A March update from Miami

Happy Tuesday y’all from Miami! An update of my travel activities is well overdue so it’s time to fill you in on what I have been up to and what has changed in this nomad’s life.

After an ama-zing nine months aboard MY Solaia, I bid my surrogate family farewell after an incredible 2012 New England season and a brief Caribbean season. Ian and Mel, Mark and Lisa, Ryan, Clancy, Mini, Cedgy, Rolle, Scott, Mrs Tea and the garden gnomes – I loved working with you all and miss you dearly. Hopefully we will be berthed alongside one another soon.

Fun-employment February commenced and I headed to a lovely cottage in Fort Lauderdale, Florida to recuperate from the busy Caribbean charters. A week of sleep aka ‘working on my bed sores’, lying on the beach, shopping, reading my book and chilling out was much needed. However, the travel itch started to tickle between my toes so I booked a flight to visit one of my dearest friends, Tash, in Tortola, British Virgin Islands. Originally I was going to stay for a few days but then I extended my trip and stayed for ten amazing days. You will read more about my days in paradise later this week.

My three week vacation came to an end as it was time for me to start the next chapter in my life. A certain someone who exited the friend zone a few months ago and [slow clap] convinced me that ‘nothing ventured, nothing gained’ is the way forward convinced me to join him on his yacht. So last Saturday I joined Rich, the crew and owners on  MY Emelina in Fort Lauderdale and have cruised to the Bahamas and Miami since then. Today we are on under way back to Rybovich Marina in West Palm for a few days before the next charter. So far it’s been great and I felt at home on day one. I think I’m going to like it here 🙂

Other new developments include my new Facebook page where I can keep you all informed and entertained 🙂 Please like my page to follow my travels and to add your two cents on the wall if you please.

Thanks for your support and I promise to blog more regularly to share my travel experiences. Watch this space for blogs on Cinnamon Bay in St John and St Thomas, U.S. Virgin Islands as well as Tortola and Virgin Gorda in the British Virgin Islands.

My three week break away from hard work and play has helped me harmonize my life. Lots of sleep, exercise, a break from alcohol and partying, reading books and discovering new places has rejuvenated me. I aim to try maintain this as much as possible:

“Harmony is eating and resting, sleeping and waking: balance in all you do. This is the path to peace.” – Bhagavad Gita (1st/2nd Century)
