How to land a crewing job at sea

How to land a crewing job at sea

My article was originally published on Meet Plan Go! As I knock, knock, knocked on the window of a sleek catamaran with a shiny teak deck, I wondered, is this appropriate behavior? Had I been visiting a house, I would have knocked on the front door, but climbing aboard seemed intrusive. No one emerged from below deck. […]

Held hostage in Fiji!

Held hostage in Fiji!

I would probably get slapped if I were to say I was annoyed that we got stuck in Fiji the past week, as there are much worse places to be forced to be against your will! Fiji is great, but I wanted to be in Vanuatu by now! In my last post Help Me Save […]

Scuba Diving Savusavu, Fiji

Scuba Diving Savusavu, Fiji

I have always heard that Fiji is a great place for scuba diving but I had done zero research about the islands prior to arriving. Traveling without a guidebook or map, I honestly had no idea what island I was on as I roamed the streets of downtown Savusavu. As luck would have it, we […]

Sailing Ocean Passage: Tonga to Fiji

Sailing Ocean Passage: Tonga to Fiji

After our crewing experience aboard Wonderland, we were unsure if this new found crewing/yachtie life was for us. We decided to take a crewing offer if it fell in our laps as a means to save money; otherwise, we would be fine with flying to Fiji. Our first day on land in Tonga, we were […]

Bula Bula from Fiji

Bula Bula from Fiji

It took us seven days to reach Savusavu, Fiji … three of which were spent anchored at the Niuas, a group of three of Tonga’s most remote islands. While I was at sea a draft of a post strangely published itself in it’s unfinished form. Sorry for any confusion, I will explain more about the volunteer work I […]
