BE INSPIRED, GET MOTIVATED AND COME ALONG FOR THE RIDE
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.

Fifteen years of blogging
We have been blogging and videoing since 2002. With over 500 blog entries and 150 videos on youtube, we have quite a bit of knowledge and sailing experience, though we're always learning. Check out our blog for more info or take a look at our map for a taster. Older entries cover Europe and the Caribbean, newer entries from the Red Sea to the east, these are just a few of our posts.
