Life is too short, the journey begins…

Jamie & Rachel

The calm before the storm

These pages catalogue the ups and downs of our (Jamie & Rachel’s) quest to break the hum drum routine of everyday life, to get out there and see if the wider world has more to offer.

Our mission is to find a yacht big enough for two people to live on (and sometimes a couple of guests) without killing each other.

We would like to discover the wonderful hidden treasures of the world that are usually only known to locals, walk the countryside, mountains and jungles, find beautiful secluded bays and beaches while supporting ourselves with what work we can find along the way.

We are both extremely hard working, I am a software developer and Rachel is a proficient cook and a qualified teacher, once we have purchased the boat we will have our accommodation and transport, so as a minimum we need to find money for food.

We are under no illusion, we realise that the boat will cost money to maintain and anchoring every night (to avoid mooring costs) will not always be possible, but hopefully we will meet many interesting people along the way and encounter plenty of exciting potential to earn a good living.

    PS: Better to reef the sails early and motor than shred them and roll-over in a squall!
