A VERY EMOTIONAL OCEAN CROSSING

#294 When you spend so much time together in such close quarters, you really notice when they're missing. Riley wasn't feeling himself during the last few months of Europe so it was great that he could relax with all the help on board. It certainly means less worrying for me when I can't be there. I'm sure he was missing my bread baking skills on this trip - haha!

I'm a mountain guy....can live off the land but the past year or so my heart calls to the water. We are making a 3 year plan to go....even now it feels more right than ever.

  • Without a doubt, you've led a remarkable life and it's been so fun to be part of your adventure. But you have chased your dreams and now I feel like you are now feeling bound by them. You don't owe us, your channel, or your dreams anything-- live your lives, start a new landslide adventure watching your kids grow with family and friends nearby if you want. The main thing is to make sure you are listening to yourselves and close friends/family. Blessings.

I skipper a few times a year monohulls/trimarans (one day would love to skipper a Cat) from 17 to 55 feet in Med, Atlantic and Sweden but would love one day to cross an ocean or globe and practice. Also thanks for the honest sharing of feelings both up and down in this digital everything looks perfect status-stress world. Stay safe. Doug Sweden/Portugal

That is, if the powers to be have anything to say about it, which they do because they are running all of it. Love what you guys are doing, keep up the great videos and content and be safe.

  • Riley, Thanks for this honest sharing thoughts episode! Yes, life may be harder for others but everybody has also its own challenges to face. Regarding your situation, it looks like that you're arriving (Elayna and you) at the end of an era, the sailing family one. It is sot sad, it is just another page of life which is just about to start! I don't think that you were both thinking to still be on la vagabonde in 10 years. You are now probably doing some planning on a "whenever it will be possible" return to Australia and settling down somewhere. You''ll probably create a business around sailing (It's obvious for all of us that you deeply love off shore sailing) and Elayna another one in you future hometown, where your kids will go to school... Life is just going one... Best!

  • My jaw dropt on the floor.... Europe, the Netherlands are my home. We are all contained in our homes for over a year now. Yes we all would like to take trips... But we are not allowed. Do NOT travel unless you have to for work etc etc. And you are taking a road trip true 4 countries just to see snow !!!!! Unbelievable. If you sail into Australia now, you have to be in a quarantine hotel for 2 weeks. Why don't you take care of our countries the same way or give a least a good example. Just 6 more months and most of Europe have got their vaccinations and we can ALL travel again. What a selfish thing to do. We want to see the snow she says.... 😔

  • That’s the most vulnerable I think I’ve seen Riley. What a wonderful example of authenticity. This will help others, myself included, to open up and be more honest. These are very uncertain times and I was just talking with someone about it and I said at this point, the worst thing is the not knowing and not being able to plan ahead. It’s like living in a fog and you can only see what’s right in front of you and you have to have faith to keep putting one foot in front of the other. There’s so much more to it and it’s wearing on everyone. Sending love and hoping the clouds part and things flow into place for you all.

Another one..up the eastern seaboard to the st Lawrence river then down into the Great Lakes. Just trillions of nautical miles. Relaxing in the Caribbean works too.

  • I think that Riles and Elay are a great example of “living in the moment.” They do plan things, especially with Lenny and the new one on the way, but even so, they don’t just let life “happen to them.” By being out there and taking chances, always without fretting about the consequences, they make life work for them! Many people believe that being spontaneous like this is somehow a “bad” thing, the irresponsible way, etc; but if you have been watching the two of them grow and learn together over the years, as I have, what we are seeing is “life unfolding” if you will, before them, in an almost magical way. Some will disagree, vehemently even, that “not everyone can do what they are doing.” This May be so in the strictest terms (living on a catamaran, traveling the world and SUPPORTING themselves doing it, by they way). But maybe another job that you wanted, that gives you more freedom and pays better, to travel in a boat on weekends and vacations, etc. However, look at anyone that is living their dream, whatever that may be. It may not be this life full time, but by being spontaneous and “in the moment” things pop up that would not have otherwise. That’s what I believe, anyway!

  • This was a beautiful and very well done video to say the least... I am sorry that you guys are going through such hard times... Whether other people are going through harder times or not it doesn't make what you're going through any less difficult to you... in other words just because some people may have it worse doesn't disqualify you from feeling the way you do... have you guys ever thought maybe changing up the way you do videos and doing sort of part land and raising kids in a home videos and then some on the sea videos? I'm sure you thought of that and I know that making a change like that Kenzie a little worrisome because you think you will lose people but the thing is is that you will gain new people and you might lose a few but I think that a lot of people are so invested in you and your family that I don't think you would lose that much hey.. I pray that you guys can get back to Australia... I don't know why they won't allow you to just go into quarantine for a couple weeks... This whole damn thing is so frustrating because covid is not at all what they say it is... So what makes it scary is what the true agenda is really about but the world has been through some very trying times before and here we go again it's just been a while but we will get through this... God bless you and your family

  • So, so glad you decided not to travel alone, Riles! Two better travel mates you could not ask for, too. Experienced, good natured and most of all, well known to you “in the trenches” (I’m a landlubber, whaddya want?😆) where it counts! Most of all, you’re all having FUN! Also happy for Elayna, with her travel mates and we know how worried she would have been (but willing to let you go, if you had insisted, I think(?). Always a great pleasure watching your adventures and, frankly, the personal growth that you and Elay have gone through over the years. Of course, watching Lenny grow up is tons of fun! I think he’ll be a wunnerful big brother, too. Oh, he’ll have his moments; don’t all big brothers and sisters when a new one arrives? I should know; I was the “new one” all those many years ago! 🤪 Wishing you, always, “fair skies and following seas.” Did I get that one right? Hee hee! ⚓️

  • Many people are stuck on their boats and can’t even go ashore, or they can go on certain days and times and many even have men and women’s days to go to town so it isn’t helping couples that both need to go at the same time to help carry things. The people who come up with these “quarantines” aren’t taking anything into consideration no matter what the circumstances.. I’m glad it’s finally getting better and hopefully we’ve all learned they don’t have our best interests or even our lives in mind!

  • Nice way to put these two very different experiences together...excellent on all counts. Riley, difficult decisions coming your way with an additional baby. I say find a comfortable place to stay for a while and enjoy both land and sea. A place with lots of diversity to adventure on land and also the islands, that would be perfect for slowing down just a little.
