At that time, I will sail towards the Bahamas, Cuba, Mexico and will visit the majority of Islands while heading towards Panama. Thereafter, the theres and how, and who are unknown.

Interests include; sailing, diving, hiking, fine wine and liquors, fishing, biking, doing nothing, etc mainly all and none... For additional info please email
