    My husband and I started watching your channel a couple years ago. He and I had been married 25 years and kiddos are out of house. So we dreamed of doing what you guys are doing. Back last October I lost my husband to covid. The past 5 months I have been trying to figure out my future without the love of my life. I am still going to buy a cat and sail. You have inspired me to keep going forward. Now I just have to learn to sail....keep the videos coming.

    I've got a story, mate. Back in 1988, a good friend introduced me to a co-worker who wanted to learn about skydiving. Her name was, La Faye. She was a pretty girl and seemed like the adventurous type, so I was more than happy to help. We soon planned a trip to the old Free Fall Ranch in Warm Springs, where she could take an observation flight to see what it was all about.
    She had to wear a parachute for the ride, because an observer seat is really nothing more than a seat-belt bolted to the floor, right next to the door. Me and two other jumpers squeezed into the small Cessna with her, and we rattled off down the runway. As we climbed in slow circles up through the stifling summer heat, La Faye seemed happy as a clam, scrunched in between us, the door and the pilot.
    At 7,500 ft. the plane leveled off and the pilot called, “Jump run!”. He popped the door open and a loud rush of cool air filled the cabin. The other two jumpers and I quickly climbed out over our observer’s lap and got into position. We clung there, outside of the plane, for just a few seconds before dropping away to the earth below.
    But it was in this moment that I suddenly saw La Faye in a new way. Sitting there in the open door of that little plane, her hair blowing in the wind, I could see that she was fearless. She looked at us with a child-like joy in her eyes. I could see that she understood why we did this and that she wanted to do it, too. She was smart and beautiful and ready to live a life full of adventures. She was something special.
    Not many men can pinpoint the exact moment when they fell in love with their wife, but I can. It was 34 years ago in the skies over Warm Springs. It was the day that I literally fell for my wife.

      This show practically ignited my love of the ocean even tho I had little interest 🌊🌊😍😍😍
      It's a story about a family living in and exploring the ocean as well as finding mythical mysteries (which probably aren't real). They do all of this on a big submarine.

    I met someone in 1987 at university. She was the most amazing woman I’d ever met. Circumstances meant that we were not meant to be together for almost three decades. We’ve been married now for six years. She is still the most amazing woman I’ve ever met.

      My comment belongs here with Paul's story.
      Riley, some people think I rushed the whole relationship and proposed on our third date. But what most people don't know is that it was a relationship that started on pause and was not allowed to start for a long, long time. I was in love at first sight, but she was sixteen and I was nineteen and living fifty miles away in college. We were both in relationships. For a long time, it was a secret that only I knew about. She never knew how I felt about her. Ten years later, I took her on our first date. I proposed three weeks after that. People think I rushed, but I think I was very patient. Our 30th anniversary will be this year. It has been a dream come true. I have really enjoyed watching your two evolve into three and now four. This was a particularly touching episode. Thank you Elayna and Riley.

    Brilliant video as always but also it makes me realize that when you have someone that loves and supports you anything possible. My wife's listened to me banging on about you guys for the past 5 or 6 years in which time I've bought a FP 40ft and learned to sail round NZ with the wife joining in but tolerating my obsession. Now,, with her, we plan to sell up everything and buy a catamaran in Europe and spend 2 or 3 years seeing as much of the world as possible. Many thanks to you guys for the inspiration.

    My most memorable moments were when my Boyfriend made a sign . he carved out the word "broken" in a piece of wood and handmade an arrow, broke it in half and attached it onto the sign below the word "arrow". he also stood outside collecting rainwater into a decanter, sealed it shut . He hung up the sign above our bed and got me to close my eyes & sit on the bed. he handed me the decanter while telling me he loved me so very much. I opened my eyes and seen the sign & knew what the decanter had in it. My favorite song was "broken arrow" by Rod Stewart. tears a came!! The other time a few months later , i came home from my nursing job and my youngest, who was 3 at the time took my hand and led me into the living room to sit down. All 3 of my young children came into the room one by one all dressed up,the 2 girls in dresses with ponytails and my son in a little suit . they knelt down side by side in front of me and each gave me a flower. then my Boyfriend came in dressed in a suit and knelt down and they all asked me to marry daddy and he asked me to marry him. We did not ever get married, but a few years later we did walk around the dining room table because the kids seen it in a movie and that meant we were married. We broke up years later when i had cancer. its ok, we are good friends. He has a longtime girlfriend whos great and im looking for that someone that wants to explore the oceans and lands around the world like you guys. maybe someday i will find someone, or maybe it will be just me exploring. till then I love your Love, I love watching your beautiful family grow and experience life and the wonders it has to offer. PS.. i still have my sign and my bottle of rain and every once in a while my ex asks me if i still have it ;)

    I've been watching you from the start (always looking forward to the next video), before my wife passed away she would call you guys "my other family".......I guess to an extent that's true to a point since you've opened your lives to the world. Wishing you the best, always.

    GREAT STORY OF YOUR LAST 7 YEARS!! Being emotional is ok Riley:-) You seem to be an extraordinary guy, and showing your inner emotions to thousands of people is fantastic. Your better half is a tough cookie, making sure the family is one unit. Amazing. You desire to spend time together exploring the world in a 45 foot boat is really nice to follow. I wish you all the best in the future. You are one of the reason why my wife and I have invested in a trimaran and will slowly start our adventure this summer. Take care and always stay safe:-)

    I can't really say it was one moment. I met her and we got together like really quick from day 1. what was different was definitely me, because I had been in relationships with girls and had the tendency to do everything for my gal ( happy wife happy life right) but forgetting myself along the way so this time it was more like: I love you. and if you wanna be together with my, here are my corpses in the basement, my bad habits and everything. you still wanna be together meet me halfway.
    and since then we've been together but we rocked pretty hard times like cancer, depression which went on for years and throughout this hard times we kept on talking deeply with each other made sure to communicate open and directly with each other and that's probably the reason we are still together for 5 years and living in a one room apartment of 25 squaremeters XD

    The last love of my life came along in Orlando, Fla. We met at a convenience store as two new hires learning the business and each other. We had only my motorcycle between us and no days off together. She rigged it with the manager for us to have a Saturday off together. After my two days off, she told me we had one off together and asked. "What are we going to do?" She wasn't exactly shy! I suggested we do Disney World. She'd never been on a bike but whe was game. The first turn we took, she nearly put us in a ditch leaning the wrong way. In time she learned how to be a passenger (you have to steer together, unlike in a car) and came to love riding behind me, twisting her hand over my shoulder to signal she wanted to go faster. On a bike that didn't register speeds over 80 mph. Unaware of our true speed on a dark, lonely road, I had us up to 130! (As measured by her son following us on my other bike. Its speedo went up to 150 so he knew our speed when we didn't! We rode a lot of miles together between 1980 and 2010 before she passed away at the age of 82 in 2017. I still miss her terribly at times but we had a wonderful life together as man and wife. . .and best friends!

    My special moment, although not overly romantic, was when I got food poisoning on our sail boat. My partner was rubbing my back, pushing vomit down the sink with a fork, had a shit sleep, and was secretly a bit scared for my health. It’s in the moments that I am most vulnerable that I am thankful for how much of a team player my partner is. Expression of genuine empathy

    My husband and I have been married for almost 28 years. In that time there have been so many wonderful moments but I will post 3 of my absolute favorites 1 and 2 have to be the births of are wonderful daughters. 3 will always stick with me. I had accidentally became pregnant with are first only a few weeks after meeting my husband. I was afraid that I would be alone raising a child but we went to the mountains of Colorado USA to decide what we were going to do. After talking for what seemed to be forever we still hadn't came to a decision. So we go into the car and headed for home. My husband is a LEO and told me he needed to stop at the LEO'S uniform shop on the way home because he needed something. We parked and he told me he would be right back. So I sat worrying in the car when he came out with a bag. My door opened and he got down on one knee as he pulled a lg stuffed bear dressed as a law enforcement officer from the bag. I started to cry and he asked me to marry him. From that day on I have called him Teddy. Anyone that knows us for a bit of time will always ask why I call him Teddy when his name is James and I tell them the story of how he asked me to marry him and by the end I am always told how wonderfully romantic it is and how lucky I am to have found my bff, soul mate, and husband. After Almost 30 years of marriage I can say I wouldn't want to spend my life with any other person just my Teddy.

Two incredible parents, 2 great big brothers, an ex husband of 26 years who is still my best friend (we lost our son, hence the ex). But you help remind me to take every breath as a gift & enjoy it!

    very very cool...absolutely love this look back.. I think I've been watching right from the start... watched this relationship blossom and the business decisions you have made along the way have been very smart..many people could take a leaf out of your book(s) called "we've got this.. and back yourself".. not enough people stepping out of their comfort zone and just trying something. Jenny and I did with a roadhouse which was supposed to be 2 years and ended up 22 years..24/7 .. you see everyside of your partner/wife/hubby... and here we are 37 years and still mighty good mates.. well done..

    Loved this episode- so sweet. Asked my husband the question from the end and it's not surprising that some of our fav moments are connected to travel.

    Great episode you two! What a life! Really amazing having you taking is back to the beginning. The good, the bad, the ugly,.... and the funny. Makes me want to rewatch some of those wonderful memories, and of course check out some of the adventure I missed.
    Great job! So glad you both met and shared your sailing life with the rest of us. Lots of fun and adventure. So wish I could of made it down to the Vagabonde caravan in Bahamas! Going to be so much fun.
    Thank you both!

    What a great trip down memory lane! Having been watching the channel since the beginning, this was very nostalgic. Your Bahama trips were the reason I decided to vacation there, and it was one of the best trips of my life! Thank you both for sharing your experiences with all of us! If not for you two, I'd never get to see most of these places.

    I've been watching since 2017 and it's been amazing to watch your family grow as I grow up myself. I remember it was shortly after my 16th birthday when one of my friends pointed me towards your videos because they knew I was interested in travel. I turn 21 this year and will be visiting my 6th country! So glad to see you all thriving, even with all of the last minute changes related to Vietnam and La Vaga 3.0. Give the little ones some hugs from all your viewers!

    Awww, literally beamed ear to ear watching this! I only discovered you guys in 2020 but have dipped into the archives many times since then, I loved the monohull trip from Panama to NZ and was it French Polynesia(?) the most I think though! It's so cool to see it all summed up in this video as now I've got even more bits to head back and re-watch. Your commitment to this lifestyle + channel is really inspiring. My partner and I are a couple of grubby vanlifers who just want to keep on travelling as long as we can! X

    Our biggest achievement has been travelling around Australia in our 4wd , the biggest learning curve for us as individuals and as a couple but the best decision we ever made ✨

    I was having a little bit of chest pain, and my boss took me to the ER "just in case". It went away the second I got there, but they made me stay. I didnt call my wife, because nobody was worried, but she found out and came up there. She was pretty pissed. After another few hours I got a blood test back that showed I HAD a heart attack. I was told that no, I wasnt going home. I was going in for heart surgery in 2 hours, and did I want to see a person of faith to speak to?
    I guess that night I realized how much I loved her and how much I wanted to stick around. I had never been so close to that void before and it scared the shit out of me.
    There have been a million more things since that have brought us closer together, but that was the big one for me.
    I was 33.

    I have no idea when I first started watching, but I've been along for most of the ride :) This vid was such a great recap for you guys (most importantly) and the channel viewers! Makes me think back to all the different parts of the world I've watched episodes from during downtime :)
    Reading through the comments, it's incredible the audience you've engaged, how many people you inspire, and lives you've crept into :)
    Long may it continue SLV ❤

    I worked at the same company as my wife for 4+ years before I finally noticed she was flirting. 3+ years later I proposed and she didn’t actually say yes, but rather “ok”. 22 years after that and here we are still having fun and now ready to start some new adventures in the next year or so. It’s been great following you guys through the years!

    Here’s why this video is so amazing to watch (at least for me); it also traces our own journey in this sailing life. Watching this video also gave us reminders of when, during your videos, we got super sucked in, Fallon in love with the lifestyle, and then embarking on our own journey to buy our sailboat.
    Also hat tip on the animations! Love them 😛

    I found your channel when I had just had a daughter. She’s 5 now. My wife and I run a small business and Covid was a huge challenge. We have been able to stay open but it was tough. The struggle has definitely grown us and brought us closer. She is amazing. I love her so deeply. We also had our second baby during the pandemic. He’s 6 months. All the time watching you guys was crazy inspiring. If you can sail the world with 2 kids, we can get through this too. Congratulations on all you’ve been through the love, the life and the family you’ve made. Blessings on your journey. Thanks for bringing us along.

    Hey there :) I came late to the party and have been watching you now for about 6 months and caught up with all your videos and life!!. Your children are absolutely beautiful! Mine grew up in the rock and roll of world touring, taking them all over the world to find their dad! Amazing times. Take care of each other always and be friends. I'll keep following you as this world right now is so uncertain and your videos are a blessed relief from all the bad news happening. Safe sailing and may the winds of love follow you always.

    Thanks for sharing your romance!
    My wife and I have had many romantic and scary moments that have brought us closer over our 36 year marriage. It seems like you can’t ever plan the moments that bring you closer. Often as not they are moments you think you might lose one another and those are the times you can’t imagine life without the other. It took me 20 years before I appreciated the things my wife did that I thought were stupid. When Elayna is acting all goofy you might want to appreciate that most of us loose that ability when life has hit us in the face for too long. Someone once said, you like people for the things you have in common, but you love them for their differences. Happy sailing!
