Jake & Bas Appear in Florida Travel + Life

Cover of May/June 2008 issue of Florida Travel + Life MagazineWe discovered recently that two of The Traveling Richters, namely myself and Bas, had our picture in a recent issue of Florida Travel + Life magazine. It was in the May/June 2008 issue (cover pictured at right).

The occasion of our inclusion was an article on page 107 by publisher Carolyn Pascal about Kids Sea Camp, a program which we first participated in during its inception in Curacao some years back with our friend Margo (the owner of the Kids Sea Camp program). Most recently, we spent Thanksgiving week in 2007 with Margo at Kids Sea Camp in Fiji. Carolyn Pascal (another long time participant) was there and snapped a picture of Bas and myself coming out of the water after a nice shore dive – a dive on which Bas, aged 10 at the time, saw his first ever shark while diving.

Below is a photo of the article page – that’s Bas and me in the upper right corner.

Our Journey Commences

October 20th, 2007 at 8:49 am (AST) by Jake Richter

We left Bonaire at approximately 7:50am this morning on American Eagle flight 5055, starting a nearly 8 week journey that takes us to Los Angeles later today, then Tahiti a couple of days later.

In Tahiti, we board a cruise ship for an 11-day cruise via Moorea, Bora Bora, and Kiritimati to the Hawaiian islands.

We will then spend another 10 days island hopping, with time on Maui, Hawaii, and Oahu.

From Oahu, it’s back to Los Angeles for a couple of days (during which I will need to be deposed for a patent case I am a testifying expert for).

And then we join our friend Margo Peyton and her family, as well as dozens of others for a flight to Fiji to spend Thanksgiving week there as part of Margo’s Kids Sea Camp program.

After our week on Castaway Island with the camp, we then move on to Viti Levu, the big island of Fiji for another week and a half of exploration before flying back to Los Angeles and spending a handful of days in Santa Barbara at a resort with my brother and his family.

And as our trip winds down, we’ll spend a few days in Miami doing our Christmas shopping before returning home to Bonaire in the middle of December.

Photos will be posted whenever I have some time and an Internet connection.
