She's currently on a sailboat somewhere in the Pacific.

Potts is writing about her adventure with her friend, Kevin, aboard their 36-foot sailboat, Sunrise, in a blog called "Always Go."

"A ticket to the world is borderless," Potts wrote in the initial post. "It takes imagination, like seeing shapes in puffy clouds no one else can recognize, to come up with a new idea for an adventure. Ideas form and multiply. Tickets are issued. Only a few check-in for the journey of their dreams."

Thanks to her mom, Yvonne Boon, for bringing Potts' blog to our attention.
