I stumbled on this blog post from Wandering Dolphin this morning. I’ve been following theses guys for a few months now, as I’m curious about how a family decides to get out of the traditional way of living and actually live on a boat. It’s what I’m aiming for, but stepping outside the box sometimes feels so hard and complicated. I think it’s something we tend to overanalyze and overcomplicate because it is so out of the ordinary.
If you’ve been following me on Pinterest, you’ll see I have a board called “One day, I’ll sail away”.
I would like my children to grow up in a different way. There’s nothing wrong about growing in the suburbs and attending regular school (I know, because I was raised that way). But just as traveling broadens your horizons, I think traveling as a child opens your mind even more. This plan to sail away is just a plan right now, but we are setting it in motion slowly so that in a few years time, when our children are a little older, we are able to make the move.
As you can see from the post, growing up on a boat looks quite appealing when you set aside society’s critical mind.
A great read.
