The Ship Has Sailed


It always feels like the holiday is truly over when you post the last of your vacation snaps! I don't feel quite ready to finish talking about and looking at Greece pictures; it's almost as if I can hold onto that sunshine and relaxed feeling through the pictures for a few more days (or weeks)...Of course home isn't so bad and while a week on yacht in the sea is heavenly, I'm sure the charm of your tiny cabin would wear off eventually and the usual longings for home and a normal bed would catch up with you! So, we have left Greece and our MedSailors crew without the typical post-holiday tan, but with a few bug bites, souvenirs, and a score of memories. This Greek trip might be over, but I highly doubt it will be our last sailing holiday. We were beyond charmed by our visit to Croatia last year, also with MedSailors, and Greece has only whet our appetite for more islands and yachts! It's such a unique way to travel and see a country that I can't recommend more. MedSailors just listed some additional holiday bookings for September and October in Italy and I'm so tempted to try to book a second holiday (as unrealistic as it would be for us)! Summer forever! Honestly though as unlikely as an autumn sailing trip would be for us, I'm seriously looking at the MedSailors routes we haven't done yet for next summer. You get to see so much more of a country than going to one location, but also all of the work/hassle of traveling around independently is taken out of the trip. Instead of lugging your belongings from one ferry to the next to hop the Greek islands, booking a different hotel or Airbnb every night, you get to leave all of your things on your yacht and be skippered around everywhere with stops for swims and freshly-made meals. It takes a lot of the guesswork and pain out of traveling while still letting you travel and explore and see loads. We'll go on non-sailing holidays in the future, but for one week most summers, I'd definitely like to try to sneak some sailing in!
Speaking of packing for sailing--this little mini dress was something I picked up specifically for my holiday. It's not the most practical for the weather back home, but I love the breezy style and big embroidered sleeves--lightweight enough to keep me cool in the heat, but good coverage to protect my arms and shoulders from the sun where I'm most prone to burn. Of course the first day I wore it I spilled some balsamic vinegar on the front of it before I even had a chance to leave the boat! The stain washed out (mostly!) so I'll probably be wearing this on more beach days in the future. This specific color sold out at the shop I got it from, but I hunted down several similar dresses in different colors but the same style to link to. I mean, the white version of this dress is also so gorgeous, although probably even more dangerous to wear around potentially staining foods!

  4. I really enjoy your series on Greece, all the photos are so beautiful. I know what you mean why feeling like your vacation's coming to an end when you finish going through the photos. Luckily for me, I don't do that 'till months after I get home... so imagine. I get to be abroad half a year or longer later! ;)

    1. Aw thank you! I'm a little bummed some people missed posts b/c the Bloglovin issues because I really liked some of the pictures we got! And yes, stretch that holiday as long as possible :p

  5. I absolutely love how you matched your locations in Greece! Do you think you could share a little about your packing process one day? What kind of research do you do, how do you choose what clothes to take etc.? Not just for this trip, but in general - I think you always look great when you're travelling, so it would be an interesting read:)

  6. That's an amazing vacation.

    Makes me wish we had something like Medsailors that did this thru the Great Lakes region in the states. It would be fun to do.

    As for the stain, I totally understand your frustrations with stains coming mostly out. Last week tho a friend suggested trying Biokleen for set in stains. I took my shirt & soaked it with 2 tablespoons of the Biokleen & boiling water over night. Than washed normally, the stain is gone. I probably sound like an advertisement, but I was Amazed at how well it worked.
