Hi, my boyfriend and I are currently travelling South East Asia and are at the moment in Langkawi looking for a possibly yacht ride up to Thailand. We are keen to volunteer in any way and are very eager to learn how to sail.
I myself, am starting a writing degree when I return home to Scotland, and so am writing along the way, recording my travels (as most backpackers do). I am however very interested in writing a wee bit about the 'yachting culture' and it's differences and possible similarities to backpacking - independant travel, yet in a high class way. As I have never travelled on a yacht before it all seems very exciting and new to me and something which I think attracts a certain crowd of people. These are only guesses and I am eager to find out more. It will a completely different experience compared to roughing it in India for the past month and a half!
So if anyone knows of a yacht who would be interested in taking on a couple of adventurous, wide eyed and eager travellers, I would greatly appreciate it if you could get in touch.
Cheers and enjoy your travels
And as a fellow backpacker once said -
'if you are to regret anything, only regret the things you've done, not the things you haven't'
