Ever thought about giving up all of your possessions and seeing the world? I think we all have. But one couple actually took the plunge.

Matt and Jessica Johnson turned their hobby of sailing into a permanent lifestyle after lots of planning and saving. In 2012, they both quit their jobs and sold their cars and set sail as planned around the United States and Bahamas, according to their blog, MJ Sailing.

Since then, they’ve adopted their cat named Georgie, who has surprisingly become quite comfortable out on the open water. They’ve also sailed to Cuba, Central America, and crossed the Atlantic twice last year, as stated on their blog.

Currently, they’re working on rebuilding a new boat in Indiantown, Florida, in preparation for their next sailing adventure. They are truly an inspiration. Georgie, too!
