Modern Nomads

May 4, 2017

We watched a beautiful film called Given last night, about a family of surfers, (Mum, Dad, six-year-old Given and his baby sister, True) who pack up their island home of Kauai to travel the world. With Given as our narrator, we travel through 15 countries  –– Iceland, Thailand and Peru, among them ––  and see the sea, the sand, the poppy fields and the snow capped mountains through his eyes. We watch Given’s father, Aamion teach him to craft a spear and start a fire, to build a shelter out of bamboo and palm leaves, all the while sharing life wisdoms with his son. It’s all very idyllic and bathed in golden light. But with a curious, wanderlusting 6-year-old at the helm, that is just what it should be.
