It started with some bookshelves.
She was a wanderer and he was a voyager. They met, but remained worlds apart...chatting here and there as time allowed while they traveled on their separate paths. Soon, the time between conversations grew shorter and the talk more in depth. She was a lover of books, hiking, and photography. He loved sailboats, science fiction, and roller blading. They both craved adventure.
Before they knew it, hypothetical scenarios started to get tossed around. Do you like the sea? What about boats? What about family? Here or there...
Then one day he asked her how large most of her books were. As she wondered why, he explained that he was rebuilding the bookshelves on his boat, Paragon, and wanted to be sure that it could accommodate any books she had. Carpentry, she thought, is no longer hypothetical.
Now they live together on Paragon and hope to do the slowest circumnavigation ever. None of this "AROUND THE WORLD IN 200 DAYS". Rather, they want to meander around the world, exploring every cove, immersing themselves in the culture, and documenting their discoveries in photos and on film.
