I'm a Canadian living a 'non-traditional' life in Auckland
for the time being with my unmarried wife and 9 m/o son. They are currently visiting the grandparents back in Canada
so I have a lot of time right now to try and stave off the fact that I miss them terribly. They're gone for a whole month, so to keep my mind off how lonely I am, I've decided to do some research
on our next 'big adventure.'
We're both in our early 30's and have been talking around where our life is going to go with our little family
over the next little while.
I've always been a bit of a dreamer and a, "What do you mean I can't do that?" sort of person. Between my partner and I, we've had our share of once in a lifetime adventures at a pretty young age. We are outdoor people - I currently work as an outdoor instructor.
Living in Auckland
, you can't help but get drawn to the ocean and all those triangles dotting the harbour...fueling the latest obsession - I wanna sail! Over the next five-ten years we intend to accrue as much sailing-related knowledge as we can (I've lived most of my life far inland-with a good portion of that in a tent so I'm starting from the beginning). We plan to spend a whole lot of time on the water
, get a suitable boat, liveaboard
while outfitting and learning
, and then sail back to Canada
and suss out the next 'big adventure'. All while raising our son and maybe have another child - haha!
As a complete newbie, I intend to fully use the members of this forum for their vast knowledge and expertise so thank you in advance!
