This book is written by a young couple who escaped to sea with very little experience and 11 years later are still living on board in the South Pacific. This edition covers the first year of their life on board and aims to inspire other “would-be” cruisers, plus keep them from making the same mistakes as the authors did!

Calling themselves “green cruisers”, Austrian liveaboards Birgit Hackl and Christian Feldbauer,set out with their cat to see the world, starting in the Mediterranean and crossing the Atlantic to the Caribbean and then to the destination of their dreams: the South Pacific.

It is a story that encourages the readers to simply dare to take the plunge, go out and live their dreams!

Birgit and Christian rely only on alternative energy sources and try to minimize the impact they have on the environment. They not only assist local communities where they cruise, but also try to give back to the generous cruiser community by sharing their experiences and knowledge learnt via their blog.
