Looking back on the previous year is always a lot of fun, and it’s interesting to see everything laid out in a one year period. I get to see what I did and didn’t do, reflect on everything, etc. So, I am happy to publish my 2019 year in review.
I almost didn't put this together this year, but I realized that it's nice to write this each year so that I have a nice memory to look back at later.
2019 was a super interesting year.
We sailed to the Bahamas, bought a van for hurricane season and explored the U.S., then sailed back to the Bahamas (which is where we are now).
We saw beautiful mountains, oceans, beaches, deserts, and everything in between.
2019 was a wonderful year full of travel and great memories. It had its ups and downs, just like for any person, but overall it was an amazing year and I'm grateful for the life that I get to live.
We're really loving how life is currently going too. We love having our sailboat as it's a very exciting way to travel, and we also love having our van so that we can still do all of the land travel that we love.

Here's what we did in 2019:
January – The Florida Keys and Bahamas
2019 started by sailing the Florida Keys to the Bahamas. It was the first time we had left the U.S. with our sailboat.
It was a crazy month because we were doing something brand new to us – bringing our dogs by boat to another country. Bahamas is relatively easy to do this with, though, so it went smoothly!
There was quite a bad storm that arrived right after we sailed to Bimini, Bahamas, so we were “stuck” there for a while. It was a nice spot, though, so we definitely did not complain! [Read more…]
