As you may have guessed, or probably already know by now… I love the ocean. Being on, or in the sea is the best place to be (no rhyme intended- that’s the English teacher in me coming out). Whenever I get the chance, I’ll find a way to be on a beach doing what I do best: walking on the beach, wadding in its sultry water, laying in the sand under the warm sun, or being active on it/in it. What goes hand in hand with being a beach bum? My passion for water sports! While in Cuba, I had the chance to sail the spectacular turquoise water on a catamaran and paddle my way through the stunning turquoise blue Caribbean sea.
Sailing the sea makes me want to live on the ocean and be a pirate for life. A vagabond who owns the sea and lives for the sea; I dream of nothing more than buying a yacht and sailing the world as I discover one new turquoise destination after another. After my wake up call, I realize this might not quite be my reality, but that I can still get pieces of this lifestyle one bit at a time. As I believe, it’s never too late to dream a new dream. I’ll keep dreaming for now.
If only I could kayak the day away every single day! There is something freeing about being on the water and moving so swiftly and quietly across the surface. Being on the water in a kayak is like no other feeling–as if it’s just me and the world. Free as a fish in the sea. If I had a kayaking goal it would be to kayak in every turquoise destination that I visit! I think I’m pretty close to that goal.
As I have mentioned before, I’m hard pressed to choose my favorite water sport. I love them all; they each have something to offer me that the others can’t. I’ll let you be the judge: snorkeling, scuba diving, kite surfing, surfing, body boarding, sailing, shark tank, swimming with whale sharks, SUP, catamaran, river tubing, white water rafting, kayaking, cliff jumping (yes I said it), body surfing, ocean rafting, and swimming (among others). Which is your favorite?
How do you stay active while traveling?
