Come Sail Away

My son's half brother and his wife came for dinner Sunday. I love them. They are the best people. They live on a sailboat. She is a nurse and takes travel assignments where ever they want to go. He picks up work at the boat yards. They sail there and live on the boat, saving up money until her assignment ends, then they just sail away to where they want to be. Then repeat the process.

They are now planning a working trip to San Diego and will take the boat through the Panama Canal. After her assignment is done, they are planning to sail to the south Pacific islands.

Doesn't that just sound like such a fabulous life?

I just admire the heck out of them for having the courage to live their lives the way they want to, not the way others say they should.

Maybe some day I will work up the courage to sell it all, quit my job and take off to Prague or Sofia or Budapest. Or Ireland. I'd like to take a travel nurse position in Ireland or Scotland.

I just need to figure out how to get the boys there.

Thor sez: I ain't eating no haggis!

I'm with you, Thor. If someone puts haggis in front of me when we're in Edinburgh, I'm going to barf!

Pam - no they don't. I told them they need to - she sends multiple emails out to friends and relatives keeping them updated. I told her that blogging would be simpler.

Pat - I'm sure Thor would love to smell haggis, but that's about it. Have fun on your trip! I'm still green!

Haggis ROCKS. I ate it every single day of the two weeks I was in Scotland. Had it in patties for breakfast, and alongside 'neeps and tatties for lunch or dinner.

LOVE HAGGIS! Best with a dram of single malt scotch - but what isn't?
