Twenty Eight Feet- Life on a Little Wooden Boat

Wanderlust Wednesday:


Twenty Eight Feet is an 8.5 minute documentary about David Welsford.  A man who decided that life was more than a career or stability in the traditional sense.  Instead he opted for a nomadic lifestyle (something I’ve been seriously daydreaming about and considering lately).  David restored a, you guessed it, 28-foot boat and has been living on it, traveling around and loving life.  There were two quotes from this film that I really loved (because they’re concerns of mine) and I thought I’d share those, and then let you enjoy this incredible short film by Kevin A Fraser:

“I think I understand money, in my way of understanding money, which is, once you figure out how to make enough, then go to the things that make you happy.  There’s always a way to make money.  There’s always enough to live.  If I have enough to go and have a beer, and I have enough to go and have a beer, and I have enough to go to the grocery store and I can put enough diesel in the tanks of the boat, and I think I’m one of the richest people in the world; I feel great.”

“If you think I’m a dirtbag, then you don’t understand the lifestyle, and that’s okay with me too.

    Thank you for posting this, Paige. This was incredibly inspiring to watch! I’ve always wanted to sail around the world (not that I know how to sail) and I obviously like the nomadic lifestyle so I really enjoyed it this. I love those quotes too – as long as you have money for a beer….

      No problem! I, also not knowing how to sail, would love to sail around the world… Or at least through the Americas much further I think I would get seriously seasick!
      I have truly enjoyed following your nomadic lifestyle and hope our paths cross someday and that we will have enough money for a beer, or two, or three…
