In this episode, Erin from RoamGeneration shares how she and her family went from watching a sailing documentary to living life on a boat full time. 

We discuss the financial aspects of things and the transition to and from life on boat to land between different seasons of life. Erin also talks about how she runs a fully remote agency right from her boat cabin and the challenges of living together as a family within the confines of a boat.

Book Your Flight

I usually use a combination of 2-3 of the following search engines to find cheap flights: Skyscanner, Momondo, Google Flights

Find Your Accommodation is my usual platform for finding accommodation options as they have one of the largest selections. Hostelworld is great for booking hostels. For more private or long term accommodation, Airbnb is my go-to platform.

Travel Insurance

Travel insurance is important for to protect yourself against unforeseen circumstances. I usually look at a few insurance companies depending on my travel needs.
  • SafetyWings for Travel Health Insurance
  • IMG Global for added Insurance when doing activities outside of usual coverage
