Couple Sells Everything to Buy a Boat… Wait Till You See the New Crew Member!

Matt and Jessica Johnson weren’t happy living the American Dream. They had their jobs, but weren’t content to simply sit in front of a TV each night winding down.

It wasn’t long before they realized that they weren’t being very productive, and sought a happier life. Did they really want to live in a house and be stuck in a revolving door of boredom, or did they want to sell everything and travel the world?

Matt and Jessica had no children of their own, but it’s funny what life has in store for you when you make a change…

 Matt and Jessica’s boat trip changed their lives

Jessica and Matt were fascinated by sailing. One day they decided to give it a try, and went on a sailing trip. As they sailed around, they thought how much fun it would be to own their own boat, rather than being on someone else’s boat.

The Johnsons sell everything to buy a sailboat!

sailing_lifestyleMatt and Jessica decided that rather than buying another piece of property, they’d rather buy a sailboat instead. Their dream was to sail the world. In 2011 they sold everything they owned, and embarked on their own sailing adventure, managing to live off just $1000 per month.

Look who joins them!cat_joins_the_crewIn 2012 they add a member to their crew: Georgie the cat! It turns out that Georgie has some very special sailing skills too!

Georgie the Cat lends a paw where needed

Georgie loves swimming

Their confidence in Georgie’s sailing skills has increased tenfold and the cat has proven she can look after herself on the water.

The Johnson’s don’t settle for a boring life; it’s the best life!

Johnsons_sailing_adventureThe Johnson’s, including Georgie the cat, are enjoying their high seas adventure. For them, they realized that the average concept of school, work, family just wasn’t for them. Along the way, they adopted Georgie, who wasn’t into the standard cat life either.

Now that’s the most adorable sailing crew I’ve ever seen!
