Diving The Similan Islands

There are those moments, in life, when you do things for love.  This diving trip was one of them.  The idea of doing 14 dives over 4 days sounded a little too hectic for me.  I’m a two dives a day kind of girl.  I like fresh air.  But then again, I LOVE nature.  And…

Train trip: Bangkok–> Chiang Mai

I can quite comfortably say that we have covered every single mode of transport that Thailand has had to offer.  And this was one of the more interesting, throwing some great people across our paths, zero sleep for me and one very insistent Thai service stew.  I am trying to work out whether I would…

Fifty shades of B L U E

Travel tip #1: Go to Sardinia Travel tip #2: Head straight to Cala Gonone Travel Tip#3: Hire a Motorboat It’s so easy, it cost us 70 euro for the ENTIRE day, we could drive it ourselves and they threw in a free cooler box.  Legend. The company we went through was called Skipper, and they…

Camping on the coast- Cala Gonone

Oh man was I need of a weekend away from the boat.  I can’t say it was anyone else’s fault but my own, but I was just feeling ratty, tired and annoyed.  Boat life, sometimes it is the best thing ever, but some times it can feel incredibly claustrophobic and then throw in a little…

Sunshine & Pedalos in Corfu

  My only previous reference to Corfu was Gerard Durrel’s My Family and Other Animals, where the lead character lived on the Island.  For some reason the book stuck with me.  We were lucky that for a 2-week period in July, we were docked in Corfu, right in the centre of the town and right…

A quick “pull in” to Bonifacio

Our Captain and Deck crew made a very impressive docking into the Port of Bonifacio for  24 hrs of playtime for the guests!  Such a beautiful part of the Med. Watch our timelapse!    

Albania- the most random fuel stop

    Look, I’ve been to a couple of random spots in my life, but never more random than a fuel stop in Albania, of all places.  We were in one of those fortunate positions, where our guests had jumped off for a rare few days.  The crew were obviously elated, until we were told…

I’m back….

It’s been so long since I have written a blog post that I have actually been petrified to click the blog tab on my Chrome Tab Bar.  Not only because I have so many things to write, but also because I am aware that our views have been fast and furiously dwindling, due to SIX…

Bucketlist: Ireland

As I sit here in Antibes, at my favourite cafe, listening to music, tapping my leg to the beats and smiling from ear to ear, I have to be grateful once again to my wonderful Uppa.  Apart from being one of the biggest influences on my life and one of the best people I have…

And then there was Thailand.

It’s been a week.  And if someone told me I had to go home tomorrow, I would have no argument that I have already got my money’s worth.  I was told that I should come here with no expectations and I will leave here with a yoga teacher qualification and a life changing experience.  That…
