Back in 2016 we travelled around parts of Europe and found we kept gravitating to the coast. In a flash of the blinding obvious we thought ‘We should buy a boat!’ So, the journey began, and our dream began to take shape.
We sold all our stuff and that is a story in itself, and it took years!!
In 2018 the search began for a boat, the boat… our dream. We looked at sailboats in Perth, Western Australia and Adelaide, South Australia. There was one that came close in Sydney, New South Wales but we missed the boat you could say. Our search continued overseas in the UK, Portugal and Greece. Then in October 2019 we travelled to Preveza, Greece and found THE boat for us.
Since then, we have learnt sooo very much.
We continue to learn new things about our boat, ourselves and each other every single day.
G’day! We’re Kim and Stephen from beautiful Perth, Western Australia. Our gorgeous daughters are all adults now, so we ‘left home’ to explore more of the world.
