In 2009, the Hemingway’s sold their belongings and moved onto a 350 square foot sailboat with 5 children. They thought they were going to live this way for one year but loved it so much they wandered through 25 countries, sailed almost 17,000 miles and added to the family with a baby born abroad in Israel. Check out www.sevensailors.us for their website and blog about their adventures. Jen and I agree with the Hemingway’s who state, “We just knew we wanted something different for our family….Life is sometimes lived on autopilot and before you know it, the kids are grown and you’re planning retirement. We wanted to take a break, spend some massive time together as a family, and get to know these kids in our life in a deeper way. We knew the nomad lifestyle couldn’t last forever, but we really wanted to show them that you can dream big, and with some planning, and goal setting, you can do what many people think is impossible.
