I’m guessing you’re sick of seeing images of hot, summery waveless beaches in Europe. Well, this is my last post from Europe – promise. We’re heading home! We’re missing the groms, and I hear the weather has been amazing in Sydney.
We’ve had an incredible two weeks. Europe in peak season is just so different to anything in Australia. I come here to refresh and open my eyes to the rest of the world. To clarify, I’m not on a PR junket or paid to be here, or anything like that. We’ve written our dream itinerary and will share some of our tips in subsequent posts (if you’re keen).
I will say, sailing the Amalfi coast and surrounding areas was exquisite. It’s like this coast was custom made for cruising. The distances between the islands and key locations are not far – just a couple of hours, and with the sails up, it’s so relaxing. Each stop you’ll be dining at the best seafood restaurants on the planet. You get to see so much more on a boat than you do when travelling on the land as the terrain is hard work on the Amalfi Coast – steps, hills and roads that barely fit cars. I will say, it’s diabolically expensive for Aussies. The Euro is a killer and Greeks and Italians have a special rate card for tourists.
I can’t wait to show you a video of Italy, as I filmed in quite a few locations.
My aerials images are shot from a helicopter (with me in it) and not a drone so I can blow them up huge in the gallery for your loungeroom walls. Also, it’s illegal and extremely dangerous to fly a drone directly over human crowds (e.g. beach) – I see it waaaay too much in Bondi and scares the daylights out of me.
A lot of you guys email me about Croatia – well, that’s booked in for 2019 (by boat).
