Hi, my name is Sarah. This is my blog. My family and I left our well ordered life in the Discovery Islands of British Columbia, Canada; to chase a life long dream of sailing with our children. (2 girls age 8 and 10 at the beginning of the adventure). We purchased an ex-charter boat in Croatia after spending over a decade saving. We moved aboard Otoka in late May 2018.
I was never much of a sailor, but it had always been a dream of my husband to buy a sail boat and live aboard. In 2015 I had the opportunity to join Exxpedition Amazon crew to sail from Recife, Brazil to Bartica, French Guyana. This journey changed everything for me. It brought into focus all the amazing lessons that the Ocean can teach us about ourselves and our humanity. I came home with the knowledge that I was going to make this dream come true and in the process gift my kids with resourcefulness that they will be able to draw on for the rest of their life. Oh, and maybe by writing this blog I will find a way to my true calling of inspiring others to live a more connected life to their own families, their community and to the earth itself.
