Walking tour of colorful Old San Juan

We spent a full day in Old San Juan before jumping on our 3:30AM flight to Atlanta, GA…yup, you read that correct, 3:30AM. The main attraction here are the forts (with breathtaking views of the Atlantic) but Old San Juan is a place best explored by foot so wandering the streets was the highlig

Lovely Long Island…Officially in the tropics

We made it to Long Island 馃檪 The furthest south we’ve been in our sailboat – so far! We had high expectations for Long Island based off all that we read and of course what other cruisers had told us, “You’re gonna love it”. Happy to say, it did not disappoint and it&#
