The most challenging decision about my current sailing adventure wasn’t whether or not to go, but how will I get enough protein, not fry in the sun, claim my bag after 5 connecting flights.
 
Answers: 24 protein bars, relying on sun-shirts instead of suntan lotion, taking just one carry on.
 
I’ll report back whether or not these were the right decisions…

See ya on the road,
