I'm thinking about being a hand on a sailing or motor yacht starting in Sydney ~09 Dec 2013 traveling to anywhere (islands or countries) for a few weeks to a few months.
I've spent time on both types of yachts, but am no expert sailor. If you're looking for some help on board and a pal on shore you should consider me. I'm fun, outgoing, not afraid of much but big sharks and being hit on - it annoys me.
On board - I'd be happy snorkeling, fishing, playing cards or games, reading, writing, drawing, and letting you talk every once in a while ; ), and learning about the boat, navigation, engineering, your hobbies?, etc. On shore - and I would hope we'd get to go ashore fairly often - I'd like to explore, hike, see the local sites/culture, help gather supplies (and shop for fun), try the local food and beverage, etc. Like I said in my profile (if you can read it) I'm pretty social so am happy to have guests on board or meet/socialize with you and your friends on shore. I'm open to different types of people and lifestyles (and borderline crazy about animals) - or traveling prob wdn't be so much fun.
Although I don't consider myself a princess- I am a bit modest. I would like your boat to have a bathroom (meaning a commode, sink and a shower - ideally), and I'd need my own sleeping area, too. Is that too much to ask? I think not!
I'm also an only child/oldest child (4 half siblings from 34-10 yrs old!) so I'm happy being alone. And I'm also self-sustaining financially (I have my own little consulting business), so I can afford my personal expenses and trip home from wherever we end up. : )
So, where wd you like to go? What do you have in mind? Any questions for me? Contact me at wwmn86 at google mail's usual address! - Amanda
