For us, time is the key for freedom. So what do we need to do to get more time?
We decided to downshift our lives and get more time to live life as we want. Since we already had a sailboat and we both love adventures, the choice on what we would do was easy. Go sailing. To achieve greater freedom we needed to save a lot of money and make certain sacrifices. Before we left Sweden, we sold almost everything we owned, we became liveaboards for more than a year prior to departure to cut the monthly expenses and we were saving as much as we could in our living habits.
Sailing means both a form of traveling and a way of living for us. RAN is our home but also our means of transportation and she can take us almost everywhere we want in the world. Sailing for us is about “simple living” and “downshifting” your life. We travel on water with the help of the wind and the sun gives us electricity through our solar panels. Simple and eco-friendly. When we are sailing we have to be aware of the water usage, garbage recycling, energy loading and food supplies.
The adventure in sailing is something that drive us. We want to sail to remote places and explore untouched nature and wild animals.
We hope to inspire others by our choice of living. To explore the world by sailing or in another way and make time to live your life as you want. Because it is possible!
