After sailing across the Atlantic, we decided to unwind and cherish some quality family time on the vibrant island of Martinique in the French Caribbean. We rented a car and embarked on a journey to discover the island's hidden gems.

Our first destination was the Balata Garden, a lush sanctuary offering breathtaking views and an array of unique flora. As we wandered through the park, enveloped by vibrant greenery, the air filled with the sweet fragrance of flowers, and the symphony of nature surrounded us, creating memories we'll treasure forever.

Eager for more adventures, we ventured to a nearby waterfall. Watching our little one, Adelyna, fearlessly wade into the chilly river brought smiles and laughter to all. These are the moments that make our journey truly unforgettable.

As our sails caught the breeze, we charted a course for Marie-Galante, a charming slice of paradise nestled in the French Caribbean Islands, just off the coast of Guadeloupe. This island, known for its sugar cane fields, greeted us with its pristine sandy beaches and endless horizons.

Our stay on Marie-Galante was brief, dictated by the whims of the weather. Nonetheless, it was a joy to reunite with our friends: Five Sailing and SummerTime 51, affectionately dubbed "The outremer gang."

Our journey continued as we set sail for Saint-Francois in Guadeloupe, a haven for kite surfing enthusiasts with its crystal-clear waters and endless stretches of coastline. The thrill of adventure beckoned as we embraced the boundless possibilities of the sea.

If there’s one place within Guadeloupe that is a true paradise with a capital P, Ilet du Gosier is it. It’s a Robinson Crusoe-style island that has swaying palm trees, small white sand beaches, amazingly clear turquoise and light green water, and Guadeloupe’s second oldest lighthouse dating back to 1929.

We could not resist to go for a walk and explore the light house.

While this video may lack the usual sailing content, we're eager to share this unique chapter of our journey with you. Despite the challenges of capturing every moment on camera, we believe in preserving these memories for the future. So, while we apologize for the deviation from our usual content, we hope you'll join us in savoring this special interlude.

About us:

We are a family of 3, Lithuanian and French couple currently living in Dubai UAE with our daughter born in 2020, with the dream of circumnavigating the globe with a catamaran sailing boat. In 2018 until we decided to focus on our project sailing TELLUS (Latin word meaning “Earth”).

We had the chance to visit and live in many beautiful countries with our previous jobs, that made us realize how fast the world is changing and how fast the life is going and there is no “later” than “now” for the project we have in mind. In early 2019 we took a one-week sailing courses that opened our eyes of new ways of travelling and changed our life style.

In June 2020, we decided to sell everything we own, house, car and lot of stuff that we do not need anymore so that we can buy a sailboat and go for an undetermined voyage around the globe.

We bought a catamaran Lagoon 450s delivered in France in July 2021.

We have been sailing from La Rochelle to Gibraltar, then exploring the Mediteraneean in 2022 Spain, France, Italy, Greece. In November 2022 we arrived in Canaries Island then sailed to Cape Verde. On 19 December 2022 we set sail to cross the Atlantic Ocean from Cape Verde to Martinique in the Caribbean. After 13 days and 4 hours. We have reached Martinique and currently sailing in the Caribbean islands. We have sailed over 10000 NM so far with our catamaran Tellus.

We decided to create this Sailing-Tellus website with the aim to build a community around sailing videos content creator.

We invite you to share with us our adventures of learning, exploring and making our project come to life. Through our videos we hope to inspire to explore, seek alternative options of living and to spread ocean awareness.
