So….we sold our lovely two floors house and the land, we sold our car and mountain bikes...and bought a boat... WRONG!!! Unfortunately.....this is not our case. Like most of young people who don’t have anything but a dream and want to reach it- we also had toWORK! Of course first it came the idea, than big headache, how to make it and it and than the work. We knew we need money for buying a boat so after finishing Circumnavigation we decided to start looking for jobs on boats. We both didn’t want to come back to office jobs weused to work before, so we decided we want to continue sailing and earn money doing that.. We worked on different sailing boats , learned a lot, saw a lot and most important confirmed that we really want keep sailing!
PART II. HOW WE ARE PLANNING TO MANAGE OUR DREAM TO CONTINUE?
Enjoying relatively simple life at sea!!!
,Yes its easy to say, but when all comes to reality, things change. And then appear questions. .How? This is the question, which mostly everyone is asking us . Funny ,but when you live life less 'normal' people think its very OKAY to speak about the money. And when living on land, it is considered "rude" to ask how you will earn money to live, how much you need per month and how how howwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww?????... Good questions.. Agree. And our answer to that is? secret is not in earning, but In not spending so much! This we learnt with time. Life spent on boat teacha lot about that. You can do so many things yourselve!!...Probably much more than you could imagine . And what about money, yes, of course, we need some. So we continue working seasonal jobs on boats. That means that on special months (depends where we are) we try to get jobs on other boats and sail the rest of the year on our. That means we have to be ready for unstable life and unstable account . And we try:) This is a price we pay for being able to have this adventurous life we chose.
