HOW WE ACCIDENTALLY MADE IT 'BIG' ON YOUTUBE 🥺

    Guys, it's been a massive adventure. And like any story, it's filled with a series of events fortunate, unlikely, frankly a little crazy in hindsight. We're having a look back at when we first got started with SLV, so we can share with you a few of our thoughts on what it was like to put ourselves out there and take our big gamble. Even if you've been with us from the start, one of the folks giving us the push to keep going, there's of course so much to what happened that needs a little going over. We hope you guys get as much out of it as we did putting this together and remembering where we came from. So, without further ado, this is how we went from messing about with Windows Movie Maker and flattening our batteries for some family home videos to where we are now, talking to you guys 6 years later.

    Love how uncomfortable riley still gets in front of the camera. I realy understand your thoughts and your feelings about exposing yourself and knowing the response. I am thinking of starting this whole yt thing with my girlfriend too (we just builded out a van ourselfs). I think its probably just the thoughts about what could happen that are scary not the people behind the screen (like me who has the same thoughts). We love you guys and what you are doing. And would love to meet you one day. If plans work out we might end up on a boat too because of you. :) Or if you guys are a back in europe one day we could help you out as a nanny... im 23 and worked with kids for probably 7 or 8 years. Anyway keep it up you are amazing ! :)

    Aren't you missing out the main reason for your success? The fact that Elayna is the cutest thing on earth and all men who see her fall in love at first sight.

    i've scaled back my youtube watching drastically but still find time to watch yours. there is something about your authenticity that forms a strong connection with people from all over the world. best wishes on your new adventures.

    Your diffirent personalities actually make a very good team. Without your individual strenghts and weaknesses this journey would not have been such a success. Riley being so practical plans ahead and makes sure tasks are being completed making the journey "smooth sailing" so to speak. And Elanya being the arty one, with her light hearted personality bringing us the sights , sounds and tastes. Congratulations you are both doing a good job!!I would like to see Elanya playing the guitar and singing. How about one "Unplugged Concert on La Vagabond"?

    I love watching your videos. The views of the ocean sunsets and the swells always get me to remember back to my 23 years of being an active duty sailor in the U.S. Navy. Gosh, I miss sailing across the many oceans and seas. God bless you and your family.
