We are Jamie and Liz, two Brits sailing the wrong way round the world since 2006. At a time when accurate narratives are scarce, we believe everyone should have access to honest travel stories. With followtheboat there is no fakery or sensationalism. We show you what we see, warts and all.


Followtheboat is about providing inspiring content, to educate and entertain through our blog, YouTube channel and social media platforms. We uncover all aspects of long term travel and living on a boat (because it's not all beaches, bikinis and Bellinis). We reveal the reality of this lifestyle while helping wannabe travellers make that leap. We make videos, write blogs, contribute to magazines, always keeping it real.
