I’m Martina and my boat is Carina of Devon. I live aboard Carina with my husband and our two daughters. This blog is about our adventures aboard our boat, our observations of life, my (and sometimes Julian’s) thoughts about culture, nature, home schooling, parenting and life in general. In 2011, Julian and I decided to quit our jobs, sell our house in Cambridgeshire and buy a boat to live on. We found the boat later that year and moved aboard in spring 2012. In the past three years we’ve cruised in England, Ireland, France, Spain, Portugal and Morocco.
