It’s been a crazy couple of weeks! I finally managed to get all of my things packed up and put safely away in storage in California after procrastinating horribly for days. I think that I needed the pressure of a hard deadline to get me to finally start putting things in boxes. The move went well though and the very next day I caught a plane for England.
I’m staying in Brighton for a bit while I catch up with old friends. I’m having such an amazing time here and am seriously considering moving back to this part of the world. I’ve always said that Brighton is one of my very favourite places in the whole world. And right now, the weather is amazing!
I spent the past week in Greece, doing some sailing with a group of 9 friends. We rented a 50 foot sailboat and one of our friends has his skipper’s license so we were able to crew the whole thing ourselves. It was kind of a reunion of sorts. Many of the same group were on a sailing trip to Italy that we took about 5 years ago. We’d had such a great time that we decided to do it again for one of our friends who was having a big birthday.
It was great. We learned very quickly just how important it is to check the weather forecasts (oops) even when it looks brilliantly sunny out. We managed to sail into a storm but after a few tricky moments, a few hours of getting soaked through and really working hard on the sails plus a lot of adrenaline, we managed to find safe harbor.
It was a brilliant trip and now I’m just washing all of my clothes and repacking my bags as I’ll be heading off to Cannes in a couple of days for the WPT National Series event. Hopefully see you there!
