Luna is the second-oldest daughter of the Coconut family, self-described nomads who travel around the world in a sailboat. Now, for the first time, this young girl will sail alone around Iceland.

The Coconuts are a family of six who have been traveling all over the world on their sailboat, recording their lives and journeys to different countries. While they have been traveling through the Caribbean and North Atlantic, Europe is next on their list. Their 9-year-old daughter is about to sail around the country in her own sailboat, Xena.


You can follow her voyage on their Facebook-page or website. We wish her the best of luck!
