POSTCARDS FROM PARADISE

January 14, 2016


Ever since I was little, I often dreamt about sailing around the world. As time went on, the dream started to take a more concrete shape and my husband and I began toying with an idea of taking a year off, wondering what it would be like to sail to all the places we always wanted to visit. Well, as they say "ask and you shall receive", because I couldn't help but feel that it was more than a mere coincidence when The Yacht Week approached me about the possibility of sailing around British Virgin Islands.

























Funny, as excited as I was about making my dream a reality, I was also a bit anxious. Sure, I've sailed before ( and enjoyed it tremendously ), but never for a prolonged period of time. And so, I didn't know what to expect. Would a week on a boat make an even bigger sail enthusiast out of me, or would I crush and burn?

Well, it took me exactly a day to get my sea legs and realize that I never wanted to leave! If I could spend the rest of my life on a boat, I honestly would! There is nothing quite as exhilarating as waking up in a morning and seeing that beautiful turquoise water and blue, blue sky all around you!

Ah, and the British Virgin Islands! What a beautiful place! Amazingly clear waters, white sandy beaches, great food and weather. Don't know about you guys, but that's pretty much all I need to be happy!:) Honestly, I've been back for about a week now, yet I can't help but think and plan my next visit.

P.S. Special thank you to The Yacht Week and to our wonderful crew! Riley, Christine and Jake, you guys made this trip absolutely unforgettable! Thank you so much for making my dream a reality!:)

What a coincidence, because my Boyfriend just asked me last night if I would go on a cruise, and sadly no because I get sea sick easily but not on roller coasters? how funny! Plus, those "Love" sandals are hott!
