I used to have a friend who was a seafarer. Every vacation his family would go seafaring in a cruise ship to different countries.
As a result of continuous seafaring he would join the school late by atleast a month or sometimes even more.
This used to happen every single year and nobody took any note of the fact that he would join school late after the summer vacations, as it was well known around the school that he and his family was away seafaring to various countries.
Then my school got changed and there too I had a friend who would go seafaring to exotic locations as his hometown was a completely different location. It was most probably in Greece, so by default he had to do a lot of seafaring.
After I grew up, I came to know of a person, who used to be an excellent seafarer. He had a huge estate by the sea in England and as his home was by the sea .He was used to live by the sea, that sea faring became his hobby, his passion and his past time. His skills at sea was marvellous and one thing about any seafarer is that they know how to tie knots and save lives at sea. They are courageous, bold and extremely well trained and most importantly, they are self-trained.
Being a seafarer isn’t as easy as it seems. It’s a hard work and journey sometimes needs to be done alone with the faith being completely on one’s own self.
