I love the ocean and would take the opportunity to live on it as long as I knew that there would be regular excursions back to land

It's a 50/50 for me.Haha. I want to spend half of my life on the sea but of course with essential things. Then after I enjoy the life their better find a place that satisfies me.

No. It will be very difficult to imagine life away from the creature comforts of the land. It will take something drastic - like life on land ending - for me to even consider that option.

Hm, I've never even been on a cruise before. I've been on a pedal boat...for about 15 minutes in total. I'm open to the idea of living at sea for about 2 weeks. After that, it's land time.

I would not agree to this - I have read too many survival stories about shipwrecks and storms at sea!
That's very important to consider. Throw in the fact that I can't swim... :shock:

I have no problem with other people doing it, but there is no way that I could live on the sea. It's just too much. I want my kids to run and play and have too many experiences. A boat would be way to restrictive, in my opinion.

No, because I love the smell of nature around me, fresh grass and slight wind moving through the trees at summer dusk, the small crunching sound that gravel makes when you walk on it, the smell of rain falling on hot asphalt, dogs running around chasing imaginary squirrels. Oh the list is endless. The sea is beautiful but also truly terrifying in a way. I probably lack even the basic skills to survive its moods.

I've seen many movies and shows where people have been on amazing journeys. The amazing things people take the time to do when they take time for self discovery and exploration. The first instance of such an adventure I saw was on Dawson's Creek. I get so sea sick and don't know how to swim well. Sadly I wouldn't be able to do this.

I personally like being out on the water, so I think I would enjoy life on the sea. However, I would have to have some sort of internet access for at least once every week or two, just to be able to post book reviews and download new books. I also don't get seasick very easily. However, eventually, I might want to settle down into one spot and at least be able to go into the town to buy groceries and have any potential children I may have make some friends.
