Family Afloat: would you live on the high seas?

Part of the Kinderling Conversation for parents. Weekdays 12pm-1pm.

Fri 14 July 2017

Interesting people and diverse families are all around us, but sometimes it takes a conversation or two to discover the ones that are already in our lives.

Such was the case when Kinderling Conversation host Shevonne Hunt was chatting to her yoga teacher Dini Martinez and discovered she had lived on a boat for three years with her family, first setting sail when her youngest son was just two months old.

For more on Dini and her family's adventures, check out their website Sailing Yoga Family.
