When we reached Malaysia, we had the opportunity to meet a sailboat captain. Thanks to him, we learned the basics of sailing and discovered the islands of Tioman and Redang – spectacular islands located east of peninsular Malaysia. On the list: dream beaches with white sand, surrounded by coconut trees, lush vegetation and turquoise water in which we spent hours swimming!
A day at the beach
When we arrived in Hong Kong by the sea in the middle of the night, we dropped the anchor off a semi-wild, semi-industrialized island called Lamma Island. From the boat, we watched fascinated the island’s busy fishermen on their small boats, wondering if we were actually in Hong Kong… When after a few months temperatures became bearable (unlike the city life, which had become unbearable), we remembered Lamma and decided to give it a go.
While talking to Vincent, a French traveler in Iran, he advised us to visit absolutely Hormuz island. “What is so special about this island?” “You will see…”. Done! Our decision was taken: we will camp on Hormuz and discover the island by ourselves! Landed on Hormuz, we found ourselves in a very simple village, inhabited by men with sun-kissed skin and veiled from head to toe women… Surrounded by tuk-tuk, lost under an overwhelming heat, we quickly left the village to explore this island and its secrets!
What to see, on the Bulgarian Black Sea shores? That is the question! Always helped by the locals and their good advice, we went to explore the whole Bulgarian Black Sea coast. Ancient cities, incredible beaches, mud and salt water baths… We tell you everything you need to know to enjoy the Bulgarian Black Sea coast and make your stay in Bulgaria a success!
Imagine an azure blue water, a white sandy coast, snorkeling, flat rocks as a diving board, a secret thermal spring… No, you are not dreaming: we are not in the Caribbean but in Europe, in Halkidiki in Greece to be precise! Follow us, we will guide you right to the paradise!
There are so many islands and islets in Croatia: say in a simple way, choice for visiting are endless! And to have visited some of them, we have to say that Croatian islands are all appealing… Choice is going to be difficult! For us, the opportunity to put our bags down in Orebic led us to visit the Peljesac peninsula and Korcula island. This small detour in our route plan was well worth it: a quieter destination, but just as fantastic!
During our Croatian journey, it was impossible for us to miss the Dalmatian coast and its beautiful cities such as Zadar, Sibenik, Split, Ston (and Mali Ston) nor to avoid the must-see Dubrovnik, made famous thanks to the cinematic art. If we didn’t have the opportunity to visit Zadar and its famous sea organ, we could really enjoy our trip along the Adriatic Sea!
Travelling through the south of Albania, towards Greece, we discovered what locals here call the “Albanian Riviera”: a beautiful coast, where mountains meet the Adriatic Sea, offering unique panoramas with endlessly azure blue waters and cliffs hiding some secret white sandy beaches…
