Welcome! Thanks for visiting our site!
Here is a brief introduction to who we are. We are Kevin and Jeannine, a Canadian couple who have escaped the rat race and are pursuing our dreams of travel and adventure around the world. We met through the sport of biathlon (cross-country skiing and shooting) and got married in 2009.
Kevin has a military engineering background, and Jeannine has a high school teaching background. We both switched careers in 2014 to become Royal Canadian Mounted Police officers. During our vacations from work, we did some travel, and also learned how to sail. We then planned some group "bareboat" sailing charters with friends, renting sailing catamarans to cruise in tropical places and spent volunteer years as crewmembers of the Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue.
Throughout our working careers we spent less than we earned and pursued financial independence, leading us to "retire" from full-time work at the end of 2019, transitioning to part time work in our old careers whenever we aren't travelling.
Our long-term travels began in April 2021, when we left Canada and started cruising on a sailing catamaran in French Polynesia and Fiji, followed by a 53 foot monohull in Fiji. Then, in August 2022 we departed England in a J133 sailboat for our "slow delivery" via western Europe and the Caribbean, with New Jersey, USA as our ultimate destination, where we arrived in April 2023.
Now we are in Southeast Asia aboard a new McConaghy 55 performance cruising catamaran. This season we plan to explore Indonesia, stop in Malaysia, and then go to Thailand!
