The book

PARTIR POUR MIEUX REVENIR

The story of a family of 5 told in all authenticity of a dream too big to be contained…

Always avid for adventure, Annie and her husband Martin fled their native Quebec in 2016, accompanied by their three young children then aged 5, 6 and 7. Armed with courage and perseverance, they set sail without much previous navigation experience, apart from a few classes and practises here and there. Aspired by compulsive consumption and plunged into a daily life that no longer suits them, they seek something greater than themselves, an experience of happiness, complete and inspiring, to live in pure simplicity.

They are chasing one of their wildest dreams. They sail around part of this world, of course, but mostly around themselves. They come back to earth transformed, anxious, uncertain about the western values ​​conveyed but remain convinced that their new destiny will surpass their greatest aspirations.

The author

ANNIE JOMPHE

Annie was born in 1982 in Quebec, Canada. As soon as she had the chance, she left home at 16 to discover the world and never really came back …

Mexico was the first country to take Annie out of her comfort zone, and the exploration never stopped! Married since 2003 to a wonderful husband and with 3 children in tow (2008, 2010, 2011), she is always looking for the next adventure.

Writing is a form of therapy when things go wrong… or when they are too good to be true! In 2016, the family sold everything and went on a sailboat for 2 years, without any previous experience, learning a whole new world and exploring different ways of thinking…

It was the beginning of the love for writing.
