That’s right guys… Cruising around on a yacht in Croatia’s beautiful Adriatic Sea can be so hard that it requires it’s own survival guide. Gosh what a tough life we lead!
No but in all seriousness, if you’re like me and struggle to drink multiple days in a row, or struggle being around people for, well, multiple days in a row, then here’s a few tips for surviving Yachtlife Croatia.
7 Tips For Surviving YachtLife Croatia
1. Start Fresh
Don’t start on the back foot by going out the night before. Remember you have a whole week ahead of partying and exploring. If you struggle with partying for multiple days in a row, it’s best to cool your jets for the few days leading up to the tour. Then go crazy from day one.
2. Take Strategic Nights Off
Don’t feel bad if you feel like you need to take a night or two off. Do what you need to do! I took 2 nights off (and one of those was because we partied all day so I didn’t feel I needed to go out). The mornings after those nights off, I woke up early, feeling great and did some sunbathing; making the most of the day and the activities planned.
3. Sleep In
Your body clock really gets messed up during the tour. We were going to bed at about 4am each morning and waking up at about 10:30-11am each day. And that’s okay! Lunch doesn’t get served till 12-1pm and on shore activities always start after lunch. If you need the sleep in, definitely take it. Let your body embrace the new schedule for the week.
4. Pack Floaties
Swimming in Croatia’s beautiful waters is absolutely refreshing. It’s a great way to wake your body up if you’re feeling a little slow. If you pack a floaty you can just chill in the water for a while without having to worry about keeping yourself afloat. Hangovers can be hard; let the floaties help you with swimming.
5. Take Berocca
Oh my gosh this was a saving grace for me. Maybe you don’t call it Berocca… What I’m talking about are those dissolvable fizzy tablets of vitamins that you mix with water. They give you energy and really help with the hangovers and tiredness. I would have one everyday with lunch…. Or breakfast for those rare few times I was up early enough for it.
6. Pack Painkillers & Cold Medicine
This is essential! Painkillers are needed for the hangovers or if you get aches from long days. The cold medicine will come in handy if you happen to get sick. Remember you are all in close proximity for a week. So if one person gets sick, it can get passed around quickly. Most of our tour had a head cold by the end of the week. All good though- It’s worth it!
7. Have Time To Reset Afterwards
I don’t know how people can fly straight out from YachtLife back to their homes and have work the next day. That shit’s hard. I slept for 3 days afterwards. If you can manage to give yourself a few days to rest and recoup afterwards, your body will surely thank you for it.
