About us

The Schellens family

We are Anthony, Luisa, Amber, Dusty and Beatrix. In March 2015 we started living aboard our 48ft yacht, Tangaroa. This particular adventure is starting in Whangerei, New Zealand. We returned to Australia in January 2016. The next adventure on this blog documents our rafting trip along the Murray River, Australia during January 2018.



Hello, my name is Amber. I am 13 years old. I like doing gymnastics, dancing, reading books, watching movies and swimming. My favourite food is water melon. I don’t like spaghetti bolognaise or baked potatoes. I love the colour blue.  I love our dog, Carbon.




My name is Dusty and I am 10 years old. I like doing gymnastics, playing the piano and going swimming. My favourite colour is pink. When I grow up I would like to be a mum. I like sailing and I had lots of fun living on our yacht. I think it will be really fun living on our kayak raft too!



I’m 8 years old and my name is Beatrix. I love making things, playing with Dusty and Carbon and dancing and I like gymnastics. My favourite foods are cheese and noodles. I think living on a boat is great. I don’t like wearing dresses and I a million times HATE pink. My favourite colour is turquoise.
