Hello all new viewers! My name is Maya, and my husband is Aladino. Our home is Magic Carpet, a Vindo 32 sailing boat (which is actually only 28ft) that Aladino completely rebuilt following a devastating accident. We are now on a mission to sail around the world as slowly as possible. We'd like to take you with us. We post new videos every week, usually on the weekends. We fell in love with sailing and with each other. Sailing is what we'd be doing even if YouTube didn't exist. However, YouTube and Patreon have provided us with the unparalleled opportunity to make friends with other sailors from around the world. We love reading your comments, sending you handwritten letters in the post, and meeting you in person. If you'd like to connect with us, you can leave us a comment, send us an email, or contact us via Patreon at https://www.patreon.com/user?u=13249792. If you do decide to become a patreon, we'll personally thank you. It's you that make these videos possible –– literally. With love and excitement, Maya and Aladino

It was really awesome to spend some time with someone else who is following a similar(ish) life path. We found Simon to be a charming, kind, and inspirational person, and we really enjoyed the time we spent on Gabriola Island! This is definitely more of a real look at a Canadian winter than in the last episode though hahaha :)

Don't tell everyone... but yes, the west coast of Canada is a pretty special place! We don't often get snow in winter –– and though sunny days are rare, we do get a few of those. Aladino and I took advantage of the latest sunny days to go for a canoe trip! Although we're not on a sailboat here, canoes were actually what got me started in the world of boats. My parents used to take me out canoeing to the hundreds of little islands just off the coast of BC. You could explore this coast for a lifetime and still find something new every year. It's a pretty special place. These videos are made possible by you.

It was about a 24 hour crossing, with variable weather, including lightning at night! For the most part the crossing was nice though. Good downwind and decent speeds. Our Vindo32 did well! Join us in the next episode as we explore the city of Barcelona and make a few repairs to the boat.
