I wanted to take a few moments of your time to introduce myself. Sam and I have been married for nearly 13 years and traveled the world together. With each country we visit, we do our best to see the country via planes, trains, and/or automobiles and even boats OR ferries. :) We pack as much into our vacations as possible so we can maximize what we experience on our trips.
Up until a few years ago, I had never been on a sailboat. Since then, I have done 5 charters with my husband and our friends and family. This past August is when we decided to sell all our belongings, buy a sailboat, and cruise the Caribbean for two-three seasons. I'm very excited but am quite nervous about all the unknowns. My husband is a wonderful instructor, and I have learned some of the "ropes" while being aboard the charters, but I don't feel completely comfortable and prepared to sail full time, yet. I have signed up for an ASA sailing course this June and am excited to learn all I can before setting sale in January.
I have taught mathematics to middle school and high school students for the past 14 years. Eleven of those years have been teaching seventh and eighth graders Pre-Algebra and Algebra. I was granted a leave of absence for the 2016-2017 school year to pursue this recent dream of ours. :) Since my area of expertise is mathematics, I want to apologize ahead of time for my grammar errors, run-on sentences, and incorrect word usage. I'm sure you'll quickly notice that my writing style is completely different than my husband's (he writes professionally). I hope to update often and share as many aspects of our journey with you. I hope you enjoy!
