If hindsight were 20/20 I don’t know if we would have done half the things we have done.
Four years ago, we bought a boat and set out to explore the world with absolutely no sailing experience. Experts and novices all around the world wide web told us we would fail, sink, and die.
Well, surprise, surprise, we’re still alive! Turns out you CAN just go buy a boat and sail about the world.
BUT…that doesn’t mean it’s been easy.
To say we had (and still have) a lot to learn is an understatement. Knowing we were clueless, we made a video so we would be able to one day reflect on our newbie expectations and compare them to reality.
Looking back at our peculiar beginning now is both comical and endearing. We really had no idea what was ahead of us. We thought our RV experience would help…and it did…but there is sooo much more to boat life than we could comprehend.
Currently, we’re stuck in isolation in Fiji. Restrictions and closures keep us from exploring so we’ve been sifting through years of videos, mistakes, misadventures, and victories. Asking ourselves, if we could go back in time what advice would we give ourselves, what would we want to know?
So, if hindsight is 20/20, here it is, the realities of living on a sailboat. The stuff we wished we would’ve known before we bought a boat, and set off around the world.
WHO ARE WE?
We’re Jason and Nikki Wynn. We been living #OffTheGrid and exploring the world for almost a decade.
Our first six years of #travel were an epic road trip around North America.
Now we’re on a #sailing voyage about the world. Did we have any previous sailing experience, of course not!
Neither of us is overly talented, smart, rich, lucky, or retired. But that doesn’t stop us from reaching far-flung destinations, having wild adventures, and managing everything that makes living aboard a moving vessel possible.
We’re two ordinary people that just so happen to live an extraordinary life.
Because… Life is an adventure!
Extraordinary moments out there for anyone willing, and wanting, to go after it. Ya know life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
And this is why we publish our lives on the world wide web. We share in hopes of inspiring you to find your adventure.
Shared with LOVE 💕
