EP129 : Antigua and Barbuda

Living on a sailboat isn't just a change of address; it's an entirely new way of life, where the ocean becomes your backyard, and every day is a new adventure. We embarked on this journey with excitement, a little fear, and a whole lot of curiosity. As we set sail, we quickly discovered that boat life is a delightful mix of challenges, spontaneity, and breathtaking beauty.

One evening, we found ourselves on a peculiar mission to find donkeys. Yes, donkeys!

Tara enthusiastically took on the role of a detective, her eyes sparkling with curiosity as she shared her observations. Soan, the spirited explorer, dashed around with boundless energy, eager to participate in the adventure. This unexpected detour was one of the many surprises boat life has thrown our way, and we've learned to embrace the twists and turns with a good laugh and a sense of wonder.

In the realm of boat living, water is never taken for granted. Our trusty watermaker is our lifeline, turning seawater into a precious resource. When it decided to take an impromptu vacation, we had to get creative and find resourceful ways to wash dishes and do laundry, all while praying for its speedy recovery.

Speaking of resourcefulness, cooking on a sailboat is an experience like no other. The day we bought a lobster from a local fisherman and cooked it on the beach felt like a win, a delicious symbol of our adaptability. Our makeshift kitchen might not rival a gourmet restaurant, but the sense of accomplishment and the stunning backdrop make every meal an unforgettable experience.

As we sail from one idyllic destination to another, we've met locals who've welcomed us with open arms, generously sharing their culture, knowledge, and even homemade fishing gear. The friendships we've formed have been some of the most rewarding aspects of our journey, reminding us that kindness and generosity transcend borders and languages.

Of course, boat life isn't always smooth sailing. Stormy weather and rough seas can make even the most hardened sailor yearn for the stability of solid ground. But just as the waves eventually calm, so too do the challenges of boat living. And it's in those moments, as we watch the sun setting over the horizon, that we're reminded of the magic of this lifestyle.

Living on a sailboat has taught us to embrace uncertainty, cherish the simple pleasures, and appreciate the beauty of our ever-changing surroundings. It's a life filled with laughter, discovery, and unforgettable moments. And although we may one day return to the comforts of a house, we know that our hearts will forever be anchored in the enchanting world of boat life.
