YOU ARE WHAT YOU LOVE AND HOW YOU LIVE.

We’re a couple in love with sailing and travelling. Do you like travelling? That was the first question we asked each other, even on the first day we met. That was the question that tied us together. Then Alessandro’s famous question came. Do you like sailing? Both answers: yes, one hundred percent.

We’re digital nomads who live on the boat for 12 months, working from long distance and making charters in the summer. As you can guess working from far away, we need to have some meetings on Skype. When your boss sees you in the camera with the world map in the background, from the living room of our floating house, it sounds weird, but that’s what we think it should be. We have chosen to follow our dreams.

This blog is an opportunity for us to share our adventures and experiences, and maybe others are going to be inspired to follow their dreams too!
