The Goodwin Project

I’m completely inspired. The Goodwin family left their home on Kauai to travel the world with cameras in tow. At the moment, they are in Australia (most of their destinations are guided by the waves). Aamion, his wife Daize and their two children, Given and Truth will “nomadically trace continents to places where waves meet their edges, envoys of aloha. It’s what they will learn, what they bring others, what they will pass on to their children in the hyper-expanded classroom, the lab of direct being; a legacy passed from a father to his family.” It’s an adventure in the making. Their site is totally interactive and random admirers and friends can drop a line with recommended travels, people to meet and hidden local spots.

Their unconventional journey reminds me of one of my favorite documentaries, Surfwise. Its an (at times) challenging look at love, family and the personal pursuit of happiness. What happens when one drops off the grid, sheds ones belongings and old ways and travels? I’m inspired by the notion of the self and the world as the guru. Jason and I travel often, we explore, we meet locals and eat strange foods! People say that once you have kids you are tied down…the life of the nomad is limited to the unhinged traveler. Surely, your rhythm changes but it doesn’t have to be that way. We are free to roam, especially with family and our loves. I’m looking forward to a different kind of adventure.

Such an awesome life. Take me back to Thailand! Follow The Goodwin Project here.
