Live on a Yacht for a Week

September 11, 2015 — by Griffin Thall

We spent a week aboard a luxury yacht sailing the Aegean Sea with #LBWYachtLife and it was nothing short of stellar. With 27 excited soon-to-be-besties from all over the world, 2 countries, 1 on-board DJ and endless #nofilter sunsets, we can’t wait until we’re back at sea.

As we watched the sun dip behind the castle in Bodrum, Turkey, the sky turned into a pastel party of color. We sipped on our welcome flutes of champagne and played the name game with everyone else on the boat. In total, our yacht mates consisted of a bunch of rad Australians, a few awesome Americans and a sprinkling of cool Canadians.

Each morning, we woke up in a new Mediterranean paradise. Beachfront iced coffees in Kos, wakeboarding at Eli Beach in Rhodes, market shopping in Simi, exploring dormant volcanoes in Nisyros, quick ocean dips in Datça and a few onboard dance parties in our own private bays.

Our week with LBW was the perfect balance of exciting nightlife, cultural exploration and living that laid back yacht life. We made new travel buddies from around the world, ate delicious food, got some new tan lines and partied until the sun came up. Thanks to the people at LBW for having us, we’ll be back soon!
