Travel Theme: Wind | Power and Livelihood

In response to Where’s my backpack? Travel Theme: Wind.

Power and Livelihood

The wind is ever-present but always invisible.

The wind sometimes appears as a form of energy that provides power supply to industries and homes. The wind is considered clean and green energy as it is a renewable natural resource. The wind turns turbines such as those in the photo below, and kinetic energy is converted to mechanical energy. The mechanical energy is then either used to perform work or converted to electricity to power various machines and applianaces.

The wind at others times is harnessed to drive sailboats that provide a form of livelihood to people who live with the seas. The wind blows and the sailors turn the sails to catch the wind, and that properls the sailboats forward. The sailors adjust the angle of the sails to suit the direction of the blowing wind so as to steer the sailboat. The sailors fetch travellers and tourists around islands and earn their income from the service. The sailors sail themselves home at the end of the day. In that way, the wind provides a form of livelihood for the islanders.

The ever-present invisible force that the wind provides bring power and livelihood to people.

Do you enjoy the wind? What are your best or worst memories of the wind?

Enjoy!
