  1. This is such a beautiful story it is so lovely that he is living out his dream and is so happy! I hope that the loch ness monster is real and that if anyone finds it then it is this guy because that would be the best.

  2. I can understand the passion one puts behind something he loves. But to me, this looks like a way of living. While he is hunting for Nessie, he is not hindered by it. He enjoys his life, he has everything he needs, and he knows what he wants. It’s like staying in a job for a decade or more (like I have). I admire people who are able to stay passionate for this long. It’s very rare among the youth now.
