Win a Copy of “Where the Magic Happens”

Julie Uncategorized 4 Comments

We are working with Bloomsbury Publishing to give away one free copy of Where the Magic Happens, How a Young Family Changed Their Lives and Sailed Around the World by Caspar Craven.

Note:  This contest is now closed.

A Brief Overview of the Craven Family World Adventure

The Craven family spent close to two years circumnavigating the globe in a sailboat.

I first learned about Caspar and his family in the fall of 2015. We had just finished our trip around the world and the Craven family was about to embark on the final leg of their journey around the world. I don’t recall exactly how we started talking, it just seems that families who are traveling around the world somehow end up crossing paths digitally.

In December of 2015, Caspar wrote a guest post for our website. It was a quick question and answer session, and it’s a great introduction to his book. You can read it here:

Sailing Around the World…an Interview with an Inspiring Family

During their journey around the world, this family of five sailed 35,000 miles, visited 26 countries, and went on a life changing adventure.

Craven Family

Since the completion of their journey in 2016, Caspar wrote a book called Where the Magic Happens, How a Young Family Changed Their Lives and Sailed Around the World.

His book begins long before they sailed away from land. For me, the most amazing part of their story is what it took for them to plan and prepare and save enough money in order to make this happen. It’s crazy and hectic and very inspirational.

The second half of the book is about their journey around the world…the difficulties they faced, the places they visited, and what it was like to be together as a family 24/7 on a sailboat.

If you are curious about what it would be like to sail around the world or you are contemplating doing something similar, add this book to your reading list.

You can purchase Where the Magic Happens on Amazon or enter our contest for a free copy.
