If you like adventure you'll love the ROAM crew! Mick, Liss, Andy, and Holly are sailing the World on a home built 48 foot Catamaran!
They're "in search of Great Sailing, Epic Waves, and New Friends in a Journey of a lifetime." AWESOME!
Watch their latest video to meet the crew and get a glimpse into their dream world:
We crossed paths recently and gotta say wow these guys are like kindred spirits - all about the travel, adventure, and eco vibes. Their boat is wind powered, and 100% of the onboard electricity is solar powered.
"Long term, Sustainable, Low Impact travel is the focus of ROAM."
I can't imagine the feeling of building your own boat and sailing the open sea exploring islands, sounds truly amazing...
And here's the story of the boat build: sailsurfroam.com/thevessel
We're looking forward to following the adventure!
Let’s start things off with a small bit of advice. Start using your travel journal before your trip.
Seriously, you’ll realise how important it is, when you are looking back at your adventures, to record even the slightest bit of planning to ensure that your trips have meaning and purpose.
Before all the memories and ticket stubs begin to flood the pages of your journal, make a list of things you want to see, food you want to try, or dedicate a page to language phrases you can use on the daily.
Fresh out of university after four years studying ecology, zoology and conservation genetics, I was well and truly ready for an adventure.
I wanted to book a plane ticket, pack my bags and head out the door as soon as possible.
But two things were stopping me. Firstly, money. Spending four years studying doesn’t mean you’re exactly raking in the cash. Secondly, when I got back and started looking for jobs, what would an employer think of a recent lengthy, self-indulgent holiday?
Then a solution came to me:
Why not combine some adventurous traveling with work experience?
In THE POWER OF MYTH by Joseph Campbell with Bill Moyers (1988), Campbell states that “Chief Seattle was one of the last spokesmen of the Paleolithic moral order. In about 1852, the United States Government inquired about buying the tribal lands for the arriving people of the United States.”
“The President in Washington sends word he wishes to buy our land. But how can you buy or sell the sky? The land? The idea is strange to us. If we do not own the freshness of the air and the sparkle of the water, how can you buy them?”
