The truthful answer to all of these is, I don’t know, not for certain.
I guess this is normal, something that many other people have faced and dealt with in their own personal decision and battles. The decision to follow what I started dreaming of so many years ago was not as easy as one may think. Buying a yacht and sailing around, what’s there to think of really? There was however a bit more to it than that, for me anyway.
What I’m trying to get across and would like to show and share with this trip is something I am realizing myself. You are never fully ready. There will be things, big and little, that will not be perfectly timed, or have gone exactly to plan. If you wait till these are all in place, you will do exactly that, wait. Sometimes you have to take that step, or leap rather, into the unknown. To have the faith and trust that if you give it your all, it will work out. Maybe not exactly as to the pictures and scenes you have envisioned in you head, quite often not, but you will learn and grow along the way, and your plans along with you.
I would like this trip to inspire those I know and meet to follow the dreams that have long lay dormant, pushed aside or regarded as a childish flight of fancy. To maybe in some way ignite that little spark that can, with a little bit of creativity, become a significant event in someone’s life. That’s a big wish for the trip, I know, but just maybe, it can.
