Sailing the World With Sailing Ruby Rose

After leaving their careers as a dentist and a paramedic in London behind, Nick Fabbri and Terysa Vanderloo of Sailing Ruby Rose set off to sail the world and never looked back. In this podcast, they share the details of their original escape plan and what they've learned from three years at sea.


Nick Fabbri and Terysa Vanderloo of Sailing Ruby Rose are the first sailing couple to come on Badass Digital Nomads podcast! After leaving their careers as a dentist and a paramedic in London behind, Nick and Terysa set off to sail the world and never looked back.

 

In this podcast, they share the details of their original plan and what they've learned from three years at sea.

 

They talk about what happens after you've had enough sunsets and rum punches - and how they came to realize that they craved more connection, community, and mentally stimulating work to balance out their lifestyle of complete freedom. 

 

They also describe the many cool features of their boats, Ruby Rose and Ruby Rose 2, the highs and lows of living life on the sea, and the lessons they’ve learned while exploring the globe. 

 

They also talk about detoxing from social media, practicing mindfulness, and the courage it takes to step outside of your comfort zone, take risks, and learn new skills to support yourself from anywhere.

 

If you’re interested in learning how to fund your travels while living on a boat full-time, you’ll certainly benefit from listening to this conversation with Nick and Terysa. As they say, life is about expressing yourself, sharing your story with the world, and connecting with others along the way!
