Every year I spend one month just sailing, but I still work when I’m on the boat. You never separate work from leisure. A boat is like a magic world, like a little island.
– Renzo Piano
I used to own an island in the Seychelles and had a big boat there and one day I came across some Somali pirates who were passing by on their way to re-provision their boat. They didn’t even acknowledge me – which is unheard of among sailors – and it was like looking into the eyes of a black mamba.
