“Sow your wild oats while you can, for you will not be young forever.”

Heeding his grandfather’s words, Harold spent the five years after graduation as a bit of jetsam on the sea spray, traveling the world.

But he kept the freedom of the sea at heart, with a promise to return.

His days traveling the world aimlessly was his “glory days” to be cherished and remembered, and, he hopes, possibly even revisited…

      Yep, both of both worlds – I think we should all try to have a few years in our lives that are for ourselves before devoting our all to our careers… (I guess for me it will be after my career ;) ) thanks.
