It is interesting that a magazin (etc) in Sweden is having a problem with a TV series that show 4 families that have left the "normal" life and are doing something they dream about. One of the families is sailing- of course.
We had to look at one of the programs on internet. Well looking at the sailing family, the program we saw gave just a picture of a family "sightseeing".Having a great time visiting-looking etc.
You never see any hard work in the engine room or any homeschooling and all the work behind the food preparation etc.
Never mind that, we can live with the picture. I can also live with the picture that the paper is having about families that simply take no responsibility- just living their dream.
I think I have been very clear on the fact that we feel priviledged, just the fact that being born in a country where we have not to struggle 12 hours a day to get a meal on the table, or the fact that we can leave our house and expect it to still be there for us- is great.
So how bad is it that we do take the opportunity to just travel for three years?
That remains to be discussed...
