Gone Floatabout

Sailing, Photography, Wilderness

Hi, we’re Ellen and Seth,

and these are our stories of voyaging across the world’s oceans aboard our wooden sailboat Celeste.

I’m a writer and photographer and Seth is a PhD economist and data scientist.

We’ve been lucky enough to work at what we love and to have squeezed in a lot of adventures in our free time. We circumnavigated the planet in our early 20s aboard an old and tired sailboat we restored ourselves. Then we restored another sailboat and voyaged to the Arctic. And we lived in Europe for 6 years while Seth earned his PhD. My posts are mostly about our sailing, despite the fact that in reality we spend the majority of our time ashore working. More fun to write (and for you to read!) about our beautiful watery planet!
