INTERVIEW WITH


John and Julie, sailing for a living – Panama

I’ve met John and Julie in March 2017. I stayed on their sailing boat for a week. We’ve sailed around the islands of Boca del Toro and it was an unforgettable experience.

John and July live and work on their sailboat ‘Pretty’. Whether you want to learn how to surf the warm Caribbean waves, snorkel the tropical coral reefs, or simply just relax and enjoy gourmet food, it is all possible on ‘Pretty’. Julie and John both made a radical life change to make this dream come true. Julie quit her job and sold everything she owned in Canada to join John in the Caribbean while John had to sell his old beloved sailboat. John and Julie followed their passion for sailing and made it their everyday job.

Christopher and the importance of  cows

Christopher is a Masaii from Tanzania. I met him on the beach of Zanzibar. Christopher is born in Kilimanjaro. He left his family to come to the Island of Zanzibar. His family is still in Kilimanjaro and they do not speak English. His parents are very proud of Christopher, as it is special that he left his Masaii tribe to work in Zanzibar. Christopher sells Masai jewelry on the beach of Zanzibar. He makes the jewelry himself. Christopher also performs the traditional Masaii dance in hotels with his fellow Masaii friends. Christopher and I got along pretty well and I wanted to learn more about his culture. I asked Christopher to explain more about his believes and what importance cows have in his life.

I stayed in the camp and in the middle of the night I woke up because a giraffe was eating grass only 3 meters away from me. During the day we saw elephants destroying the property of Shaun and Milinda. But as Shaun says in the video, he finds it beautiful. Can you imagine to literally live with the big 5?
