How to Make The CRAZY LEAP Into an ALTERNATIVE LIFESTYLE (On a Budget!) | Ep 10 Sailing Pivo

In this video, we talk about how to pursue an alternative lifestyle, and what to expect as you get closer to your dream. We experienced lots of ups and downs, but that's just part of what you should expect when you choose to live a life alternative to everyone else. Three weeks until goodbye to our nine to five jobs!

Come join as we learn to sail and have new experiences on our 1990 Whiting 40. We are a brand new sailing couple, and have fallen in love with the sport. Many sailing lessons have been learned so far as we learn how to become sailors. Our first mate, Pivo, keeps us out of trouble and is also learning along the way.

We are starting our voyage in New Zealand where we have been living for the last 4 years. Being from the mountains of Colorado, we are going zero to cruising! Our first sail was with the sailing school, Great Escape, up in Opua in northern New Zealand (home the 2021 America's Cup). We hope our lessons from a beginner sailor will help you also as we set out on a multi-year adventure sailing around the world.

We hope to become a fulltime sailing / cruising family soon, as we love the sailing lifestyle so much! We love traveling, meeting new people, and seeing the world. We hope you come along for the adventure!
