A woman and her cat are racking up more travel miles than most of us ever will in our lifetimes.
Liz Clark has been sailing the world on her boat “Swell” since 2005 with her feline companion, a torbie cat named Amelia. They originally set sail from California, and have since sailed over 18,000 nautical miles – across the west coast of Mexico, Central America and the South Pacific.
“You understand Teacher, don’t you, that when you have a mother who’s an angel and a father who is a cannibal king, and when you have sailed on the ocean all your whole life, then you don’t know just how to behave in school with all the apples and ibexes.” –Astrid Lindgren, Pippi Longstocking // Surf mission with #AmeliatheTropicat in her go-to @patagonia_surf StormfrontPack #WindinourHair #natureovermoney #rethinktherules @patagonia @zealoptics @loveavasol @mizulife @aquaticoddities @b4bc photo with @gopro!!

Clark said Amelia especially enjoys fishing from a surfboard.
Amelia gloating over her first official fishing success…🐟 i have tried to make her a few different kinds of floating platforms to fish from, but she never liked them. recently a friend gave us a soft-top surfboard and it turns out that #Tropicat finds it up to her standards. woke up to 2 of these on the floor of the cabin…she ate one, then carried this one around all morning…🏆 #thanksGael!! @patagonia_surf @mizulife @loveavasol @zealoptics @ecoflex_
