We all dream of quitting our job (or at least taking a long break) to fulfill our passion but only a few of us are courageous enough to embark on that path. (ALSO SEE The incredible story of a couple who quit their jobs to travel!) Sergi Basoli is one of those few people. He quit his nine-to-five job to kayak along the Mediterranean coastline. The Mediterranean Sea is completely surrounded by land and it is popular among tourists. The region has several retreats that cater to every taste. If you love beaches, Menorca and Santorini are perfect for you, and if you like to party, then Majorca will not disappoint you.

Sergi started his solo journey from his hometown, Barcelona, in the summer of 2013 and has reached till Sicily. He explored the island on his way and made sure that the pace is slow enough not to miss too much. Within three years, he covered more than 5000 km (his journey continues). While stopping at Sardinia, he found a dog, and he named him Nirvana. Nirvana readily hopped onto his kayak and never left. Nirvana became Sergi’s ‘sailor dog’ and lives with him. They explore the new places together befriending everyone they meet along the coast. Check out how cute they look together. (ALSO SEE Quitting your job to travel? Get ready to scrub toilets!)
