The Delos Diaries Part 20: “Love on Delos.”

There have been many ways I have thought about starting this sentence. I’ve started in so many ways and in different places, scenarios, maybe at the start- maybe at the end. But I had always had in my mind to start in the middle.

The Delos Diaries: Part 18 “Slow and Low, Liz!”

We’ve been here just over a week now in St Helena. I knew when I landed here that I was always supposed to come to this place and I deeply feel that more than anything. But I am already feeling the stirrings of restlessness to be back on the ocean. We’ve explored the land and…
