13 Nov

#248. Bryan Rolfe is a grass-roots 30-something cruiser with big dreams and a small budget. Hes been documenting his adventures aboard his 27-foot Albin Vega TARKA on YouTube, and is currently in the Caribbean. Mia & I have followed Bryan from afar since he started his trip, and my conversation with him ended up being a very inspirational look at how someone takes a dream and turns it into reality. Longtime fans of the show will know how excited I get talking to other young folks out there cruising, but this episode is truly for anyone who dreams of heading off in their own boat, no matter your age or financial situation. Bryan truly started from scratch and tells the whole inspiring story of how he made his dreams reality.
