Caribbean Sailing Port Rio Dulce

People who dream of living on Sailboats may know of Rio Dulce, Guatemala, this is one of my dreams, therefore I came to Rio Dulce to chase my dream. I am in the living business, and search for places on this small planet that allows me to live my dreams.

Rio Dulce has two large lakes, many miles from the ocean, the live aboard sailors park their boats in these lakes safe from hurricanes.

"If you live a life of make-believe, your life isn't worth anything until you do something that does challenge your reality. And to me, sailing the open ocean is a real challenge, because it's life or death."
- Morgan Freeman

I have dreamed of living on a sailboat for years, and I still have many questions. I get very seasick, and worry about this, but I think maybe being lonely is a bigger problem. The reason I would live on a Sailboat would be to have the same closet, shower, and toilet for a year or two. I already have wandered the planet for 12 years, nothing new about that.

I would want a sailboat between 35 and 45 feet, something I can sail myself, enough head room to walk, and a great dinghy. I would try to live on the hook as much as possible, this would save great sums of money, my hotel room yearly budget would be applied to the cost of the buying the boat.

Travel is about living in places, and the people you meet in these places. There are places along the ocean, up on mountains, and in the plains. The idea of sailing between islands in the Caribbean or South Pacific has a lure. I am not a hermit, I need people, and contrary to the idea of sailing, I believe live aboard sailors spend more time at port than at sea, therefore I need a map of all the ports where I can live, even more than I need to know how to navigate. If I am going to live in ports, I want to know, where the safe and happy people ports are located.

From Sea to Shining Sea

"O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
God shed his grace on thee
And crown thy good with brotherhood
From sea to shining sea!"

- America the Beautiful

The world is a beautiful place, I do hope my friends and family can understand this and leave the mall, and stop playing on the Internet or cell phone long enough to feel what I feel.

Thank You,
