Sailing the Ionian Islands, Greece

Ryan Clarke, a London based videographer and editor recently put together this beautiful edit of sailing with his family in Kefalonia/Ithica, Greece.

I can say with certainty, that by pressing play on the short film above your day will instantly become better off for it. Play. Press play, then come back and say, "It's a fact! My day did instantly become better off because of it!"

Every element of this makes you feel good inside. The family aspect, the animals, scenery, the colour treatment, cinematography and the sailing of course.

The Mediterranean is about as high up on the list for us as a place can get. We've wanted to go for ages by any means of transport, and now that there's this whole boat thing involved, it may just be closer to happening. Maybe not on this boat, maybe another, maybe not next year, maybe another, but the Mediterranean is sitting comfortably right at the top of the list and between drinking every patio empty and walking every street through so that we will get to know each other well one day.

Vacation Video: Cuban Christmas

My brother and his girl Chantal just got back from a holiday trip. They spent a week between Varadero and Havana, Cuba.

While we didn't spend the holidays together, since we had our own road trip to take care of, it's great to see that they got up to something special like this.

Katy and I plan to sail to Cuba in the near future, although we may head to the southern coast instead of the northern. It was going to be our next sailing trip this spring, but we've decided on a five month trip to Belize and Guatemala instead. 

Enjoy Ryan's video of their Cuban holiday.

Short Film: Home Ground

This short film explores a world, weather and landscape that looks like the exact opposite of where we are. Press play and enjoy the beautiful landscapes between Iceland and Greenland, which somehow makes you want to go get cold and explore the north.

Film Description

Featuring Siggi the Icelandic sailor and Dines the Greenlandic hunter.

Mark Sollors Takes Care of Winter

This is not boat related, and it certainly isn't tropical, but whenever a friend of ours gets up to something like this, I just want the whole world to see it... or at least all six of you here.

What you have here is original Jr. Manboy, and now Handsome Manboy, Mark Sollors going to work on the entire season of winter.

They say, "Winter is coming," but don't worry, Mark just took care of it for you.
