A most unique mindset.
And hard? Can't get a girlfriend and ostracized by part of the community? Yes thats bloody hard!

The videos excellence touches on those two points: "If people think I am a dirt-bag..." and lack of relationships is a delightful, tender way intermixed with beautiful 'enviable' lifestyle shots. But remember those 'enviable' moments, like thee scrubbing of the frying pan over the side ain't so enviable in real life. Or having worked hard all our lives to be able to, in retirement, cast off the lines only to be thought of as 'dirt bags'.

Good on him and lets hope his cruise goes well and he utterly enjoys it... but lets not take this video as a "What to Expect" 101 because its not, the video is a glorious piece of art depicting a unique person, thats all.
