A “must-follow” podcast!

Nick and Terysa are great fun! We have followed their adventures since the start. They are honest about the challenges of travelling the world by sailboat...sharing the highs and lows...all the while still keeping a positive outlook! They make me laugh...they inspire. I highly recommend following their podcast!
