What WE FOUND SAILING the Tuamotus

We have sailed to places of incomparable beauty, the kind that stays with you. It’s what first drew us to this life. But as time passed we realized something was missing. We were searching for a different kind of beauty - one more profound and enduring. Human connection. Kindred spirits with a passion for exploring the earth’s unspoiled, natural beauty above and below the surface. This week we find ourselves in Tahanea, an uninhabited atoll, in the Tuamotus Archipelago of French Polynesia. There is a caretaker who lives here part time but other than that, it’s just the coral, fish and other sea creatures beneath the waves and birds, crabs and rats on land. The water here is truly spectacular with some of the best visibility we’ve experienced and some of the most beautiful coral we’ve seen. What’s even better is we’re here with our friends from @svdelos and @WEsail

If you're new here, Harbors Unknown is the story of two dreamers, Kristin & Fabio Potenti, & our dog Yoda. We're a small family living aboard our catamaran, SV Wanderlust, sailing to Harbors Unknown. Exploring the world, connecting with people and places through the local cuisine, and showing how great food can be cooked on a boat with limited space and resources. Seeking to balance the desire to explore and travel to beautiful, remote locations while leaving no footprint, minimizing the Hawthorne effect of the observers who change the environment she or he observes.

We hope to inspire people and showcase the possibility of living an alternative lifestyle that provides freedom and fulfillment, all while keeping it real. Sharing the trials and tribulations of living off-grid, acknowledging the discomfort of detoxing from the modern world, finding pleasure in the subtleties of nature and joy in simplicity. Attempting to understand what makes the world tick and tock but also trying to gain a deeper comprehension of ourselves and identify what will satisfy that hunger for further exploration, for purpose. We have set off on our voyage sailing around the world! Subscribe now to join our sailing adventure.
