Freeing the Nipple on a Yacht in the Adriatic (Just Casually)

c3

Now that’s a title I never thought I’d see on The Runaway Diaries but here we are.

One of the things I’d recommend most for young people in their 20’s is to do a sail. Whether it be in Croatia, Greece, Turkey, Italy, you name it, if you’re an avid traveller or perhaps just want to see more of the world, taking part in a sail tour should be at the top of your list.

After hearing about various companies I decided to go with MedSailors; they sounded more chilled than some of their competitors and I loved the idea of having fewer people on the boat. Don’t get me wrong, I love a party and to socialise but the idea of drinking constantly and partying around the clock didn’t really appeal. I must be growing up.

Before we get into it, I’d like to point out that I’m in no way affiliated with MedSailors; I just had a genuinely fantastic time on the boat and would recommend them to anyone who is looking to meet some new people, eat some good food and enjoy both the relaxation and the partying sides to a holiday.

Anyway, where was I?

Croatia had been on my (very long) list of places I wanted to travel to for a quite some time and after saving my pennies and then rubbing them together, I booked my sail and was off to the land of sun and sea. Without harping on too much and boring you all to tears I thought I’d round up my experience with my top 3 highlights of the trip.

5. Partying in Hvar

I love a party as much as the next man and if it’s a party you’re after, look no further than Hvar. Famous for it’s epic nightlife, Hvar definitely wont disappoint; catch the sunset at beach bar Hula Hula and then continue your night on into the early hours with too many clubs to choose from.

4. Daily swims in the Adriatic

As much as I love London, this sun and sea deprived Australian was craving some time spent in the ocean and Croatia definitely delivered. About twice a day on average the boat docked so that we could jump off the sides and swim in Croatia’s crystal clear waters, perfection.

3. Exploring the national park in Mljet

    c6

Mljet (don’t even think about asking me how to pronounce that) was one of the islands we stopped off on on the sail and although it was quiet, especially compared to the likes of Hvar, it was gorgeous. Admittedly, I was feeling quite unwell (too much laying out in the sun) and to say I struggled riding my bike up the hill to get to the national park would have been an understatement however the view waiting for me at the end was absolutely worth it.

2. Roaming around Korcula’s narrow streets

c2

Aside from Split and Dubrovnik, Korcula was at the top of my list of favourite places in Croatia. It’s narrow alleyways and rustic charm made for a perfect afternoon of aimless wondering. If you’re up for a drink (or five) with a view, check out Massimo cocktail bar. Set atop an old fort, the climb to the top may be less than ideal (a ladder is involved at one point), the views and cocktails are worth it.

1. Freeing the nipple with new friends

Without sounding like a walking, talking cliche the best part of my Medsailors experience was spending time with 8 fantastic humans and making new friends. For all solo travellers out there such as myself, there is no need to worry about feeling alone or awkward on these tours as you’re going to meet some pretty great people, trust me. So with that, let me leave you with this image of me and some of these said friends showing Croatia what us Australian’s have to offer (admittedly, I don’t have much to offer in the way of breasts but it was fun getting them out anyway).

    The rear doors open rearward so no more struggling to fit things in around the B pillar.
    The new scanner is scheduled to be operational in November
    2011. Trim levels are base, SLE, SLT, and Z71,
    each adding more standard features and refinement as
    you go up the line.

    The rear doors open rearward so no more struggling to
    fit things in around the B pillar. But with the broad hood
    expanse stretching out front, there is no question when you are behind the wheel that you have a big, big vehicle at your command.
    There were the side integrated bumper steps, which I am really pleased about and there is LED lighting in the bed area.

    Its laborious to avoid the solar at instances, so one can usually not
    do a lot in that aspect, but with stress there’s plenty of issues to do.
    Take up yoga, use enjoyable candles, listen to calming music and different stuff.

    I got to see an early sizzle reel for the film at CinemaCon and was not impressed at all I’m
    a big fan of Dwayne Johnson and most everything he does, and I reluctantly admit
    that I watched the original television show as a kid and was entertained by it.
    And I do believe that Baywatch has the potential for a Lord/Miller-style movie reboot, making fun of what the
    franchise has become known for.

    Usually the exercise range from lightweight workouts like yoga and Pilates,
    to heavier ones like crossfit, gymnastics and aerobics.

    Also, distorted views of what ‘getting too big’ is exactly,
    are a worry. The main aim of Crossfit is fitness in all domains namely strength, power, stamina, flexibility, agility,
    coordination, speed, balance and accuracy.

    For instance I do Crossfit so I generally stick with products such
    as Progenex, I like to follow their Youtube channel in order to keep on top of whatever new products
    they have, if they fit my diet I order them in. It
    helps in building strength, power, agility and
    speed in lesser time compared to normal gym exercises.

    The Kangaroo pocket, another throwback design, allows heat-holding, which
    also gives out a laid-back appeal.

    Having read this I thought it was rather informative. I appreciate you spending some
    time and energy to put this informative article together.
    I once again find myself personally spending way
    too much time both reading and leaving comments.
    But so what, it was still worthwhile!

    It might even become somewhat of a weight if you contemplate
    it. The release of the communications requested in this FOIA will nudge open a
    door to the inner sanctum of the High Priests of green-think in the EPA, as well
    as provide much-needed insight into the EPA’s operational allies amongst environmental NGOs and associated non-profit advocacy groups.
    The White House indicated that the president felt the need
    to personally lobby the Senate against Senator Hoeven’s amendment because it
    did not provide for a means of review by appropriate agencies of the federal government.
