Cartagena to Portobelo – Trip 2

21 06 2011

Back to the San Blas we go and we didnt think it could get much better…. But throw a group of 12 Aussies, a Welsh and a Canadian on a boat and you get a bloody good time!

It all started when catching 6 tuna, a massive barracuda and a rainbow runner on the passage so guests enjoyed fresh sahsimi and tuna steaks for lunch and dinner!! Its times like these that make me wish I ate seafood, mind you I did try the cooked tuna and it wasnt too bad at all!

The fisrt night in the San Blas the guests hit the cocktail bar pretty hard and almost drank it dry! This resulted in Matty and I venturing into a local village on one of the more inhabited islands in search of ice and rum.  The locals are so helpful and friendly even if they can’t understand a word we are saying – the little kids follow you around with the biggest smiles on their faces which makes you think that our visits are as special to them as they are for us! Mission accomplished and bar re-stocked in time for the guys to enjoy a Coco Loco in the jacuzzi for lunch.

On the 2nd last night the guys decided a pirate party and drinking games were on order for the night. Scarf’s, eye patches, eye liner and rum punch came out and transformed our boat into a group of rowdy pirates. People were dared to flip of the boat, drink out of a dead fish, dive through hoops and run topless around the boat…….. Just another day at work! 😉
