Keeping the Salty Life Going

We Chose the Salty Life and have committed to it wholeheartedly. But now we need to keep it going. This comes with its challenges.

We got married, sold up our belongings, sold our car and moved on to our sailboat… our tiny floating home. That was three years ago now.

From making money to doing good to keeping our marriage solid, this is a bit about how we keep this salty existence going. We are glass half full type people and we are dreamers, but we want to share some of the realities too.

We hope you can get inspired to take on your own salty adventure or citizen science project for our planet by following along how we keep this salty lifestyle afloat.
