Spending time with family is such an important part of life. It reminds us of our roots and it reminds us of the importance of living with some sort of values. Most of the time, this is extremely difficult when you live a world away. In our case, our families live in the United States’ mainland and we currently live on a sailboat in the US Virgin Islands. Nevertheless, we try very hard to make time to journey to the States to spend time with them.
