Dearest Friends, 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.
It is really special for us because it is about the beginning of this journey, when we left our house in Poland and made our trimaran into our new home under sail with two little kids (one of them newborn). After 4 years and 35 000 miles we wouldn’t exchange our life for anything in the world! We are so grateful and at the same time so proud, because it took and it still does take us everyday a lot of work, energy, money, and creativity! All these pictures and videos you regularly see on our page are true and these are our usual views right out of the window. Very often breathtaking! But at the same time life aboard is really intense, demanding, and requires taking full responsibility everyday … and night, 24/7! No exceptions. Nevertheless we are absolutely in love with it and never regret decision we made. Experiencing all the intense fullness of life, adventures, true emotions, amazing people we meet on our way, undisturbed nature, animals everyday assure us this life is completely ours!
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. Much love, Ania, Bartek, Kuba & Julian aboard s/y Poly 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.
Ania and Bartek
