Common responses when I tell people what we’re doing   Leave a comment

“Watch out for pirates!”

“Aren’t you afraid of, like, storms?”

“How long will you be gone?”

“Do you know how to sail?”

“I didn’t know people really did that kind of thing.”

The list goes on. Most reactions are positive. Some are amusing. I figured out pretty early on that I really enjoy seeing people’s reactions to what Lee and I are doing. It reminds me how exhilarating it is to be quitting my job, buying a boat, and sailing south without much of a plan or agenda. When the logistics of buying the boat and the prospect of sailing it through all kinds of weather gets a little intimidating, I look at the alternative: life going on as normal. Friends and family get excited about our adventure and I feed off of their excitement.
