For the past four years I've lived on sailboats in different countries and in different ways. I lived on a 26ft wooden boat in Canada while finishing up university, on a 120ft tall ship in the Mediterranean for a summer job, in a boatyard in Switzerland to build a dream boat with my husband, and now I live with my husband on our 28ft boat in the Mediterranean. Every week I make a new video about our adventures, but I thought I'd make this extra film about what boat life is like in ALL it's different stages. There are so many ways to live on a boat... so which one of them seems the best to you?? And is living on a sailboat your dream lifestyle? These videos are made possible by you.

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.
