Introducing the Kaufman Family, sailing around the world with 2 young daughters!

Charlotte and Eric Kaufman are sailing around the world on a 36′ ft sailboat with their two young daughters. How amazing is that?! Cora is 3 years old and Lyra is 7 months old. Their adventurous spirit inspires me to my core; how about you?!

They are currently waiting out hurricane season in the Sea of Cortez, Mexico, and will be crossing Pacific Ocean this spring to spend nine months sailing through the South Pacific. After the South Pacific they’ll sail to New Zealand and moor their boat their to regroup before the next portion of their journey.

Over the next while, The Kaufmans are going to update the Where We Wear community on their adventures, specifically featuring the ways in which babywearing plays a role in their lives.

Please help me welcome them to the WWW family!

For this first picture in the Kaufman Family traveling series:

  1. What an adventure! Your children will have quite a story to tell their grandchildren one day (that is, if the Lord tarries). Happy Sails to you!
