This was, hands down, the best vacation of my life. This particular Maldivian adventure embodies the meaning of the word ‘vacation’. I believe that I have now experienced actual paradise. So many trips we take are wonderful in sections but fall short of what we originally expected. Hopefully this photographic journey will give you the wanderlust to visit the Maldives yourself. Why choose the Maldives?  The Maldives are located in the Indian Ocean. The climate is tropical, with plenty of sunshine and temperatures around 86F°/ 30C° throughout the year. The Islands […]

The Seychelles is probably on everyone’s bucket list. As part of an Archipelago, it offers great diversity with each Island providing it’s own individual appeal. The French are infatuated with La Digue, riding around on their bikes as if they are at home on the sleepy Islands of Noirmoutier or Ile de Ré. Praslin and Mahé have larger Island appeal and there are several small Islands set aside for conservation where you can hike and enjoy the wildlife. The surreal scenery, remote location and gorgeous water are worth every ounce of hassle […]

Arriving at Hvar was the highlight of our trip. We sailed into the harbor passing perfect, tiny Croatian Islands that you could almost have to yourself for the day, however, we were looking forward to living a little ‘large’ for a couple of days.

Our plan was to moor in the main harbor, we were only here for two nights but it is almost impossible to […]

Social Media has taken over our lives. We post, hashtag, follow and un-follow, tweet, re-tweet, pin and re-pin and get high on the feedback. Is this all about self worth? Do we need constant adoration to feel good about our lives? Are small snippets of information all we can absorb, have we, in fact, turned into ‘skimmers’?  Are we also skimming over our lives? Imagine an entire day with out any Social Media. Is your life any better living in a state of constant connection? Do you feel relief when […]

Bisevo Island is a quick stop for checking out the Blue Grotto, a fabulously illuminated cave that you enter from under the rock via your dinghy! Very exciting! We made the stop at Bisevo on the way to Stonica beach, Vis Island. Stoncica is a small cove, stunningly set in between two cliffs. The water here is turquoise and clear. Truly paradise. The approach to the Blue Grotto is dramatic, great photo op’s and a keen sense of adventure are part the Bisevo experience. You pay for the cave at the […]
