Floating Life Concierge would then suggest a visit to Korcula, Vis Island, Komiza, Bisevo, Hvar and Brac. Korcula’s startling blue waters, quiet coves, and secluded bays will entice you for an unforgettable swim while the welcoming town, located on a small hilly peninsula, will enchant you with its narrow stone streets and defensive towers. On Vis Island you will find Nature in a fantastic display with numerous bays and beaches, vineyards, limestone crest hills and valleys, offering peace and tranquillity, with the opportunity to have lunch one of the many small local restaurants with home-made food: lamb, octopus, fresh fish, sheep, goat cheese, along with a glass of local wine and bitters. Do not miss an excursion at the remarkable Blue Cave of Modra špilja, very similar to the more famous Capri Grotta. Hvar is the perfect place to spend an amazing night out in its many disco-clubs and pubs. The island’s flora is a special place, thanks to its fragrant lavender fields, peaceful

villages, and pine-covered hills; its varied activities include diving, underwater fishing in the many nearby smaller islands, and water sports. If you are a windsurfer or a water sports lover, you absolutely cannot miss a visit to the wonderful Zlatni Rat Beach, located in Brac Island! Here you will also find an excellent nightlife (in Milna or Supetar, for example), peaceful and quiet authentic stone villages as Bobovišće, pebble and rocky beaches surrounded with pine forests, and typical local restaurants. Your cruise could conclude in the beautiful Split. Its remarkable Diocletian’s Palace makes the visit absolutely memorable, together with its old town, the majestic cathedral of St. Duje, charming marble streets full of restaurants, wine cellars, cafés and shops, and museums. This is only a tip-of-the-iceberg sample of a tour in Croatia: many more locations, beaches and landscapes are waiting for you, starting from Split and heading towards Slovenia and Italy.

Edelberg

Edelberg

Based in the city of Zug, Edelberg was founded in 2009 and is a luxury pen and accessory manufacturer with the heart and soul of a small family business. A life-long collector of writing instruments, Carlo Naldi launched Edelberg with a desire to create singularly beautiful writing instruments and accessories for the world. He has been joined in this mission by his son Samuel and together they are working to make the world a more tasteful place. For some things in life, ordinary is not enough. Edelberg is anything but ordinary. With a unique way of looking at things, Edelberg is for those wanting something fresh, something different; for individuals who appreciate design that is unique and who delight in owning beautiful objects that are striking and original. Edelberg understands the power of individuality, and this is reflected in our captivating range of Swiss made high-tech writing instruments and Italian accessories. Combining passion, design and innovation, the pieces are as unique as those who own them.

w w w.f l o a t i n g l i f e . c o m

Each concept is brought to life by a team of highly creative minds and then lovingly crafted by skilled artisans at our factory in Geneva, Switzerland. Only the finest and most modern materials are used, including carbon fiber, precious resin and even photo luminescent components from SuperLumiNovaŽ that magically light up after dark – the first time it has ever been used in a writing instrument - as well as more traditional ones such as gold, steel and rhodium. State-of-the-art manufacturing techniques and traditional craftsmanship are employed at every stage to produce the coveted writing instruments with each piece undergoing rigorous quality and durability testing. Edelberg's name was born from two inspirations Edel is in honor of Edelweiss, the white alpine flower that for many is a living symbol of Switzerland. Berg recognizes perhaps one of the first pioneers in "social media", Johannes Gutenberg, the inventor of the printing press.

Le Due Querce

Le Due Querce "Le Due Querce Franciacorta " was astablished in 1978. Le Due Querce is a family-run business, following one man's dream. During the 1970's, Luigi Mensi bought three hectacres of a vineyard and 1 hectacre of an olive grove, his only objective being to create his own wine for his family and friends. During the first years some additional hectacres were re-converted into vineyards, thus realizing his first cellar in 1986. With the first cellar they began to think of the possibility of doing more than making wine only for the family and a few close friends. The turning point came at the end of the 1990's, when Luigi, along with his son Paolo, started thinking about the possibility of marketing their product. On April 1, 2001, Paolo established Le Due Querce and, in 2002, bottled the first year of sparkling wine. Sadly, in 2005 Luigi died prematurely. Paolo dedicated the name of the Franciacorta wines to his his father, as their founder. Today, the entire family lives and works to keep Luigi Mensi's dream alive. Paolo takes the lead personally in taking care of the vineyards and the cellar, always keeping in mind two fundamental principles: genuininess and respect. The first because it captures the principle that distinguished his father Luigi and his wines; the second for the land, which must always be cared for with love and devotion. The company continues to grow with the support of excellent wine experts, as well as Adriano Marchina, a visionary sales and marketing director who knew how to enhance the value of the Le Due Querce brand, presenting it to the world as a high-class product without forgetting for a moment the primary objective: that the geniuinity that distingushed the founder of Le Due Querce, Luigi Mensi, be maintained within the wine itself. w w w.f l o a t i n g l i f e . c o m

The Aeolian Islands The “7 Pearls of the Mediterranean Sea” await you and your guests: beautiful scenarios, active volcanoes, castles, thermal resorts, water sports, and amazing, pristine beaches. Lipari, Salina, Vulcano, Panarea, Stromboli, Alicudi and Filicudi… magical words for magical places with astonishing, incredible landscapes. During your cruise, Floating Life and its Concierge Service is always ready to book an exquisite dinner ashore or to organize an unforgettable excursion. We would like to whet your appetite with just a few words dedicated to beautiful Sicily and the natural wonders of the islands surrounding her. Lipari is the largest and by many considered the most interesting island of the Aeolian Archipelago, as it boasts a charming town with a beautiful baroque Cathedral, an ancient acropolis, walls and fortifications, a necropolis, as well as an archaeological museum. You surely cannot miss a relaxing stroll through the paved shopping ways, savouring fragrant coffee or a pistachio “granita” with a Sicilian brioche. Just south of Lipari, Vulcano will welcome you and your guests with therapeutic hot springs and sulphur mud baths which attract thousands of visitors every year. Vulcano also boasts its famous “Spiaggia Sabbia Nera” (Black-Sand Beach) and trekking excursions around the island’s dormant volcanoes. Salina, included in the World Heritage List and famous for its two inactive volcanoes and its Natural Reserves, is the only Aeolian island covered with blooming vegetation, both in its natural state as well as cultivated for agriculture. In particular, the island’s viticulture has become famous as the only producer of its Malvasia wine, an exquisite white wine with an intense, sweet aromatic bouquet, excellent with desserts. w w w.f l o a t i n g l i f e . c o m

from the mid-day Sun and refreshed by a gentle sea breeze. In the afternoon, having taken full advantage of the ourdoor sundeck and onboard beverage service, we decide to stop at Nonsuch Bay for a barbeque on the beach, perfectly arranged for by the amazing crew. After dinner, lulled by the sound and the gentle movement of the sea, we let Morpheus take over, as each of us retired to our cabins. Upon awakening, the boat is already on its way to the rugged Barbuda, with pristine beaches and a very low human presence. Thanks to the yacht's crew, we managed to reach the beach: white sand, swallowed up what seemed to be an impenetrable mangrove forest ‌ inviting waters teeming with fish. I accepted the invitation at Snapper Arm Hole, where I did my best to do my morning snorkeling. When lunchtime comes around, it's back onboard where the chef has prepared seafood delights which would be the envy of any 5-star restaurant! Once we have finished, we move on to St. Marteen, a well-equipped island for yachts: Simpson Bay Lagoon has 7 dedicated areas for docking. We spend the night here; in the meantime, the crew will take care of buying supplies and fuel for the rest of our cruise. The island is half Dutch and half French, with several casinos, hotels, and shops. Particularly fun are the bars where they prepare drinks using

unusual and colourful Caribbean fruit juices. To give the crew some breathing room, we decide to dine at the Resort's restaurant, La Samanna, one of the new 5-star restaurants with exclusive cuisine and service, and a very rich wine cellar! After dinner we went back onboard and, in the morning, left the Lagoon and headed towards St. Barths, the “Portofino” of the Caribbean. Christmas is coming, and the Commander suggested that we confirm the berth our Broker reserved for us in the port of Gustavia. The island has an incredibly high concentration of prestigious boutiques that invite shopping. We made it in time to witness a spectacular sunset over Shell Beach, where the beach is made up of small pink shells that seem to light up at sunset. We dine at Nikki Beach, the Caribbean version of the more well-known Club Tropezienne and, the next morning, we greet Christmas in the Caribbean. The night before, as we slept, the crew prepared terrific decorations for us, truly creating a festive atmosphere under the warm sun. Today we decided to go out with the tender to kite-surf and play water games in Pointe Milou, the perfect spot for water sports. No restaurant could ever compete with what the chef and crew prepared for us for our Christmas dinner onboard: along with the culinary delights, the crew

organized a beautifully themed party … A perfect home-away-from-home Christmas. The next morning, we move on to Anguilla, an island famous for its stunning beaches, including Shoal Bay – deservedly considered one of the Top Five beaches in the world. If you want to spend some time ashore, here you can find a golf club, beach restaurants, or totally free and wild areas. To the north of the island we discover Sandy Island. (I'd like to think we “discovered” it, but in all honesty I have to say that it was all arranged!) Sandy Island is small, so small there is only one restaurant – but what a restaurant! Freshly-caught prawns and lobsters, and utterly exclusive, since the only way to get to the island is with the tender. After two days spent playing on the beaches and diving and snorkeling in their waters, our vacation is coming to and end. We head back to St. Maarten, where there is a direct flight to Paris. On the plane, I lean back, close my eyes, and can feel a smile forming as I think back to the salt flavour and the heat of the Sun reaching into my bones. And I promise myself that, next year, I will come back, ready for a new experience. Next year … next year … Perhaps this time in a sailing boat, through the thousand bays and islands still unexplored. w w w.f l o a t i n g l i f e . c o m

Corsica

Bonifacio, Porto Vecchio e Ajaccio

Over the years, Corsica continues to be one of the most sailed cruising routes: delightful coasts, ancient villages boasting port towns, excellent weather, and some of the world’s finest beaches and spectacular mountain scenery. Guests could embark in the beautiful Bonifacio, the ideal port of call with an incredibly

picturesque setting.

Bonifacio is a lovely medieval town, the oldest in Corsica, located on the cliffs of a limestone peninsula above a natural harbour. Not to be missed is a walk on the narrow cobbled roads, absorbing the atmosphere offered by medieval buildings, squares, restaurants and cafés. From the yacht you will appreciate the dramatic coastal scenery of beaches separated by cliffs and caves, including the famous Sant’Amanza and Rondinara beaches. Only about 25 km from Bonifacio is Porto Vecchio, a delicious must. Within its two areas, the citadel – old town and the marina - you and your guests will enjoy discovering ancient buildings, bastions and ramparts, narrow streets, Place de la Republique. Cafés and nightlife offer a perfect summer evening. In the morning you could enjoy a refreshing bath in turquoise waters and relax on the sandy beaches of Palombaggia or Cala Rossa , located in the bays of the nearby coast. Floating Life, through its dedicated Concierge Service, will be happy to book a table for you in one of the gourmet restuarants in the Porto Vecchio area, such as Cala Rossa, Casa del Mar, or Le Belvedere. Sailing back towards Bonifacio and then heading north, Campomoro Beach will astonish you with its crystal waters and soft, yellow sand. We would also suggest a 30 minute walk to reach Corsica's greatest, perfectly maintained, Genoese tower, where you will be delighted by a breathtaking view. w w w.f l o a t i n g l i f e . c o m
