Filming and sailing the Dalmatian sea.
Stepping off the bus in Croatia, it dawned on me — this was round two. A year before, I went on a Top Deck tour with my best friends in these very waters, copping endless cocktails, summer rays, and constant banter on our pirate-ship-like vessel. On round two, however, I'd been employed to make a short video of a new tour called Fjaka Sail. This year was the tour's birth year, and they needed promotional material for the years to come. I highly recommend watching the video below before scrolling on!
Now, what was the point of this blog post? Well, if the video hasn't already convinced you to pack your bags and get on a yacht in Croatia, I'm hoping the following images will. First up is the water itself. I couldn't get enough of it. Just picture yourself cannonballing into it from the top deck every morning instead of taking a shower. It really is the best way to wake up.
Next up is the people. The groups are generally pretty mixed, but you will be sailing with a lot of Aussies, Kiwis, English, and South Africans. I might be biased, but people from these countries know how to have a good time.
Wake up. Eat breakfast. Swim. Eat lunch. Swim again. Cross the gangplank and head into town. Head back to the boat and get dressed for dinner in town. Eat dinner in town. Head back to the boat for pre-drinks. Cross that gangplank again and hit the bars and clubs in town. Stumble back. Sleep. Repeat. Each day is basically the same thing, though you go to a new island and town, where there is usually some sort of unique attraction, like wine tasting, historical tours, and whitewater rafting. Long story short, you're living the dream... for a week.
The sunsets over the towns on the Mediterranean topped it off. I'll let the images do the talking.
That was sailing Croatia in a nutshell. If you've read this far without booking your own sail, it may be time to reconsider your life.
