So this trip is welding us together closer than ever but there is more to our adventure: Ric and I want the boys to be experiencing and enjoying the beauty of our world but also getting an idea of our many global problems. We want them to grow up to be responsible, kind and resourceful men who know how to take their happiness into their own hands. Or as Behan Gifford from Sailing Totem said so beautifully: "We want them to know that they belong to humanity and not to one little group of people. And they belong to the earth".
And we want to inspire others to make bold decisions, to think out of the box, to get from "Yes, but..." to "Why not?". To encourage people to not let money (or more accurately: the lack of money) stop them from going after their dreams - there is always a way! That is why we are documenting our adventures. We were all absolute newbies to filming when we started off (let's face it, we still are) but we are working on improving our skills and equipment and that's where you come in. We don't expect or assume anyone will contribute any more to our videos than simply watching them. We are super happy about that by itself. But if you feel like supporting us because you want to see more - it'll all go back into producing more videos!
And maybe the occasional ice-cream for the boys. Who are filming and producing most of the videos by the way (and they have been dreaming about a drone and a better microphone for months...).
