As we spent the day wandering around what felt like the end of the world, it was hard not to reflect on the path that our lives have taken. Less than 2 years ago this flourishing dream of a simple life of travel was only a seedling of possibilities. But watching the sun setting on a shipwreck off the tip of Africa, a place we never dreamed of going, was a full circle moment for us. The two oceans flowing together seemed like they symbolized our dreams meshing with our reality right in front of our eyes. The tough decisions we had to make and the things we had to give up in order to follow this dream of ours felt all worth it in this moment.
Money is a great thing to have but as Chris said from the rocks of Cape Agulhas, “No one can ever take this away from us.” And he’s so right. What we are learning from each other and from other cultures will be with us for the rest of our lives, and those things are more valuable to me than any designer handbag or fancy car.
I am not saying that our view on life is right or wrong, it just works for us and that’s what I think is important. Find your own “Cape Agulhas” and make it happen. Be who you want to be on your own terms.
Life is Short, so in the words of the Rebirth Brass Band, Do Whatcha Wanna!
