This site has been created to document our lifelong dream of retiring on a sailboat and sailing around the world together.
This dream came about over a couple of years. It started out as just a small conversation. We then began to take the idea more seriously and really began molding our lives around this dream. Our first step in actually working towards our dream was to hang pictures of sailboats in our bedroom to give us that daily visual every morning when we wake up of what our priority is if we are to realize this dream someday.
Though we have both been on boats in our lives on one level or another, neither of us had ever sailed until our first vacation together in Key West, FL in 2008. We took a sailing/snorkeling/kayaking trip. The dream was not realized at that point.
In 2009, we met a family that had been living aboard a boat with their son for 3 years. They had come ashore to work to get some more money to return to their boat and continue their dream. They homeschooled their son who was ten at the time. We were very intrigued by their lifestyle.
We're not sure the exact moment that it hit us that this idea had evolved from, "Wow, that would be a great way to live," to, "Let's do this!" All we know is that since the idea evolved, it's only continued to evolve, and we are determined to live our dream!
Join us as we build our dream, learn about our boat, how to sail, and shape our lives to forge this amazing path towards our future in paradise!
