The Inspiration

In all honesty, we got into this because of a whole bunch of others we’ve discovered who are documenting their journeys. Back in 2017, an old friend of Dwayne’s was discussing his project sailboat and weekend classes on Facebook. This prompted a whole discussion about how we’d love to learn to sail someday and we dove into our favorite DIY resource: YouTube. Once there, we found dozens of families who are traveling the world, working as they go, and truly enjoying life.

These are some of the best one’s we’ve found and continue to follow regularly:
