  • There are over 1,000 islands dotting the Croatian coast and although it may be impossible to visit them all in one trip, a week of island hopping will give you a nice taste of Croatian life and culture. [Sunshine Blog]
  • Don’t fancy the idea of a cruise vacation? Try a cruise for non-cruisers, like a jaunt on the Star Clipper, which looks nothing like a mega-cruise liner. These grand sailboats unfurl large billowing sails to operate purely by wind power. [BBC]
