Hello to you all

Hello all from Europe,

I'm Nick, 40yo and I'm working towards to realize my dreams to become liveaboard and eventually cruiser. I'm totally new at sailing and I don't have a sailboat yet but I have big dreams about small boat :-)
Right now I'm trying to sell everything that I own, to find a new job abroad and finally go ahead with my plans.

I'm planning this with my best friend for years now but unfortunately I lost him couple of years ago...not just him but I lost almost everything in my life.

So, I'm doing this crazy thing almost from the beginning in life and I'm doing it for myself but also in his honor.

Beautiful sentiments, and I'm sorry for your loss. When I look back on the times in my life when I lost everything, I realize now they were times of new beginnings, and personal power. So I hope this is for you. Fair winds, and following seas.

Re: Hello to you all

Sorry for your loss. But when you lose you gain something else. I'm new to sailing and working towards actually doing it. Chat anytime.

Re: Hello to you all

Go for it !

The difference between adversity and adventure is attitude.
