Make eyes at Mykonos 

The Ibiza of Greece. It’s giving boujee, main character, boho chic vibes.  

Whilst you’re not gonna have The Hangover vibes on your Topdeck trip (👀), this party island might be the place where they come close. Think: Negrita Bar, 180 Sunset Bar, Scarpa, and for extra freedom and REAL me vibes, Caprice Bar.  

Caprice Bar was created by dreamers Melpo and Nikos. Their no. 1 aim? To have a place where people could be their REAL selves. Yep, it’s alll about feeling free and safe to express exactly who you are. All wrapped up in a typical bohemian atmosphere.

Pt 3: Top things to do in Croatia, Kayaking around the ancient City Walls of Dubrovnik #topdeck #croatia #dubrovnik #dubrovnikcroatia #eurosummer #traveltok #traveltips #kayaking

This ancient city is overflowing with a laidback vibe (it’s called fjaka in Dalmatian). It’s got cheap pizza places for those midnight schnackks. It’s got bars dotted all over the city. D’vino Wine Bar, La Bodega and Buza Bar are the places you CANNOT miss.  

It’s also the place to go for beaut outdoors. Think: fresh air, greenery, getting those 10k steps in on a calf-burning hike. Just cos you’re on an awesome trip doesn’t mean you let go of all the daily habits.  

Get yourself to the Botanical Gardens for a wander among leafy greens, ancient statues and cobbled pathways.  

OR take the hiking trail to Park Orsula. The old amphitheatre that was built into a hillside. Your breath will be taken away. And not just from the mammoth climb. The views of Old Town are I-N-C-R-E-D-I-B-L-E. Especially when the sun’s going to sleep for another day. Just sayin’.
