Sailing with friends in Balearics

If you were with several friends and wanted to dance until dawn, you win. (This island simply got better and better.)
The countryside Balearics may seem peaceful and calm, but the locals joke that every rock on Sukosan holds a hidden cannon. In fact, there are 13 kilometers of atomic bomb and submarine tunnels on the isle. We went into among them that looked out onto the sea. But it was time to play with the waters. We found a submarine tunnel jump off and to swim into and cruised about Palma de Mallorca. (That is a deep, deep plunge, and I didn’t try it.) We took a dingy into the blue grotto off Ugljan supervised by an officious, thuggish man who asked for a nominal but irritating for charter in Balearics.
“entrance fee.” I was so happy we chartered a yacht! We dropped anchor within an empty cove and sat in the sun, playing music very loudly, leaping off the boat’s side. We failed to uncover WiFi and discussed and rested, read novels.

Hello Croatia

They is supposed to appeal to an older bunch with more genteel travel tastes and needs, while still coming in at a reasonable price point. We’d be sailing from Sibenik in the early morning, so my husband and I flew in the night to meet the crew, the other three passengers, and our hosts. Dinner was a grand seafood banquet at a lovely restaurant on the marina. Lots lots of local spirits like Maraskino cherry brandy that is deathly. Interesting yacht rent is great to see.
The less I say about my utter misery on this part of the journey, the better. I appeared as we were pulling into the beautiful seaport at Sukosan. Calm blue waters, cream-coloured stone buildings in the background with terra cotta roof tiles, green hills a proud church steeple in the centre,. I felt much better.
The house Villa Serena, consisted of shabby elegant country decor in soft pastels, three floors of overstuffed sofas, and a balcony overlooking the harbor. It was time. 100 yards walked to the edge of the seaport, waded in, and splashed an hour away. The opening festivities for Fort George kicked off in the Port of Sukosan in the day sun.
