About This Week’s GuestsFull Circle Sailing

Full Circle Sailing

with Monique and Paul van der Linden

Monique and Paul have been cruizing the globe in their Full Circle Sailing boat since 2011.

They have been around the world and are planning to keep on doing this for at least two years (at the time of this writing).

Paul is an ex-marketeer and has been

sailing longer than Monique.

Monique is an ex-stewardess who was looking for someone to go sailing with.

They found each other and off they went.

With their Full Circle Sailing business, they sometimes take guests for a stretch.

“Life out of the Netherlands is a lot less hectic. Other cultures just seem to have more time”

Their tips to become as old as possible as healthy as possible are:

  1. Being from the Netherlands we know that life there is very hectic. Out here (mainly Asia), people tend to have much more time to do things. It simply all moves slower.
  2. Be open and be yourself. A smile often gets greeted with a smile so be friendly.
  3. If you don’t understand something, ask. Ask questions it shows you’re interested.

Chris Smit

I'm passionate about Cultural Difference. I have been helping organizations save time and money when they work Internationally for the last 19 years. I have had the fortunate opportunity to hold lectures, workshops, and consulting projects on this subject World Wide. It has made me understand my own culture much better, and appreciate the differences around the world.
I have a Master's Degree in Organisational Psychology and have lived in the USA, the Netherlands and, currently, in Belgium.
Thank you!
