portugal with Greta Thunberg and her dad.

And now, there’s a video of the journey.

Carausu and Whitelum have actually been cruising on their vessel, La Vagabonde, and YouTubing their experiences on the seas for 5 years, but this was a particularly prominent task.

When first welcomed to speak at the U.N. Climate Action Top in New York City in September, Thunberg notoriously dumped airplanes and rather sailed for two weeks throughout the Atlantic Ocean in a zero-emissions sailboat, the Malizia II, to demonstrably decrease her carbon footprint.

Then, invited to speak at POLICE25, Thunberg put out the call on Twitter for a lift back throughout the Atlantic when the location moved from Chile’s capital Santiago to Madrid due to civil discontent— and Whitelum and Carausu responded to the call with La Vagabonde.

More videos will be released on the set’s YouTube page “during the following weeks” according to a tweet by Thunberg The very first video details how the journey came together, lets you poke around the sleeping quarters and innards of the boat, participate in preparations and security rundowns, and find out how they even linked with Thunberg in the first place.
