From Dream to Reality
After having enough of being in Brisbane about 2 weeks ago after a pretty crap weekend I decided it's time to get by butt into gear and start making our dream of sailing the world into a reality.
How to do this with a small savings account, and no boat!?
For starters, start telling people your dream. Once people know about your dream they will continually ask how your progress is coming and when you are setting off for your voyage - this will help to inspire. Plus i kind of have a bit of an ego so I would hate to admit defeat to this amazing dream and have it remain as just that, a dream.
Secondly i started emailing multiple television stations/channels to see if they would be interested in turning our journey into a documentary - as this is what i plan to do whilst out on the ocean anyway!
I sent an email to one particular channel on 05/03 and got a reply today, 14/03, they said they appreciate my ideas and that i should send through in more detail the scope and/or a short trailer! This is extremely exciting for me - even the thought that a reply means just that one small step closer to our dream. Only problem - i don't have a trailer as I haven't set off on the voyage yet....hmmmm.... something to ponder about this week i guess!
If anyone reading this has any recommendations for me, please let me know.
