After a big night in Dubrovnik, we had a cruisey day swimming off the coast of Makarska. Everyone continued to show off their jumping skills (I politely declined) and floated serenely around the boat on cute floaties. Eventually though, after much harassment, I jumped from the second floor of the boat (there are three floors).… Read More "Sailing Croatia – Makarska"
After an awesome day in Mjet, we woke the next morning sailing into Dubrovnik... also known as Kings Landing! *girly squeal* We all excitedly jumped off the boat, onto a rickety old bus (holy shit Croatian drivers are insane) and made our way into Old Town.

After our ferry from Italy, we jumped on our BusAbout yacht in Split for a week of sailing. We spent our first day motoring out of split and getting to know everyone on the boat. There was about 30 of us in total. Matt and I were in one of four rooms above sea level,… Read More "Sailing Croatia – Hvar & Mljet"

It was glorious after a day of travelling. Cinque Terre, Italy [caption id="attachment_2276" align="aligncenter"… Read More "Exploring Europe – Cinque Terre"
Rapallo is a coastal town in the province of Genoa, northern Italy. We chose this spot as it was super close to Portofino - just a quick ferry ride - without the outrageous prices. We chose to stay at Italia e Lido Hotel. It was a lovely hotel at an amazing price, right on the… Read More "Rapallo, Santa Margherita & Portofino"
We arrived in Italy pretty late in the afternoon, and we had been saving ourselves for an Italian lunch. We stopped for lunch at a big piazza for pizza. Just what we needed. Afterwards we had a walk around to get our bearings and digest the pizza. We got back to our room, unpacked and… Read More "Exploring Europe – Turin"
Would you believe that the first thing we did when we arrived to Barcelona was go to the hotel gym? We were staying at the Novotel, and were obviously feeling guilty about all the indulgent food we ate in France. I can tell you that a 5km run on the treadmill just about killed me.… Read More "Exploring Europe – Barcelona!"
