    Although we are not liveaboards! we keep our boat in the Netherlands, cruise quite extensively over there and up and down the coast whenever we get the chance, will be over there from 08 Aug until 07 Sept.

    We live on our boat a Jeanneau SO47 when we are in Europe but are mainly based in the Middle East where we manage to sail other peoples boats most of the time.

    Our blog aims to keep friends and family informed of our sailing and other exploits but seems to have found favour with others interested in expat life.

    It's really interesting, and frequently inspiring, reading these blogs. But I have to say that I, as someone who aspires to living abord and cruising, would really rerally like to know how everyone manages to make a living at the same time as living this way !

    Just in case any of you chaps happens across the R Blackwater, you might want to duck into a marina until we pass...

    We do temporary work back in the UK as management consultants and interim managers. Sometimes this gets in the way, as it very seriously has this year. But it has broadly enabled us to spend four to six months not working every year for the last eight (and sometimes spend nine months travelling!) That level of financial insecurity is not for everyone: that's why so many cruisers are actually pensioners. People who genuinely earn a decent (or even subsistence) living as they go (whether as carpenters, diving instructors, writers etc) are rare.

    We are currently on the eastern seaboard of the USA. Set off nine years ago from Europe and have made our way, slowly around the Caribbean.

    Posting has become a little intermittent as we find internet access far harder to get in the USA than it was in Central America, go figure!
