Embracing crazy with the Bizjak Family on SV Litha.

 

 

Hi!  Welcome to our website!  We’re Kim and Justin!  We are high school sweethearts and have always been pretty adventurous together, so we’re used to hearing, “You’re doing WHAT?! You’re crazy!!” From spending a summer camping around Europe with a toddler, to moving across the country without knowing where we’d live, to cycling over 200 miles in a day, and running a marathon…

 

Our next adventure was to sell our house in Seattle in 2018 to spend almost two years sailing 7,085 nautical miles from California to New England with our kids, Tyler (Age 14), daughter Evie (Age 7), and our cat Cherry.  Living aboard our 1988 Irwin sailboat named Litha, we visited 8 countries (Mexico, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Belize, Nicaragua, Costa Rica, and Panama) and crossed the Panama Canal!  Our plans changed a bit due to COVID and we are currently living aboard in Salem, Massachusetts so Tyler can attend high school.  We plan to cross the Atlantic Ocean and continue our adventure when he graduates!

 

We invite you to follow along for unique lifestyle inspiration for your own personal navigation!

Life off the deep end

It was really fun to have our friends on @svtravelerco come visit us in Salem for over a week. They were one of our quarantine buddy-boats on our way up the East coast. We played lots of nerd game (Catan)each night in the cockpit, learned to cook live lobster, showed them around Salem, and also sailed up to Rockport for an overnighter. If any other cruiser kid-boats are passing by Salem, MA, stop by and we’ll show you around and play nerd game too! 😉

One of our gas lines had a hole in it so Justin removed the oven to get behind it... and the entire front glass shattered. 😭 No more baking for us. I ordered a toaster oven for the time being. ...
