Journey through our Galley – Food

One thing about living on a sailboat is that people ask you some really funny questions. Oddly enough, the most common one for us has been “What do you eat on a boat”? No, we’re not stockpiling ramen noodles, haha. Although I did enjoy telling people that at first just for the reaction. An

The Questions I Get…

So this might fall into the category of “touchy feely posts”. 😆 Hard to believe it’s been a month since I quit my job, sold my belongings, drove cross country, and took on an entirely new life and routine. Speaking of, I’ve been asked A LOT lately by family and friends, “

68 thousand steps through Paris!

Ah, Paris, easily one of the most beautiful cities on earth! In October I spent three full days exploring the City of Lights with two of my best girlfriends. Beyond the city’s visual appeal, its cultural offerings are just as fantastic! We booked our flights in early August, with a great deal t
