12 Hours in Barcelona

    What would you do for a day in Barcelona?
Even if you've been before a couple of times and you might of visited everything already, a sunny day and a good BA offer it can never be refused.
     A walk around the Gothic Quarter (who earned the name of the Roman Village back in the days), memorable lunch with mom and some time spent on the beach watching the regatta of Barcelona just made my day.
                               Beautiful workshop day in Barcelona!

If you planning an overnight trip and you need access to the most exclusive places in the City, then I recommend you to use Axel Barcelona Guest List Services. Really professional and  hard working team provides priority entrance in the most crowded venues.

Yours, ASalalidis

The Irish Adventure | Visit Cork, Ireland

I just 'luuuve' it when I'm visiting a new place and it impresses me to another extend. Not really planning on writing about Cork in my travel-business to Ireland this week, but the people's passion for life, the hospitality and the good aura of the city didn't allowed me not to. By chance I have booked an impressive hotel, 'The Kingsley', had a generous driver, a long waited afternoon at the SPA and the yummiest dinner on 2016 by far at 'Il Padrino' Ristorante (Cork City is having the fame of decent restaurants) . Let me tell you one thing about 'Il Padrino', I haven't had 'goosebumps' eating since Santorini to be honest (not even on South of France). Absolutely fantastic, something that gives me a good feeling thinking on my yachting lifestyle experience this Summer on Amalfi Coast. Spiedini, fresh mozzarella di buffalo and a Sicilian Pinot Grigio sent me to the Moon and back. Ah, not to forget the complimentary frozen limoncello. Finally understood that doesn't cost you anything to pay more attention to your daily living details.


 First impression: loved Cork, very cosy city even if the taxi driver was yawning while singing on the way back (laugh out loud).


See you in Barcelona this weekend ;)

Yachting Lifestyle | 2016 Summer Trend

              It became already a tradition spending my summer holidays on a boat. Sailing, yachting, fishing, racing, anything can be fun as long as is well organised. Yacht holidays are not just for the rich and famous anymore, New York Times ensures us. Each one of you can transform a basic holiday into a holiday of a lifetime.
            A new report shows that a quarter of the charter companies have pulled out a fleet of hundreds of boats ready for global destinations this year, the most approached ones being  Southern Italy, Greek Islands, South of France and the Virgin Islands. Let’s face it; no other destination can compete with the glamourous Europe’s Coasts.
My destination for the Summer 2016 :
  Southern Italy on a Jeanneau Sun Odyssey 509.

Yachting on Amalfi Coast 
The plan looks as following: 2 Boats – Napoli - Procida - Ischia - Ponza – Capri – Positano - Amalfi - Sorrento – pasta - good wine - seafood - pasta again - lots of sunshine – good music – 8 Days –and.. back to Napoli.  Ah not to forget Etna, Stromboli and Vesuvius volcanoes that are in a constant state of activity. 

As attention to detail on the boat was always one of my skills, below you have few of: 
Professional Services requirements and services for a successful holiday on our boats:
·         Food table should be spotless and food arrangements should impress.
·        Shoes are never allowed on-board.
·        No plastic cutlery or dishes | sometimes plastic glasses can be accepted for safety reasons on the decks.
·        Always use fresh fruits juice for cocktails, this way we avoid potential sea sick from alcohol.
·        Vegetarian menus can be arranged.
·        Fresh seafood can be ordered.
·        First aid always must be presented at the beginning of the journey (headache tablets, seasickness, food poisoning/charcoal tablets and sunburn cream).
·        Lennon must be refreshed prior boarding and towels in good condition (not colour gone from the sun).
·        Ensure priority entry for lunch and dinner restaurants.
·        Our Captain will always be able to talk about the cultural side of the sit.  
·        Music facilities and preferential play lists on request.
·        Colours on board can be customised on request, corporate branding can be possible, as long as it doesn't bring damages.
·        Schedule can always be tailored on the run.

Trips can be upgraded with beautiful residences and catering on request.
                                                  Can’t wait to tell you all about it!
