Island-hopping in Croatia #YachtLife

When Life Before Work Travel asked if I wanted to go on their YachtLife trip, island hopping in Croatia for a week, I’d basically already packed before they finished the sentence. I’ve got this thing with boats you see (here’s a list of six reasons why your next holiday should be on a boat), plus I’ve never been to Croatia and LBW is an ethos I can really get behind.

Bordeaux Banter

Bordeaux is only a one hour and twenty minute flight from Dublin, who knew? Oh, all of you, ok.

Next stop: Yogacruising Ahoi, twice a day yoga on a gorgeous wooden gulet yacht, hiking and swimming, healthy eating, reading and soaking up the sun in Turkey…I can’t bloody wait.
