Chat with a 67-year-old German friend (he spent 30 years sailing around the world)

Chat with a 67-year-old German friend (he spent 30 years sailing around the world)

Chatted with a 67-year-old friend from Germany this morning and asked him many questions. The 67-year-old should be called the old man in some countries, but he still can't see it, he thinks it is about 50 years old .

He started sailing around the world at the age of 36 and spent 30 years traveling around the world. Through the sea, he went to more than 50 different countries. I asked him various questions and I saw different perceptions from him.

 

  1. What is the regret of life?

We communicated in English throughout. He said he made music products before the age of 36, and then at the age of 36 decided to travel the world through the sea. 

I asked him: Do you have any regrets now? What if he was about to die?

He said: There are no major regrets now.

I started to feel curious, why didn't he have big regrets? I understand later. Because his main dreams have already been fulfilled, he also said: What if I am going to die tomorrow? so what? Dead to death ...

At the time, I thought he had a narrower cognition and was a contented type. It was later discovered that it was not ... because he mentioned one of the experiences at sea:

He was at sea for two months at a time and had never seen land.

I asked him: How did you spend 2 months? Do n’t you feel lonely if no one communicates? Without a woman, how can sex be resolved?

He said he had many things to do on board. You can fish, fish, and fish every day, and then you can cook a variety of food yourself (because the water and food on the boat are also abundant) ... 

And he has three hobbies: One is reading. He said that he had read thousands of books, English books, German books ...

Then he also likes guitar, playing guitar and music by himself ...

Besides, he also likes to paint, painting different seascapes, different scenery ...

As for the woman, he said it was simple: you have a right hand, you can solve it yourself. And there is a left hand ... haha, and you can sit on the stool and solve it yourself ...

Left and right hands can solve this by themselves I understand. But he stood up halfway at the time and said that it would be solved through a stool. I didn't really understand ...

 

  1. About God and Faith

I asked him again, do you believe in heaven or God? Do you often ask who you are, where you are from, and where you are going?

He said he had thought about it too. Sometimes on the vast sea, there are no people or boats for hundreds of miles around. At that time, it is very suitable for thinking ...

He said at that time, he felt that his people and boat were just a small spot in the vast sea. And the earth is a small point of the solar system, and the solar system is a small point of the universe ... In the time course of the universe for millions of years ... I am just a small point ...

He went to more than 50 countries and found that different countries have different cultures, different sciences, and different knowledge. Can't finish learning at all.

Then he said that the reason why many people are pursuing religion and God is not to fear death, but to seek mental relief, so as not to suffer and get happiness ... he is very happy now.

He said: Look, I live in such a good villa in the Philippines now. The four-row house is his. The villa was built by him (it cost more than 1 million US dollars). Every morning when I get up, I can see such a good panorama and sea view of the Philippines. Then I breathed the fresh air brought by the surrounding woods ...

Then the pretty girl (he refers to his Filipino Maid) will bring him a delicious breakfast (I looked at his breakfast plate, which is a few eggs, bread toast, coffee, mango, etc.)

He said that I am very happy now ... So he believes a little:

He said that he believes in so many years of life experience: how you treat others, how others treat you. You are good to this world, and the world will be good to you ...

 

  1. About family and children

I asked him if he was married? Do you have children? What about parents? He said he had never been married but had two daughters. His parents have since died. He had a daughter who said that he was born in the Philippines to his girlfriend in the Philippines ...

There is also a daughter from South Korea. The Korean girlfriend he met in Hong Kong. The girlfriend also knows the languages of several countries and knows a lot ...

He also now often contacts his two daughters, both of whom are at school.

He said that when he was young, because he went to many different countries, he also met girls from many different countries ...

 

  1. About the future

In the future, he said he had no particularly important dreams. Because of several important dreams, such as traveling around the world, he has already completed. However, he still has a lot of ideas in his head and wants to do it next ...

For example, he used to travel around the Philippines on a motorcycle a few years ago. He now wants to travel around the Philippines once again when he has time ...

And if I have time, I want to write a book about his life. But he didn't want to know how this book would affect others in the future ...He said he had no way of knowing the world after his death. So just live in the moment.

There are also some commercial and business ideas he wants to implement. He said he also has companies in several other places in New York ... but all are small companies.

In short, there are many interesting ideas waiting for him to slowly become a reality. (He designed the sailing boat around the world at that time, because he had his own boat when he was very young, and he liked the boat very much. Of course, it took 10 workers to make that sailing boat and it took a long time to make it ... )

 

5.Still sorry

He said I suddenly remembered. If there are still regrets, I should work harder and do more work at a young age, so that I will not have only a few small companies, and now I can live a more comfortable life. Of course, you should not learn to smoke at a young age. Because the bad habit of smoking still affects his health ... Of course, I shouldn't smoke when I was young. Because the bad habits of smoking still affect my health ... As for drinking, he was okay. He occasionally drank some wine, not much.

 

  1. Will you be afraid on the sea? Sometimes I jump into the sea to dive or surf. Are you afraid?

He said there were times when he was afraid. But overall it was okay and nothing was wrong. Because his boat is very sturdy and can withstand great storms. Then he had guns on board. When encountering a fierce fish, he can use his gun to deal with ...

Summary 1: After talking to him, looking at this 67-year-old life, I really feel that he has experienced a lot of things and formed a theoretical system of seeing the world by himself. Whether it's about death, about family, about God, he has his own views ...

He also enjoys enjoying life ... and is very brave to do what he wants to do (For example, he wants to travel around the world by sailing. For example, he designs his own sailing boat. For example, his own villa in the Philippines is also designed by himself. So he also designed a swimming pool on the top floor of the villa ...)

That is, after he was 36 in his life, he did a lot of things he wanted to do, and also took care of several of his small companies on the ship, and managed the company through the Internet and satellite phones. Because his sailing boat also cost several million dollars to build, and the villa in the Philippines also spent more than one million dollars. So when it comes to making money, I noticed that he also kept a sensitive business sense (for example, after the chat, the candidate was taken by his pool when it was taken, which is also a good publicity ... and it was also given to me after the chat A business card with contact information and email address ...)

Summary 2: So he lived his life bravely.Enjoy life while realizing your dreams. However, he is now mainly settled in the Philippines, and it does not rule out that he will go to other places to play at different times in the future ... Anyway, he is very free.

His own brothers and sisters. Also settled in different countries, some in the United Kingdom and some in the Philippines ...

Summary 3: Everyone has their own life and values. Live the life you want, and there will be no regrets in life. Enjoy every moment of good life at the same time, cherish everyone you meet ... this is great!

 

supplement:

By the way, during the chat, he also asked me what I did, I said that I do financial investment and teach financial knowledge. He also talked about his views on finance, saying that his company in the UK was doing financial investment. He said that different people's needs are different, and everyone starts from needs:

For example, some people buy a mobile phone to take pictures. Some people buy good mobile phones to show off to friends ...

Some people buy cars for convenient transportation ... Some people buy cars for picking up girls ...

For so many years, his own business experience in financial investment: focusing on customer needs. I still agree with this!

He also talked to me about his financial company, and I was also very interested in exchanging views with him on investment ideas and financial markets.

He currently invests mainly in the digital currency market, because the digital currency market in recent years is an emerging investment market and has good investment value. The investment often returns more than 50%, sometimes even several times.
