I think it's a privilege to meet people with different cultures and backgrounds. That’s also why i love to travel so much. There are so many other ways to life your life then the way I’m doing it. I love being open and learning about these other ways.
So while traveling it is quite easy to meet new people. But it is even easy-er to meet a summer love! Especially when you are surrounded by people that are traveling as well and in a good mood. It all depends if your open to it.
While traveling i wasn't really open for a summer date. I was actually loving not being in to somebody at all for a while.
Half way down the trip we stayed with friends of mine who have moved to Chile. It was amazing to see them and see where and how they are living their life now. They have three small kids. Which made it pretty intense. Nothing more then big respect for how she's running the family life.
So after our visit in Chile it was time to do some serious chilling. We went to the San Blas Islands in Panama. Have you heard of these islands? They are thru paradise!! A group of little tropical islands being owned by the Kuna Indians. The best thing about it is that the woman are the bosses of their island! Just how it's suppose to be, right!?
So we stayed on one of these islands, which can't really host more then 30 people. There is hardly anything on the island. There are little cabins made from palm trees all the way. Every cabin has a few beds. There where 2 toilets and 2 showers with salty water. There was one big kitchen where the island family provided all the guests with three meals a day. There was a little main cabin/house where you could buy some water, crisps, cookie or toothpaste. That’s it. Ow, no i'm forgetting they most important....the Rum!
It was a true magical place! I found pure relaxation. No impulses all the time. Noting that 'you have to do'. Only thing around you was nature. It was lovely to swim in the clear blue water between the fish. But the most magical was the thing that happened at night. There was bioluminesence! Plankton that lights up blue at night. A-frecking-mazing!!!
Ok, ok, ok I can hear you think..so that was the romantic part?
It sort of was but no, there was more. On the island lived a family. One of them was a youngish Indian man. He's ant is the boss of the island. He was working for her. And yes, he was the one I spend a romantic night with. In the evening a bunch of us where hanging out, playing cards and drinking rum. The dining area was the only area with light and there was music. Ow and let's not forget our little buddy’s who came out at night; the gecko’s.
So there was some eye contact thru out the evening and after a while there was some body contact. The evening became night and the lights where turned off, everybody had gone to bed.
Where I slept....in a hammock in the strong arms of a handsome Indian, under a palm tree overlooking the sea!We talked for hours about his life and my life. Two complete different worlds.
It felt like we where the only ones there. The only other thing I could hear besides out voices was the ocean and the wind going thru the leafs of the palm tree's.
Until....really early in the morning. When the family got up to prepare breakfast and we heard some giggling.
So besides the giggling of other people it was they most perfect place and way to wake up. For me it could have lasted for ever......
