This Couple That Sold Their House And Bought A Boat In The Mediterranean Is Now Dominating Instagram

There’s something about people quitting their jobs or selling their homes purely to seek adventure that just gets me goin’ man. First, it was Dwyer Haney, and now it’s Captain and Charlie.

These two Kiwis (read: people from New Zealand) met in 2010, designed and built a home for their future family… and then just sold it in favor of getting on a sailboat and heading to the Mediterranean Sea where they’ve been cruising around since last spring.

Their story, which is amazing in itself and can be read in full at their website, doesn’t hold a candle to their Instagram that will make you #wanderlust your face off.

Just look at these two cheesing for the camera.

Most people only dream of spending their honeymoon in the Mediterranean and these two are just sitting there in solitude with one another. Dammit.

Just this morning I was looking at tables on fucking Ikea’s website, which would probably just fall apart after 6 months of use anyway. And there’s Charlie, just sitting there with a 2-foot by 4-foot table and all the peace of mind in the world.

Sure as shit beats sitting in Starbucks reading while the people behind you complain about whether or not the coffee tastes “funny.”

Look at him. Just looking like Dickie in The Talented Mr. Ripley.

Man, and I spent my New Year freezing my tits off while watching Michigan State get drubbed by Alabama.

How was your commute this morning? Yeah, that’s what I thought.

Remember that selfie you took with your significant other last weekend at brunch? They just put you into submission with this one.

They even dress and clean up well on land.

Or, you know, undress and clean up well at sea.

“It’s a tough gig, but someone’s gotta do it.” And you’re just sitting at your desk looking for an excuse to leave early, only to have Joan in accounting drop a “must be nice” on you as you walk out the door.

If you want to live vicariously through these two, follow them on Instagram or on their site.
