When your best friend invites you along sailing with her family, it is most certainly an offer you can’t refuse.
Particularly when it involves exploring Greece.
Blue skies, clear waters, aimless exploring of coves and endless Greek salads.
If you’ve been with me from the beginning of my blog then you’ll know I went on a similar trip 2 years ago. We sailed around the Northern Sporades of Greece with a company called Sunsail as part of a flotilla (sailing and meeting with the same 8 boats each night).
This year we were to freesail around a selection of the Ionian islands in Greece: Lefkada, Kefalonia, Ithaca and Meganissi.
Heathrow to Preveza, Preveza to Nidri and Nidri to our boat, we arrived safetly and to the clearest of skies.
Before we could set sail, we had to work out where on earth we were heading. A freesail means that you make up your own route and are FREE to SAIL wherever takes your fancy. Or… whatever floats your boat ;).
Accompanying us for the team meeting were a selection of iced coffees. Freddo cappuccinos to be exact…
LOVING the heart detail… i reckon they saw me coming?
After deciding our first port of call we headed to the boat and got our selves settled in.
Introducing you to… Bunny Girl. Yes, thats what our boat was called.
Our sailing boat slept 6, a spacious double bed at the front of the boat and two small double at the back which you can see below…
More than enough room for an adventure.
The first night we headed across the bay to a stunning Taverna on the water. I failed you guys as a blogger and completely forgot to take a photo, WAH.
But those of you that are with me on snapchat (molliebylett) will have seen how beautiful it was.
We set sail for our next destination, remaining on the Island of Lefkada but heading south…
With a lunch stop at Mikros Gialos on the way…
08:00 Dinner in the port
05.45 Run up the mountain to watch the sunrise.
09:00 Breakfast in Sivota
11:00 Refilling with water ready to set sail.
STAY TUNED FOR THE NEXT DESTINATION… IT’S MY FAVOURITE SPOT!
