This couple quit their jobs, sold their cars and started traveling the world. They've been sailing everywhere since 2011, living on only $1000 a month. Since then they've managed to see 16 different countries and even adopted a cat along the way.

“It started in late summer of 2007 while on the shores of Lake Michigan”

So they sold everything they own and basically threw the money away. Incredibly productive indeed.

Sitting in front of the tv can be enjoyable too, and sailing around and looking at stuff ain't productive.
I'm curious where they get the $ to operate the boat; fuel, food, repairs, and berthing fees at all those exotic places isn't free.

Kinda thinking this is bs.
