I came to Bonaire with a man I barely knew. I met him at a yoga festival less than a week before he agreed to come with me to an island he’d never heard of with a woman he’d spoken to for less than an hour.
I trust my gut.
I have a good intuition for people.
I can tell when someone is inherently kind, safe, helpful.
I was invited to Bonaire by the incredible family that owns and runs Sorobon Beach Resort. They invited me because they felt that this little island that they adored with all of their hearts needed to be shared with the world. “We are on the radar for all of the kite and windsurfers,” they explained, “But no one knows Bonaire as a wellness destination. Just being in the warm water is so healing!”.
The hospitality and generosity provided by everyone at Sorobon Beach Resort was remarkable. They even encouraged me to come with a friend. So I did… well sort of.
I reached out to dozens of friends and none of them could make it.
So on a whim I asked a stranger.
To my shock, he said yes.
Just 3 days before we left, he agreed to come.
What happened? We had an awesome time. We both came with an open mind and an attitude of “this is going to be a really great and fun trip.” So it was.
We came to share Bonaire with the world, to take photos, to experience this place as a wellness destination.
That’s exactly what it was.
