Alec and I “began” the journey in 2011 when we began planning and dreaming of purchasing a boat capable of crossing oceans and taking us to places we have only been in our imagination. When Jack was born – in 2010, we began considering the options for his childhood. We both wanted to give Jack something that was different than the conventional childhood. We wanted an alternative experience. Initially, we decided to buy a home on an island and take a couple of years to live there when Jack was old enough to appreciate the adventure, but slowly and thanks in no small part to the many bloggers who detailed their adventures before us, we began to see a different adventure for Jack – and for us. We began to dream about living… well…. everywhere. And the live aboard, crossing oceans seed was planted. The watering of that seed was done regularly by those wonderful bloggers before us – 3@Sea, Dirona, San Souci, Grey Pearl and later Ocean Pearl (whose boat we later purchased) and Pendana to name a few. And they are the reason that I decided to blog. We owe all of you a debt of Gratitude for sharing your knowledge and experiences with us so that we may “See the Invisible” . So, while we aren’t even sure where this dream will take us, here we go!

Alec and Laurie Thyrre (both retired airline pilots) are making an effort to share and experience as much of this beautiful planet with their now 11 yr old son Jack and cat Pratt while traveling aboard a 64' Nordhavn boat. We started this adventure in 2018 and crossed the Atlantic in 2019. View more posts
