We left everything we owned to sail the world... with our cat !
Sailing around the world
Sailing Kerguelen is the story of a couple in their thirties who decide to leave everything behind to set off on a sailing adventure around the world. Fun fact: they had never set foot on a sailboat less than 2 years before leaving their jobs and apartments to move aboard full time.
Happy owners of our sailboat Kerguelen since July 2018, we are now in full preparation before setting sails!
Our blog shares our adventures, from our learning to sail to the stopovers and discoveries made along the way, through the preparation of our sailing adventure around the world and the fittings and works done on board.

In short, it deserves to be one of the island’s must-sees!
The PR6 Levada das 25 Fontes is one of the most popular hikes on Madeira Island. It follows a levada, that particular irrigation system, and plunges into the heart of the Rabaçal valley covered by the primary forest of Madeira. As a bonus, it offers a breathtaking view when you reach the source of the levada.
The PR11 Vereda dos Balcões hike is undeniably the easiest hike on Madeira Island. You will follow a levada, the irrigation system so specific to the island, for a very short distance before enjoying a breathtaking panorama.
