Visiting the USA

19 August 2016
For the first time since 2009, we're back in the USA! It's prompting some complicated feelings. The latest posted to the blog, sailingtotem.com, and everyday updates on our Facebook page at facebook.com/sailingtotem.

Prepping for the Indian Ocean

25 August 2014
Engine troubles scuttled plans to explore Borneo and the Philippines this last year, but Malaysia has been a lot of fun regardless. We're focusing our energy on getting ready for next year's big adventure: crossing the Indian Ocean! Read all about it at the *updated* Sailing Totem website.

Into Southeast Asia

01 July 2013
WOW, what an amazing ~9 months of cruising through Papua New Guinea and Indonesia! Amazing places we hope to return to someday...but for now, Totem is in Malaysia, and making plans to work our way to Thailand.
