I leave tonight at 11:55 p.m. for the British Virgin Islands on my mom’s dream vacation. A friend of my mom and stepdad’s has so kindly lent us their sailboat for the week, which is docked in St. Thomas. My stepfather is an expert sailor and has done a transatlantic going from Bermuda to Spain in a 30 ft sailboat. He completed the journey in a month, after encountering days with no visible land, 30ft waves and whales playfully nudging his boat. So this sail on a 47 ft sailboat around the islands will truly be a luxury vacation.
My mom so kindly cashed in her miles so that Raphael and I could come along on their cruise. I know, I know, you hate me. I’m not sure which islands we’ll be visiting as of yet, but you know I’ll be reporting back. But don’t worry; I won’t really be MIA for a week, because I’ve already scheduled a couple of posts to go up while I am away. So, it will be like I never left, I’ll just come back tanner and with fun necklaces and photos. Keep a look out on my pre-written posts. See you soon.
