Two Months of Mini Retirement
I’m two months into my mini retirement.
The first month went by with having a good time in Copenhagen.
Having a good time equals:
- Seeing friends and family
- Drinking (too much) beers
- Renovating my dad’s (and my boat)
- Doing some brazilian jiu jitsu
One Month of Folk High School
The first month of being at this new school where I would like to improve my sailing skills is gone.
And boy, there is a lot of impressions by being here.
I have already improved my sailing a lot by being here. Everything I know about sailing is something my dad has taught me. My dad is an awesome teacher, but I enjoy learning stuff from other people too. (I have already learned my dad something)
I do feel a bit old though. A lot of the people on this school is between 18-21 years. Which I feared would be an issue for me. Since I’m 28. Everybody is super nice, but I do get tired of playing beer pong third weekend in a row.
Even though I would like to sail more than we do at the moment. I would encourage everyone to try a folk high school (especially for foreigners). It is an awesome opportunity to gain a new skills fast, in a super cosy way where you meet many awesome people.
I pay 6000 DKK/month (900 $) for being here. Which is cheaper than if I just had my regular life back in Copenhagen. I have become a better sailor, awesome and organic food is cooked for us three times a day. And we do not have to do the dishes. It is a huge luxury to be here.
