I have got a crew position on a boat headed out for a several year circumnavigation expedition. I hope to be on it at least 6 months if not a year.

It's first headed to Cuba, Bahamas, Panama...

Can anybody share with me what the children in these areas cherish? I love bringing small gifts that are meaningful to them.

I am new to cruising life. I quit my job, sold my house and left the Bay Are to live aboard with my significant other in Mexico. A few months into the voyage, he had a change of heart and went back to his ex.

While I did not get the man, he did give me a huge gift, the gift of a new perspective. It turns out, I love living aboard and I'm suited well for it. I like the simplicity of having only what you really need and the solitude of the lifestyle on the water. Getting back to life's basics has a way of positively recalibrating one's outlook.

So, if anybody can give me tips on what the kids like in various areas, that would be really helpful.

Candy always makes kids smile. A few bucks worth is good for a bunch of happy kids.

Re: Cuba

Pleasant story you have there and good of you to think of children. Before heading to Mexico I would stop by goodwill and grab a few trash bags full of clothing for all ages, and kites with string for the kids. Everyone happy.
