Famous for oh so many things, Game of Thrones set? Completed it. Smallest town in the world? Completed it. But many of us know Croatia for its stunning views and diversity. One day you’re exploring Dubrovnik and the city walls the next you’re partying till the sun comes up in some of Croatia’s coolest hidden bars in Hvar. From one of the most instagrammable spots in Europe - Krka Waterfalls to beach days on Zcre beach, home to the world-famous Hideout festival. Croatia’s is the upcoming hotspot for all things summer dreaming. The best way to get around and see the real Croatia? SAILING ON YOUR OWN PRIVATE TRUYACHT, of course. We’re taking Croatia by storm THIS summer...and if you’re not joining us. Well, you really are missing out.

We love Thailand; we’ve all seen the picture’s of the Islands, the long tail boats over crystal blue waters. But what about Northern Thailand? WELL, you haven’t experienced Thailand fully unless you’ve gone North! The action is in the North, from Hill tribe stays and ziplining to bamboo rafting and hot springs. The North of Thailand is WILD. No, really it is. There’s so much to see and do, and with dry weather & warm temperatures, it’s a great place to visit in August. Visit Chiang Mai, where you can zipline through the Jungle & take some time to care for one of Thailand’s most beloved animals - ELEPHANTS. It’s an EL of a good time! If you’re planning on visiting Thailand, make sure you allow some time to visit the North. It’s Thai-refic! ;)
