Today the Captain and I both gave notice to quit our jobs.

June 16th 2014 when we collect the boat we will be sailing off for good. No returning and leaving our girl of the ocean all alone, she will be our new home address permanently.


This means:

We kiss our three goodbye sooner and will leave them alone instead…

We get to finish work sooner

I now have a house / life to pack up, sell or store and a new life to put into two 30 kg bags for the plane.

There is no turning back from this point on. The last time I felt like this was at the kitchen table with the final wedding invitation in the envelope and my Mum said “This is it. This is the last moment you can easily change your mind” I was as sure then as I am as sure now.



A Happy Day

PS Today I also quit on Windows 8. I hate it so much I am now moving to a MAC. This is almost as big as selling your home, telling your family you are leaving to live on a boat and quitting good safe jobs.

    WOW! Indeed. Many heart felt congratulations.

    And, I always have said Windows 8 is the best reason ever to buy a MAC. I’m sure you’ll love it, I love mine.

    Hi Renee,

    Thanks for support. It will very exciting times to try both a Mac and a new home. Absolutely everyone who runs a Mac tells me they love it so I am hopeful I will too.
