For Oskar Olausson and Lisa Lindeberg, what started as just an idea of buying a boat and sailing around the world soon turned into a reality after purchasing a secondhand Jeanneau 45 they found sitting in a yard in Italy.

They spent two years fixing it up and then, on August 6, 2017, thy bid farewell to their home waters of Sweden and headed off.

Today, after crossing the Atlantic, Pacific and Indian Oceans, we catch up with Oskar and Lisa from the Island of Mauritius to hear firsthand where they've been, what they've been up to and what's in store for the future.
