Dear future partner in crime,
May you be a sparkle to the eye and to the heart who is up for sharing some adventures together. I owe my courage and fearlessness to you.
I love traveling and recently visited St Augustine in Florida. What a beautiful little town full of history! St Augustine is the oldest European settlement in the Americas, founded by the Spanish in 1565. The fort protecting the city, Castillo de San Marco, was built with coquina, a mixture of hardened sand and seashells, which served to protect the settlers from pirates and invaders.
I also scaled the 119 steps to the top of a lighthouse there and saw a great view of the town. The lighthouse keeper would bring a 75 pound pale of lamp oil through each step to the top every two hours (last time i think my stairmaster workout is difficult!). The romantic view that a lighthouse keeper stayed all by their lonesome watching out towards the ocean in solitude while he writes in his journals has been dispelled. He does shifts with others and lives in a nice roomy house at the bottom of the lighthouse with his family. Haha in another life, I may have been a lighthouse keeper.
I would like to see the culture of Brazil and Peru, taste the delicious cuisines of Thailand and Malaysia, and see the northern lights in the Yukon. Where would you like to travel to?
