Confession: When travel fatigue sets in

It’s been 7 months since we began season 3 of our sailing adventure. That’s 650+ days as full-time cruisers/live-aboards, and my oh my has it been a whirlwind. One thing I haven’t been able to shake this past season is feeling guilty about craving “normalcy”. Granted, this

Guadeloupe: France in the tropics – Part 2

Ahhh . . . Les Saintes! A truly remarkable little archipelago. It’s a cluster of eight small islands with some of the most beautiful bays in the world. Its off-grid Caribbean charm instantly won us over. Along with all the fresh baguettes, beignets, and gelato. The sail from mainland Guad

Guadeloupe: France in the tropics

It’s true…WE LOVE GUADELOUPE! We spent over a month+ in the butterfly-shaped 630 square-mile island duo, and it did not disappoint us. With its lush rainforest, volcanic peaks, and all the delicious food and wine you could possibly want. Guadeloupe blends some of the most appealing aspec

St. Kitts & Nevis

With its pristine coastline and lush rainforest our approach into St. Kitts has made for one of my favorite “Land Ho” moments. As the sun brightly shined, pops of olive, lime, emerald, and pear randomly scattered the hillside and mountain tops. All of these distinct hues of green made

It’s our boat-aversey!

T W O years ago to the date, we moved onto our floating home in Ft. Lauderdale, FL to pursue a dream of sailing through the Bahamas and Caribbean. Well folks, we are doing it!!! 🙂 Our travels in 2019 have brought gratitude for some of the smallest things, and a realization of some huge wonders [

Sint Eustatius: an island out of time

Our passage over to Sint Eustatius, locally known as Statia (Stay-sha), was anything but as predicted. Starting with a Mega yacht traffic jam coming out of the Simpson Bay lagoon where we were greeted with rain showers and squalls right after raising the sails followed by a brief engine fail and end

ST. Martin / ST. Maarten: a land with two faces

After weeks of preparation and a relaxing Thanksgiving in BVI, the forecast finally called for a good window to cross the Anegada Passage over to St. Martin. We staged up at our fav, Cooper island and waited for our 5pm departure, a 13 hr/ 85 NM journey. It was a motoring event only but we were

Time to splash

We had a fun summer on land over hurricane season but we were also on the move a lot! 2019 was certainly a very busy year for travel. After securing Sea duction on land and leaving BVI in July 2019 we bounced around the US for a few months; Florida, Georgia, California, Nashville, Chicago, North Ca

BVI: Exploring Nature’s little Secret

Island time rules in the British Virgin Islands! Every spot has its own flavor and flair, if you want to party, there is always a place to party. If you want to relax, plenty of that as well. We spent the full 30 days of our cruising permit island hopping and FINALLY SAILING! After a wild […

St. John: A Heart for the “Love City”

We’ve been all over St. Thomas and the British Virgin Islands for the past two months and St. John has been our favorite! We just keep gravitating back here. St. John may be the smallest of the 3 U.S. Virgin Islands but it is strikingly beautiful! 60% of the island is taken up by the […
