(scroll down for list of stores)
The Series: No one expected these thirty-something professionals to give up their successful careers to pilot their own small boat around the world, especially because they started with almost no boating experience. Instead of the expected sailboat, they chose a 43 foot trawler powerboat, which many believed was incapable of crossing oceans. Most people expected them to fail. But they surprised the skeptics when they successfully circumnavigated the globe in two years, visiting 110 places along the way in thirty-four countries.
Part 1 of The Unexpected Circumnavigation follows Christi and Eric daily as they travel to eighteen exotic South Pacific islands that few people ever see. You will experience the local food and cultures, participate in island tours and adventure activities (including going to the rim of an active volcano), and feel what it is like to be on long sea passages. Learn about the challenges, rewards, and the surprises that come with both traveling and boating. Click here for more info, reviews and excerpts.
Part 2 of The Unexpected Circumnavigation journals Christi and Eric’s travels to 21 fascinating destinations, ranging from popular to remote. You will feel what it is like to be on long sea passages, experience the local food and cultures and participate in unique tours and adventures, including SCUBA, exotic animals, nature’s 600 foot tall “secret rooms” & villages untouched by modernization. Learn about the challenges, rewards, and surprises that come with both traveling and boating. Click here for more info, reviews and excerpts.
Both books are a fun and easy read that boaters and non-boaters alike will enjoy.
