All my life I’ve been dreaming of cruising around on a sailboat. And ever since I started surfing and wave kiting nearly two decades ago, this dream turned into “…cruising around on a sailboat in the “South Pacific” for very obvious reasons: Warm water, tropical temperatures, glassy conditions and some of the best waves in the world 🏄‍♀️🌊🏝️🌺

Well, and I’m living this dream right now !!! 😝💃

I’m in Fiji on one of the most beautiful sailing boats I’ve ever seen: a rebuilt 80ft Whitbread Round the World Sailing Yacht 🤩, the CAMARA ♥️⛵️

Owned by a family of four (both teenage kids have lived on boats since they were a few hours old!!! So special !!!) who have been sailing and cruising for over 20 years 🙏

It’s suuuuuch a privilege to spend time with them 🥰 and I’ll be forever grateful to the Palmer Family. There’s the two Captains Pete & Christina, and their kids Tara and Cameron (hence the name of the boat: Camara)

So yeah, this is home sweet home for a next few weeks, and I couldn’t be more stoked and excited!!! 💃

In fact, I’m a bit delayed with this post (the ones amongst you following my Insta stories would know that), and I already lived some craaaaazy adventures here surfing, kiting and lots more💨🏄‍♀️🌊😝💥👊

Stay tuned for head over to my Insta Account for super fun stories and more posts about this unforgettable once-in-a-lifetime experience that I’m living right now on board the CAMARA ⛵️🤟
