About Me

My photo
After getting my first passport in 2006 and traveling to climb Kilimanjaro in Tanzania my life changed. I began the process of getting rid of all my possessions and traveling the world. Traveling to over 110 countries and all 7 continents, hostels have been my home. This "new life" has taught me what is important and it was NOT accumulating money or possessions. Traveling is the best education. I hope my blog will encourage others to travel. My World Tattoo was a way for me to express my PASSION FOR TRAVEL.

PANAMA, Sailing, San Blas Islands

March 29, 2019

Flew from New Orleans to Panama City, Panama and stayed at Hostel for 2 nights before busing to Portobello and boat crew meeting on the 31st. Had seen sights in Panama City on previous visit so chilled 1st 2 nights.

We set sail with 10 passengers from England, Scotland, Germany, Netherlands and US at 6 pm on April 1st. We sailed all night through pretty rough seas, thank you Dramamine,  and arrived at the 1st of the San Blas Islands we would visit. Spent nice day on uninhabited island and set sail again during the next morning for a 30 minute cruise to a bigger, uninhabited island where we put up hammocks and enjoyed snorkeling, sunning and snoozing for 2 days. Then 40 hours (2 nights) of rough seas to Cartagena arriving at 6 am on April 6th. Enjoyed the overall experience, not the rough seas, but Captain Paul and his partner Sindry made it a great experience. Thanks for the great food Sindry.
