We are Tjeerd and Valerie, a couple who travel the world by sailboat.
Welcome to our little domain.
Are you a dream-chaser, a travel-lover or just someone who likes to get entertained about (our) adventures? Then this virtual environment is intended for you.
On here we share our journey around-the-world and the experience we gained so far.
“We travelled into the blue and now we are living our dream"
It all started a while back (2010) when we met each other while studying in the same field (building construction & architecture). We fell in love and had a perfect life together;
good careers, family and friends. But still there was something missing. We both felt a desire to go explore, discover and visit new places, to escape the ordinary.
We decided to follow our inner compass, so we build towards our life-goals, and transformed our dreams into plans..
- december 2015 we bought our boat, a Beneteau Oceanis 430.
- the years after we gave her a big refit and saved some money for the trip.
- another four years later (2019) we finally set sail..
Now, we’re 3 months and about 3.000 miles further and still on the move…
We’re glad you stopped by, hope you’ll get inspired and stick with us the rest of our journey.
