He is a former mattress seller, she is a diver and waitress, both with the spirit of adventure and freedom in the veins. They fell in love and, after six years of work, dreams and savings, they decided to go live aboard Agápe, a 1984 40-foot Tayana Vancouver that they discovered in 2016 in Baja California, Mexico.


This was the departing point of their Pacifi exploration. From there, they have never stopped: Mexico, Guatemala, Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Honduras, Panama, Galapagos and Polynesia. Their blog is littered with beautiful and breathtaking shots. One of those that make you think, looking out of your city window, in the middle of the coronavirus pandemic, “what am I still doing here?”.

Agape sailing

On board Agape, life runs happily with a lot of activities, including fishing for food, jobs on board, explorations in the Central American forest, swimming in the wild and unspoiled atolls, contacts with local populations and volunteer actions. Josh and Rachel’s is a good story. But above all, a possible story. Thanks for making us dream!
