How much does it cost to go cruising? How much does it cost to live on a boat? These are…
This month we got back to the boat after spending 3 weeks in Houston selling off the rest of our belongings! Check out the boat projects we’ve finished since moving back aboard.
I’m the first one to wake up every morning. I emerge from our nest of blankets and sleeping bags, all piled high, five sleepy people snuggled in one room at the close of each day. The dawn awakens me. It’s cold so I slip my socks back on my feet and peek out one of the port windows surrounding our cabin. The water beckons.
So what’s it like selling (almost) everything you own and packing up your family for an indefinite adventure?
Exhausting. Exciting. Thrilling. Humbling.
It has been a challenging, exciting time the last couple of months. First we had our initial three week trip to our boat for the first time as a family. There was so much to do to get ready, everyday I felt overwhelmed by something, whether making lists, packing or knowing what to say to family and friends about our trip. But the trip itself was amazing and fulfilling, despite it’s challenges.
