David and I planned a last minute trip to Croatia, and I use the term ‘plan’ here very loosely. We actually booked it through True Traveler, a company that pulls a bunch of set trips that are currently available from various companies online to assist you while choosing your perfect adventure. We went with the Croatia Sailing trip via Topdeck Travel. There were 20 of us on the boat, all under 30 and a common interest in traveling all over the world. The majority were from Australia, however there were others from the USA, UK, New Zealand and Canada.
We landed in Split the morning after my final exam for the semester in perfect sunshine and set sail for the next week. Our first stop was for a swim break, jumping off the ship from either of the two levels. Of course David climbed up to the tallest point on the boat to jump. We set anchor in the sea just offshore as sea urchins cling to the rocks in the shallow areas. They are deceiving in that they look nice and fluffy from above the water, however they are like glass shears if you step on one. The first night we docked at Milna, a small fishermen village. We watched a beautiful sunset, the perfect kick off to our relaxing week of sailing around some of the islands of Croatia.
