The project founder aboard her former vessel SV Estrellita 5.10b in Tonga.
Livia started the original interview project in 2010 and, after more than 100 completed interviews, the project went officially on intermission in September 2011.

After almost 5 years of intermission, the first new interview was published on April 17, 2016.

The project format stayed the same with some changes to the questions asked. All interviewees are cruisers who have been outside of their home country for longer than two years - sometimes a great deal longer!

New interviews will come out semi-regularly, always on Mondays. You can receive notices about new interviews by subscribing, by following us on Facebook or Twitter, or adding this site to your feed reader of choice.

Plans are in the works for a video series. Videos will be posted on the main site as they roll out and you can subscribe to our youtube channel to be notified of new interviews as well.

I continue to publish interviews of newer cruisers on the companion site - Newly Salted
