The open ocean may seem the the vast expanse between destinations. This void of endless waves where storms and sea monsters reside!
To me, the open ocean is one of my favorite destinations. You are completely clear of everything and everyone, no one can reach you. Blue waves are all your eyes can see in all directions and the sunsets turn the blue sky into an inferno.
To me, the ocean is the destination and land is merely the wait before I get to be back out in the open sea.
We have made it all the way across the ocean! We sailed coast to coast (Florida to Portugal) and are exploring this wonderful and ancient land. In the states, an old building might be a few hundred years old, but in Europe, that was yesterday! We have been visiting towns and cities along the coast where the buildings are dated by which century they are from instead of which year.
While visiting really old cities is fun, something a bit more interesting is experiencing their liquor. Portugal is famous for Port Wine which comes from Porto (they got really creative with names at that time) and why not sample some of these gems while we are in town?
We went on a wine tour and met a bunch of wonderful people from all over the world who have been attracted to this ancient city on the river by the sea.
