Our latest video is now up on our Youtube Channel!
As we continue our sailing around the world adventure and make our way up the Italian coast, we drop in to Ponza for a few days to avoid strong winds blowing from the north.
While we heard it’s a lovely island, we were still surprised how charming it is, but also has a great party atmosphere!
Our latest video is now up on our channel.
We sail to the out-of-this-world Aeolian Islands, a chain of volcanoes extending north of Sicily. We sail to the live volcanic islands of Vulcano – where we swim through underwater sulphur vents and soak in a hot mud bath – and Stromboli, where we are treated to the oldest light show in the Med, exploding lava!
In our latest adventures sailing around the world, we sail to Vis, one of the islands furthest off Croatia’s coast. Being so far from the large centres, it doesn’t get the huge influx of tourists or any cruiseships, leaving it mainly to visiting yachts. We visit the charming village of Komiza and discover the idyllic Diamond Beach.
In our latest YouTube video, we sail to Croatia’s party island Hvar and it’s idyllic islands, the Pakleni Islands.
We visit Hvar Town’s spectacular Venetian fortress that was built with the help of Spanish engineers in the 13th Century, head to some beach bars, and get into some maintenance tasks, including scrubbing Tranquilo clean and fixing El’s feet after stepping into sea urchins.
Continuing our sailing around the world adventure, in our latest video we sail to Zadar where we head inland to visit the world heritage Plitvice Lakes, before sailing back out to the islands of Croatia and the largest bay in the Adriatic, the wild, rugged and beautiful Luka Telascica with its salt lake, Jezero Mir.
We are joined by our friend Kalena and Aiden takes the outboard for a spin for the first time, taking charge of our Yamaha outboard.
