Although Monique had never step into the outside world, she is a real adventurer. You can find her curious and energetic, not even intimidated by extreme cold. And, she don’t have any difficult problems of sea sickness, which is all designed for sailing.


Basically, Monique can handle everything like a human. In reality, she’s even better if you count the eggs and those flying fish she caught.


“They are currently in the west coast of Greenland until the middle of July,” Virgine Nolen-Laissy, who manages onshore affairs for the duo, told The Dodo. “When the ice will melt they will cross the Arctic Ocean to join the Pacific by the famous North West Passage.”
