#277 This production is free to all thanks to people like you on Patreon (
This is boat life and we're getting our life on the road again and hitting the waves. After some truly Top Gun piloting from yours truly to escape the marina, we're on our way to the next of the beautiful Azores Islands, Faial. As usual the wind is in our face and slow when we're sailing, and blowing hardest when we're on land. Boat life hey, but we've made it to the sailors paradise at Horta and we're ready to get stuck in.
Thanks once again to those really helpful suggestions about dealing with seasickness and hey, if there's something you wanna see more of or hear more about our sailing lives, leave some comments below. And if you sailors out there have been to Horta, show us your dock painting!

    • Hey Elayna, I never knew I suffered with seasickness before until I started getting the ferry every day from Manly to the city in Sydney. I’d get off and feel like I was still riding massive waves up and down for about 2 hours afterwards, but internally just in my head. I really empathise with you it’s absolute horrible and really disorientating, and I’d get it every single day. And the more I worried if I was going to get it again or not, the more it happened! The only thing I found that worked for me wasn’t any devices or drinks or any external thing at all really, it was just not thinking about it, totally distracting myself. And I don’t mean purposely distracting myself with music or whatever (because that would create more anxiety), I mean literally acting as if I didn’t suffer with it at all, from getting on, the journey and getting off. And then it went! Never had it since. Hope you find something that works for you! X

  • Sure relief for seasickness is Motionease. Check it out here Do let me know how it works out with you. I've been using it for years and is 100 percent effective. . "Many motion sickness products need to be taken with a full glass of water. Taking pills while traveling can be a real hassle, especially if children are involved. However, all-natural Motioneaze is easy to apply topically behind each ear and works fast no matter how you’re traveling."

  • Absolutely love your channel, and it really enables me to take a break from reality and indulge in a fantastical boat life - of course with its ups and downs! One thing I think you could potentially think about more is Lenny's exposure on the channel. It's not possible to ask him if he's okay with being exposed to hundreds of thousands of people - even millions, as he's so young. I just know that if it was me I wouldn't have wanted so much material of me online from when I was young. He is a funny, sweet guy we love to watch, and maybe that's exactly why we shouldn't see him so much. Many influencers show only the back and body of their children, and I think that's a good middle ground maybe. But of course, this is up to you to decide what you think is best as parents :)

  • I'm part of the "truther" community and a good way to start deprograming the false history that we were taught is to start with old architecture and look at paintings and photos of incredible old buildings that were knocked down in order to destroy history or propagate a narrative. A great place to start as the world's Fair buildings in Chicago.

  • Yoly is very sensitive to motion sickness as well and has found good results with ginger as others have mentioned. She tried a ginger gum at first and while it worked, the ginger component was quickly depleted and she was left with just gum. Adding more gum was just an exercise in financial waste. She then switched to a readily available ginger candy that has a lot of ginger (and strong flavor) and each piece lasts for a considerable time. This has proven extremely successful now for many years and we purchase it on Amazon @

  • I would love to see and hear more about your experiences with climate change. Is there something that has been drastically changed in those years that you have traveled? Do you see a lot of trash in the ocean, when you are crossing, or have you noticed something else that is scary and we should pay attention more. Have you changed something about how you travel because of climate change? I would love to hear, not only from you of course but from all travel influencers how they have noticed climate change.

I hope you can do this for a long time to come, and yet it will end once Lenny has to go to school. It continues to go well greeting you from, Kees Koks from the Netherlands.

  • About Eleina's thoughts: Don't listen to us, you do you! It's your life, your experiences and we enjoy that you just share a little bit with us. I just want to share a personal though with you: I imagine (don't know for sure because i don't know how to sail) that sailing, as life, as being in a relationship or rising a child is a team effort. Maybe you could put a little bit of emphasis in that aspect. In times of hate and the inhability to listen or understand each other, a little bit of team effort is refreshing and needed... but who am I to give an opinion or tell you what to do? Cheers guys!

  • I absolutely love your videos and have been watching for over two years now. I love how candid they feel and have really given me the desire to sail (something I had never even considered before). The one I don't like so much about is the sponsorship deals you do with audible. As you probably know, audible is owned by amazon. I know you guys are trying to do your part for the climate crisis and I find that supporting amazon in whatever shape (sponsorship deals, buying products from them, showing their products to your audience...) just promotes excessive consumerism which is destroying our planet because Amazon is really just about buying things you don't really need, not getting informed on where they come from, how they were made, and who they were made by and expecting to recieve them super fast. Besides that though, keep doing what you are doing :)))
