For a while we promised a comprehensive video that explains our whole story. Story of how did we get to where we are now: living aboard our trimaran “Poly”, crossing oceans, and exploring the World with our kids, as a family. Story of how did we find, purchase, and prepare the boat and ourselves for this adventure of our lives. Ultimately, a story of how all this unusual setting is becoming more and more healthy and natural for us and the kids mentally, emotionally, and physically. The story that we really care to share with you.
Thank you kindly for staying tuned for the last 6 months since we opened our chanel. Thank you kindly for all the comments, ideas, and engaging discussion. And lastly, thank you kindly for the growing support of our video production on Patreon. It is not easy to maintain a sailboat, work normal jobs, raise kids, and edit videos, while still smiling and enjoying all of it. So, yes, your support means a lot to us and does make a difference.

PS. Editing this one made me cry. I was so moved looking at the kids 1,2,3,4 years ago. I was moved looking at all the Herculean work Ania and I did to make our dream a reality. I was moved when I noticed how much we changed and the kind of inner Herculean work we accomplished in the last few years. All of this only becomes that much sweeter if we manage to inspire a few people to follow what they feel deepest and dearest in their hearts. All this became that much more obvious as the right life choice when I thought of an alternative of missing most of this time in my kids’ childhood, when they change so incredibly fast and there is no money or power in the World that can replay this time once we miss it.
Thank you for staying with us.

What is Patreon and how you can support us:
Adventures of Ania and Bartek with two little kids sailing across oceans on a 15 meter trimaran as a way of promoting alternative way of life off the grid. In 2014 we managed to materialize our dreams and traded a land based home in Poland for a permanent life on the ocean aboard our dearest new home – sailboat “Poly”.
For us sailing is a way of free life in sync and harmony with nature and each other. It’s a way of experiencing life, people, and places, entirely on our own terms. For many years it was just a dream, but we followed it and it came true. We are here and now, no longer chasing the dream.
We’d like to share it with you so that you can follow your dreams, too. Follow us to see all the amazing, interesting, crazy, scary, and funny people, places and situations that we experience and learn from.
Welcome to our family life unplugged.
Ania, Bartek, Kuba and Julian
