I haven't had read all the replies but I've seen your blog before and love the pics. I love that you're always running around in a bikini and you look great. Since there are female readers of your blog too, maybe a few more pics of your man without HIS shirt on?

Re: Woman, 28, Aboard a 35' Boat Sailing Around the World with Her Man

I haven't seen this whole thread, but I saw the "blog" - if that's what you want to call it! I don't know exactly what it is, but it is original. Part art, part commercial, part BelAir yard sale... in any case the photos are beautiful, the layout professional, and the poetry - well I didn't read it that closely.

The suede shoes with the gold tips really are something though!

Whatever it is you they are doing, they are certainly pouring a lot of effort and passion into it!

And I think a lot of people are jealous that THEY were not chosen as a brand ambassador for something! Which gives me a great new thread idea...

You feel differently, so do other people and that's cool. I was simply expressing MY opinion that I find that blog a little commercialized and exploitative for MY tastes.
Not picking on you in particular, but I find these "sex" comments off the mark, and frankly offensive to the couple.

I looked at all the photos and did not see any "sex" in them, though certainly an obvious love for "sexy" living and lifestyles, and a couple who are dedicated to that.

The photography and modeling is excellent, though a little odd appearing in what is ostensibly a travel blog.

I wonder how much of this reaction is the difference between US and European sensibilities about gender roles, sexuality, and the value of fashion and style....

Also, I think there's some clash between this couple, who seem to have made careers in fashion merchandising, and the bulk of "retired old men" here who seem to mostly engineering and business types.

Soooo...my first impression of the blog was that it was a fake. Anyone else? Anyone met these folks?

If it were a fake, what a hysterical way to make advertising money.

Yep, we met them at the Turtle Inn or Turtle Pier or whatever it used to be in Sint Maarten. They were selling their HR-38 I think it was and moving to a new boat. Very nice couple, polite and friendly. I'm not at all sure about these haters. No one is making you look at their blog, you have a back button or something. If you don't like it, don't look at it. Jeesh.

Yeah, I'm quite sure they are for real. Why fake, because the site seems so professional?

Re: Woman, 28, Aboard a 35' Boat Sailing Around the World with Her Man

Well, I just asked out of curiosity. I have no real reason to think so but I wondered originally because the site seemed designed to be your average male sailor's wet dream.

Come on, I can't be the only person who wondered.

Why are you quite sure?

No need to be "clear" or even keep discussing whether it is "fake" or not. KuparukGypsy has stated he has met them.

What is your problem?
