We left California January 2017 for a journey around the world...

It was September 2015 over our random Tuesday Sushi Dinner we fantasized about backpacking together around the world for a year.  To do this we planned to quit our jobs, and rent our home in Encinitas, a small beach town 25 miles North of San Diego.  Over the next two years the plans evolved, and changed, a sailboat was added, and to afford this, we would have to sell our home.


It took us just 2 years since the initial idea.  We sold our home, minimized our belongings, bought Aquarius, and finally moved aboard  her on January 28, 2017.  Since then we’ve been living a completely different lifestyle than previously accustomed.  A life on the sea where weather and waves dictate our every move.  That random idea over dinner had become reality.

Current Location:

France, Mediterranean Sea
