I cannot tell you how grateful I am to have been invited to this trip with Foreo. You must have seen from all of my Instagram posts that it was amazing! I met some wonderful people and had the best time sailing from island to island in the most beautiful country I have ever visited - Croatia. It felt surreal, like the views in front of you must be a dream, because how can that be real?
Let me walk you through what we got up to on the cruise. I am actually editing a vlog at the moment but it's also fun in pictures right?
We started off by sailing to a small island called Fort George, which was very beautiful but I was too tired to focus on the beauty. (2 hours of sleep the night before!) So yeah, I was tired. But i think we all were because we had really early flights, but that didn't stop us from having fun! Then we had to change the plans because the weather wasn't being very welcoming and decided to grace us with the rain. We sailed to Palmizana, which had incredible views of the beach and the sea. That's were I got to sunbathe on the beach and shoot for MTV and Foreo team. I was so nervous but it was so fun! But more on that in the future, when I have the links for you guys.
The next day we took a boat taxi (yes those are actually a thing in Croatia!), so yeah we took a taxi to a nearby town called Hvar. This is the place that made me feel a certain type of way. I dont know, it was something else. The town is so beautiful. The old churches, the little streets, the colours houses, the palm trees. I need to go back asap. I think I liked it so much because people here are not in a rush. They don't need to rush to anything, it's the opposite of London. Also, there aren't that many people in the streets. It's so calm.
Then towards the evening we took a 1 hour bus drive across the mountains to get to a vineyard where we had wine tasting and after that drove to a farm in the middle of nowhere where we had the best dinner with the best view. Just have a look for yourself.
You know those moments in life, when the views are so beautiful, you're so happy and you just want to cry a little? Haha well I hope you do. It was one of those moments. But then we also wanted to cry when it started raining on the way to the bus in the middle of nowhere in pitch black and we were wearing shorts and dresses! haha fun night though! The next day was our last so we sailed to another island which was even more beautiful than Hvar, seemed much older, with very damaged buildings but so beautiful. A moment that stuck with me: we were shooting in little old streets, there was no people, like the town was dead. Also a sunset, so beautiful and warm. And a nun came out of nowhere in her white clothes. Such a precious moment. You probably saw a few pictures in this blog post. That's where we ended the trip, had an amazing dinner and a few drinks before bed. But before that we had a cool little water party in the middle of the sea with many floats. I'm sure you've seen it all over my Instagram! I actually overcame my fear of deep waters and jumped in! I mean, I had to get that picture with the swan! And the pineapple. And the donut.
A huge huge thank you to Foreo team for having me on this trip. I was always secretly dreaming of my first bloggers trip abroad. Where would I go, who would take me? I will do a review of the three products I've been using very soon. If you are still reading this please let me know if you prefer a blog post like this one or a video?
Have a nice Wednesday!
