We all dream about it: quitting the daily routine, albeit reassuring, but so predictable, to take ourselves to the other side of the ocean and see if “lagoon blue” is a real color, discover amazing islands surrounded by coconut palms… and at last be able to watch our children grow. But are you made for this life? There’s only one way to find out: take this test. And then you’ll know if your dream, finally, can become reality…

You answered mostly A
Travel, escape, adventure and meeting new people… you love seeing all that on TV. But in the end, it’s the way in which you travel which best meets your expectations. Our advice: take a week’s vacation from time to time, going a little farther each time. You end up getting a taste for it and maybe you too, one day…



You answered mostly B
You love travelling and have no fear of the unknown. And you’re also one of the lucky ones who is open to the opportunities the world has to offer, and love meeting the kind of people you only find by travelling. Bravo! Make the most of your visit to LE NAUTIC 2015 and follow our “CATAMARAN & TRI FRIENDLY” route to get all the info on a sabbatical year at sea. And it’s highly likely we’ll be meeting up in an anchorage sometime soon. See you in the Grenadines this winter?



You answered mostly C
Why on Earth did you bother taking this test? You know that you’re set for (at least) a year’s sabbatical. It’s no longer a dream, but a concrete project. All that remains to be done is to get yourself organized, by following our route around LE NAUTIC. And don’t forget to send an account of your travels to the editor of MULTIHULLS WORLD…
