This probably seems painfully obvious but chartering a sailboat doesn’t guarantee anyone any actual sailing or fair weather.  And coaxing mother nature to blow our way has never been our forte.  But determination on the other hand is something we have in spades, and we were determined to sail this boat!

So we find ourselves in a delicate dance with the elusive winds of monsoon season as we make our way to the renowned Phi Phi islands.  Home to some of the best diving in the country, nature’s most ferocious winged tormentors (mosquitoes), long tailed monkeys and stunning ocean meets jungle views.

We're back in our cruisers paradise of sail, eat, dive, explore, eat, sleep and repeat.  It’s all sunshine and curry date nights until the skies crack open and the rain cascades down like a waterfall.  Our boat springs a leak and so does does Jason's exuberance.  Apparently, a monsoon is his sirens song.


WE’RE JASON AND NIKKI WYNN. A couple of modern-day documentarians, perpetual travelers, and seekers of tall tales.

We’ve been chasing our curiosity around the world on wheels and keels since 2011. Why? Because curiosity is the key to unlocking life. It pushes us outside our comfort zone, softens our assumptions, and helps us embrace the great unknown. The more we let our curiosity lead the way, the more we discover about ourselves and the world around us.

Our home is also our transportation and we spend weeks away from civilization and sometimes land. Self-reliance and living a sustainable lifestyle are a must. It's all about managing our resources and we’re always looking for new and better ways to do so.

We've lived off the grid for over 10 years now in everything from a Van to RV to a Sailboat. And over time we have learned a lot about renewable energy, creating safe drinking water, and managing our waste.

Our journey is ever-evolving but the mission remains the same: #CultivateCuriosity
