Nikki Wynn, last sail and last days in the Tuamotus

Our First Time On Land In Weeks!

It’s hard to believe that our time aboard Ticket To Ride has come to an end. The Tuamotus are a magical place but as the saying goes, all good things must come to an end.  Oh, how we will miss marveling at the fifty shades of blue, vibrant coral, and the vast array of fishy friends.

Plus, there is something special about the relationships forged when sailing…or any big extended adventure.  We have deepened our connections with family and friends (old and new) while underway, at anchor, or toiling away at boat projects.  It can also be a fast track to the end of a relationship. 😬  Because it is a lot of togetherness.  We see each other in every light and in a variety of situations from relaxed to pumped up and stressed.  So, you know if you like each other at the end of a sailing adventure you really, really like each other.

While we may be leaving our new friends and Fakarava for now, the memories of this incredible trip will stay with us forever.

Join us for a beautiful downwind sail to Fakarava. We make our way to land for the first time in weeks, take a bike trip around the island, and have our first meal out.🤯

Hello there! I honestly don’t know what to say, so I am going to tell you a bunch of random facts instead. I'm a fish eating vegetarian who hates spiders and loves snakes. I almost never took vacations growing up. I wanted to be Pippi Longstocking (still do). I misspell about every other word I write and still struggle with grammar. I love splurging on a good high tea (which is really hard to find these days). And whatever you do, don’t tell me I can’t do something, because then I'll HAVE to do it!
