If I ever get around to publishing the cruising book that has, multiple times, been suggested that I write, it will be a book of mistakes. A compilation of all the cruising mistakes I have made, and more importantly, how to avoid them. Rebecca knows more than anyone that we, and even more so I, have made a lot of them. It may require several volumes to cover the subject material!

Perhaps, included in those mistakes will be our decision to sell everything that we owned and travel, living off our savings. If we end up destitute, I guess people will chalk that up as one more mistake, point fingers, and say “I told you so.” I doubt it’ll come to that though. In my opinion, the notion of security is overrated, and as this article suggests, it seems that more and more people are starting to feel that way too.

So, inspired by the quote on the meme above, the other day I created a fun post on Facebook asking the question, “If you could travel to any ONE place in the world, where would you go, and why?” Many people had trouble answering the question, and it’s not hard to understand why: there are so many potentially cool places to visit!

How would you answer that question? We’re writing our own list now!


  1. Even if you do go broke, I don’t you guys having any regrets. Amazing experiences and memories. Besides, it’s only money. What else are we supposed to do with it?

  2. That’s a great idea for a book. Good angle.

  3. Our parents experienced the Great Depression. Right or wrong, it affected them.

    Personally, I’m enjoying being unemployed. Makes you think. Hard. But there is also adventure and freedom, and the price is fair.
