Nicoleta Milkowski, senior, is gearing up for her most exciting summer vacation to date, which will be primarily spent enjoying life at sea on her very first boat.
Originally from chilly Rhode Island, Milkowski chose Florida as her college destination because of the endless boating possibilities. Like many others, she loves the beach and enjoys being able to take advantage of Florida’s golden coast all year around.
“The beach is [great] fun, but owning a boat just enhances my time here in Boca,” said Milkowski.
Owning a boat provides the means to take an abundance of trips to nearby countries, such as the Bahamas. Milkowski transferred to Lynn in the Spring of 2013 and knew the moment she arrived that she wanted to purchase a boat to be able to accomplish such things and fully take advantage of all Florida has to offer.
“It was always my life long dream to move to South Florida and to buy my very own boat,” Milkowski states.
Since beginning her summer internship, Milkowski has been taking her boat out during the weekends. Being surrounded by deep blue waves after a work heavy week is the perfect relaxation method, according to Milkowski.
To kick off her summer vacation Milkowski and some friends took the boat from Boynton Beach, where she lives, all the way down to the Keys for a weekend.
There are many fun things to do on a boat, wake boarding, tubing or even a giant inflatable banana. Fishing, snorkeling and tanning are some of Milkowski’s favorite activities, but just being with friends and taking a break from everyday life while cruising the ocean waves is the best part of being a boat owner.
“When I am on my boat it is like an escape from life,” she said.
With this in mind, it seems as if Milkowski has found the perfect blend of a unique manner of transportation and relaxation with her boat.
