San blas islands beaches

 

Hi.

 

I’ve missed you.

 

Really.

 

I’ve been thinking about you a lot.

 

San Blas Islands

 

In fact

there are so many things

I have wanted to say

but could not.

 

San Blas

 

You see

I’ve been away

with no internet

and at times, unable to even lift my head.

Hopping from one hopelessly beautiful tropical island to another

 

san blas

 

Saluting the sun with my yoga postures

often losing my balance

the sand eroding beneath me with the wash of each wave

 

san blas chichimae

 

Snorkeling the nearby reef with my fish friends

the sound of my breath drowning the thoughts in my mind

 

san blas fisherman

 

Feasting on freshly caught lobster prepared by the indigenous islanders

washing our dishes in the sea with the coarse white sand

 

San Blas Waysaddalup

 

Sharing stories with other travelers, the moon lighting the sea

 

sailboat san blas

 

Living on a very small sailboat, with no shower, with six others for six days, bathing in saltwater for the first four, my own sweat for the last two

 

san blas

 

Drinking warm, “earth” flavored water and turning down the ham, milk, and cheese the captain offered from a humid cabinet… there was no refrigerator onboard

 

Sailing San Blas

 

Enduring fifty… yes FIFTY solid hours of sailing induced naseau as we crossed the Caribbean, nothing around us but open water for miles

 

conch san blas

 

Surviving on nothing but a peanut butter sandwich for two days… my stomach would not hold anything else down

 

kuna yala sailboat

 

Trusting the ability of our drunken sailor as water sloshed into our cabin during all hours of the night, the vessel’s violent sways interrupting my dreams of home…

Now, in Colombia, I have never been so happy to rest my two feet on the ground.

 

And I can’t wait

to share the rest of my adventures

with all of you.

If you want to take a quantum leap in what you can create in your reality, I invite you to join The Freedom Tribe, where I share all of my guidance for the freedom lifestyle. Then, hop over to my new website camillewillemain.com where I'm sharing my new message and brand. Thank you for your interest and investment in This American Girl, whether today or for many years.
