After 2 full, horrific days at sea, we arrived at our first island, Tortola.
As I thought would be the case, I was terribly sea-sick. However, nothing could have prepared me for just how sea-sick I got. Yep, it was worse than I ever thought possible.
After leaving Miami, our ship, Silver Spirit, had to travel through the Atlantic Ocean to get to our first Caribbean island, Tortola, which is located in the British Virgin Islands.
The choppy waves of the Atlantic hit us hard and it wasn’t long before the world as spinning. I was literally crawling around my room, unable to stand and fearing that I’d vomit at any moment. I likened the experience to being hungover and drunk at the same time. Very, very hungover and very, very drunk..
I groaned, trying but failing to get comfortable on the sofa. Movie after movie played on our screen but I couldn’t quite enjoy any of them, not when I felt so queasy.

Hi there! Want to find out what happens next? You can find the full story with all the juicy details over at my Patreon.
What is Patreon? you may ask. Well, Patreon is a platform where I upload exclusive content. By paying a small fee per month, you will gain access to loads of content.
It was a big decision for me to set this up but after careful consideration I felt it was the right thing to do. It allows me to be more creative and more honest, sharing stories I would never tell otherwise.
It also allows me to start earning from content creation. If you've been following me for a while now, you will know I don't do create content for the money. I write because I love it! But earning a small income from what I'm passionate about has its benefits. It allows me to travel more and put more effort into my work. I can actually justify spending countless hours planning content!
