I am a girl who spent the majority of her childhood blue ocean sailing! AMA!
Hi Reddit! As the title says, I grew up blue ocean sailing! We lived on a forty foot sail boat. I have been traveling with my family since I was five. We left the states and have been up and down the coast of Mexico. After two years of Mexico, we crossed into the South Pacific. While there we visited places such as Nuhu Hiva, Tahiti, Bora Bora, Niue, and Tonga before finally ending up in New Zealand. I lived there for two and a half years, attending school and being there for the filming of Lord of the Rings. No joke. I saw bits and pieces of the sets from the movies everywhere, it was so cool. Anyway, after New Zealand we continued our travels and went to Fiji, Vanuatu and New Caledonia. We finally ended up in Australia where we sold the boat after staying three months and came back to the US so I could start High School.
