Being on a boat in a spectacular place on a beautiful day is splendid.  But sailing isn’t the fastest, easiest, or most comfortable way to travel or live.

So why do we revel in discomfort?  This is a question I ask myself after every sleepless night or rough voyage across a sporting sea (we sailors say sporting so it doesn't sound like we're complaining).  Because being a liveaboard, is a very mixed bag. It’s completely impractical and yet we think it’s the greatest way to exist on the planet.  We love it and this is a theory on why.


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
