    Very interesting and enlightening. A lot of these things even come out on a weekend sail. My wife and I have seen marriages end because one partner had a differing idea of what staying on a boat for a time period meant.

    You are living my dream, and I look forward to each post.

    Thank you for such a heartfelt and revealing post. I have been following this adventure closely and realise that for most of us landlubbers we can only do vicariously what you and Karen are doing in reality. Traveling the world is such an enriching experience and to do it on your own pace and not on the schedule of your boss or the airlines as most of us have to deal with certainly makes me jealous.

    Thanks for the great account Frank!
    I never doubted that, but after reading the above I became even stronger in my feeling that boating life is indeed for us. Since I am not (yet) much of a sailor, it is not anytime soon when we set off to circumnavigate, but the day is coming, I know it 🙂

    Frank,
    It is so true! You have a perfect trip with the best partner you can ever have. You guys are such a great example and demonstrated that preparations for years and the understanding of what your are leaving behind will be the fruit of new experiences and forever memories but at a cost which will be quickly forgotten. Thank you so much for your blogs. I always enjoy reading them and learn. Some blogs I use on my small sailboat in my small lake….
    Enjoy the land , but enjoy the wind as most as you can.
    Gerard.
