Why save all your vacation fantasizing for the summer? In fact, why fantasize at all? Many of the world’s most exotic locations are no longer so desirable or accessible. Far from being the exclusive domain of the rich and famous, stunning locations from St. Lucia to Saint-Tropez are today enjoyed by us ordinary folk, as we learn to take advantage of increasingly favorable deals on flights and accommodation, not to mention the bareboat charter / cruise industry and all it has to offer.
Here are some of the destinations that perhaps you’d have been unable to enjoy yesteryear, but you can now explore by virtue of the fast-changing world of travel.
Located just a few miles south of Spain, Morocco has long been an adventurer’s paradise. Starting from northern Morocco make your way to the blue city of Chefchaouen. Here just about every building in the Rif Mountain town is painted blue. Take a brief walk to the town church in order to sip on freshly squeezed orange juice as you feast your eyes on one of the most stunning views of this utterly enchanting town. After your colourful trip to Chef, journey to the historic city of Fez. Here you’ll find the oldest university in the world located in one of the oldest in-tact medinas. If you get lost enough in the UNESCO-protected medina of Fes el Bali you might just find your way to the world-renowned tanneries.
Sailing Around the Caribbean
When we leave our minds to wander we tend to give life to the many what-ifs that leave us paranoid and petrified in our tracks. A Caribbean bareboat charter might sound like an impossible dream to some, but it is in fact a fast-growing alternative break for friends and families, who get the chance to see some of the planet’s most photogenic islands, while enjoying some of the world’s best snorkeling. And even if you have been lucky enough to experience this part of the world before, nothing quite compares to the sense of freedom and magic that a bareboat charter can give you. Amazing waters, amazing fishing, amazing sailing!
