Runes and Rhinestones

I'm a modern day Viking, navigating my way through a stormy sea of stuff.

Wish Wednesday.

on November 14, 2012

Today I’m wishing for £750 in nifty instalments. I got an email today from Guiding, advertising places on an adventure next summer. What type of adventure I hear you cry? Why, a week long jaunt around the Channel Islands on a 72 foot racing yacht!

It appeals so much, even though it would mean leaving Hairy and not having any access to anything electrical for a week. I know, I’m stupidly attached to both my phone and my Hairy and not having either would be pretty traumatic, but it’s a week on a yacht…

I’d be one of the crew, so it’d be a week of physical labour pretty much but hey, I wouldn’t be working all the time and I could take along my Kindle for a spot of light reading. If only it wasn’t £750 because there’s no way that I can afford that sort of money on a student budget.

But would you just look at that baby. Isn’t she beautiful? I’m trying to figure out how I can do it, but it’s not looking promising unless I try to do massive amounts of fundraising.

  1. Such a beautiful boat! That would be an amazing experience… now just have to win the lottery or a sweepstakes 😉

    Sounds like one hell of an experience. At least if you can’t go you can always remind yourself you would have paid all that money (I just realized I don’t know how to type the pound symbol, ha!) to work. I’m not saying it wouldn’t be fun, but paying to work? 😉

    £750 and they make you work? Wouldn’t a nice cruise be more relaxing?

    • It definitely would be more relaxing, and I do want to do a cruise around the fjords at some point. I’m a bit of a sucker for punishment though, and it’s going to be in the middle of the summer after I finish uni – I’ll probably have been lying around doing very little for the month beforehand!
