Be present, make tea, chat.

IMG_0575As usual there has been radio silence again, all my plans to update this while on vacation went out the window  as I was just too busy living my best life with the people that mean so much to me.

 

I’ve found myself reflecting on how amazing it is to be able to travel as I do, all over the place. To have friends in multiple places and the fact that we can go years without seeing each other and then pick up right where we left off.

The yachting industry attracts the gypsy souls that love the adventure, so to be able to move around an catch up with dear friends over cups of tea, a few glasses of cava or playing cards can just be the best idea ever.

I flew out of Boston a few weeks ago to Barcelona then onto Palma then Cannes before a trip to Ireland then into London before flying back to Miami to work. (Miami airport is still one of the worst to fly into in terms of lengthy delays to get through immigration so avoid at all costs if you can!!!)

There were a few catchups with friends that weren’t planned but due to the powers of the magic social media we saw we were in the same place and managed to connect.

So once again I am so grateful for the powers of those avenues that bring people together especially when your phone number is never the same for long!

Another reflection was that as I went to places that I had already been to I was content just to sit and read books, rather than rush around exploring so it was a true filling the cup kinda trip.

The fresh markets in Cannes were also a highlight, being in the states the fresh markets are few and far between compared to Europe, I indulged in fresh juicy figs, got myself a baguette with that flakey salty butter and it was all delicious.
