Sailing Yacht

Bright culture – Dark history | Nias Island – Ep. 91

Headhunting was practiced on this remote island until the late 20th Century! After so long sailing amongst uninhabited islands and white sand beaches, we step ashore in Nias and get to experience the rich culture and heritage there. By chance we got to see a tribal war dance and demonstration of the stone jumping that the island is famous for. Sailing around the world is all about the people we meet and the rich cultural experiences that exist in each country we visit.

We are a British couple who set off from England back in 2016 to fulfill our dream of sailing around the world on our 37ft sail boat, Florence. We are still sailing and along the way we share the live aboard lifestyle with the highs and lows of travelling around the world by boat, our own little tiny house. Boat life out at sea, on the ocean, and off the grid.
