The Yacht Week: Croatia

I spent my birthday in Croatia and we did The Yacht Week which was incredible! I have been wanting to go to Croatia for years! I tried to go in 2015 when I was in Greece before heading to Italy and we didn’t have enough time… last year I actually had a flight booked home from Croatia but decided to stay in Italy longer and save it for another time. So that made Croatia extra special for me because I had to wait for it.

The Yacht Week in particular was amazing. We did the Ultra route and it’s already inspired a few posts (how to pack, what to expect.. I feel like next time I will be a pro!) I have been to concerts but it didn’t occur to me until I was there I’ve never been to a music festival before! So lots of firsts this trip and along the way made friends, had great food, and had many experiences I’ll never forget. It really is the experience of a lifetime!

I enjoyed myself so much I hardly stopped to take pictures so many are borrowed {also so did not want to be that girl dropping her camera overboard haha}. I actually wish I documented more because I don’t want to forget anything but some things you can’t capture in a picture. Like the stars were out of this world – I swear you could see the Milky Way at night on the boat away from city lights. I’ve been in rural parts of Italy where I saw tons of stars but not like this.

If you’re thinking about doing The Yacht Week I absolutely recommend it and I can’t wait to write about it more. Every day I would say, “yesterday was my favorite day” and then we would top it the next day. Here’s a few pics I wanted to share with you guys! ahh I wish I was on the front of the boat right now drinking a glass of champagne watching the sun come up.

    1. It will be amazing! There’s a square in Split that is very historic and beautiful and has many cafe style restaurants we frequented that was my favorite! We went there every day we stayed in Spit It’s by the water called Old Market Square I think out of 6 of the restaurants we ate at 5. haha loved sitting and having coffee or prosecco and people watching for hours. We did some excursions I’ll write about too ๐Ÿ™‚
