It's summer time, and the livin' is easy (Sailing La Vagabonde) Ep. 149

  • Publicado el 8 jul 2018
  • Welcome aboard La Vagabonde. Meanwhile, moored off the lush green island of Nevis. We've got plenty of exploring to do, a freezer full of fish to share with our neighbours, a volcano to climb and a whole lotta good vibes to give! Yo ho ho!

    I am new to this channel. I started binge watching a week ago after reading about their giving Greta T a lift to back Europe. As everybody has been saying, excellent channel!! I've stopped watching Netflix, Prime, etc because of this. I will soon after I am up to date with all the videos.

    I just started watching again after taking a short break, only to come back and find out you’re having a baby!!! Congratulations you two, you’ll be phenomenal parents! Also Elayna, it might be the pregnancy, but somehow (I didn’t think it was possible) you just get prettier every new video. Be careful guys! Riley, take care of yourself and most of all your precious cargo!! God bless you all!!!

    I can only imagine that now and then during long hours of editing and tedious tasks that you begin to think that one day you'll tire of this whole thing. But little moments like the one with those birds whipping around the boat... those are absolutely priceless and hopefully, those moments make it all worth it! Thanks for sharing!

    I love watching these "sailing around the world" playlist videos. That's how I found you guys a few years ago when you were still in the Med. I cannot explain how excited I'll be when I see "Lavaga Sailing Around the World S2 Episode 1" show up in my notifications. I'm enjoying the videos nowadays, but I do miss the adventure! I think we need these adventures as much as you all do. Looking forward to the future!

    Hey Riley, remember what it feels like to have to wait for the next season of Game of Thrones to start after the last season ends? That's how it feels after binge watching your guys' videos and then having to wait a whole week to see what happens next. "keep On, Sailin' On".

    Yo R & E... MUCH RESPECT ALWAYS. Another fabulous episode. It’s the 10,000 hour rule in full effect. You guys have mastered 3 different disciplines... Sailing, living the life of true bon vivants with joie de vivre and sustainability and a minimal cf,and filmmaking. And I know you’ll master the parenting adventure you’re embarking upon now. Godspeed, UM

    Elayna! thanks for the book recommendation. I immediately went to my local library website and put it on hold. very excited to read it. I am an adventurous 'older girl' who is inspired by anyone who dares to live the adventure, with all its ups and downs.
    congrats too on the fantastic news of a new little one. I am a Mom to two awesome adult sons who are living their own adventures of which I and their Dad are very proud.

    Those birds were awesome. I have a couple acre field I keep mowed and there's a bunch of birds (swallows I think) that fly around the mower. They're usually about a foot off the ground zooming around catching the bugs that fly up out of the grass as I mow. I love watching them.

    Hello Elayna. Watched your video! Great video! You guys are both amazing! You mentioned that you read Wild by Cheryl Strayed! Great book! I follow on Facebook and the following websites about 50+ PCT hikers! Not a hiker myself, but I follow them because of their personal “Journeys.” They actually walk kinda near the area where I live in the Palmdale area. When I go down San Franciscito cyn to head out to my boat in Ventura, I carry extra water with me to give to them as they’re walking northbound. There are PCT forums on Facebook and PCT Trail Angel forums too! The following are some great websites:,,, God bless you kids!

    Hello guys. It has been about 2 years since the last time I tuned into to watch an episode. Wow how times have changed. I used to watch you while deployed in Africa to keep my mind in a better place. My wife and kids are about 5 years out from moving onboard in Croatia. Thanks for making your adventure public. It is very motivating. Also in this video, Riley, thanks for the breath hold exercise tips. I have been slaying yellow tail and Mahi of the coast of Southern California. Take care
