Paklinski Otoci | Beaches, Hiking, and Yachting

Just off shore from Split, Paklinski Otoci is part of a chain of islands that is popular with the boating community. With only a small market and a handful of high end restaurants, it’s an ideal stop for sea farers looking for a quiet place to moor, or spend an afternoon getting drinks on the beach. Once our sailboat was docked, we set off on foot to find a private cove to ourselves to enjoy the golden hour.

When our friends Timon and Yana quit their jobs to start traveling the world three years ago, we had no idea how long their travels would last, or where their adventures would take them. They’ve always been avid hikers, planning ambitious 30 or 40 mile backpacking trips seemingly every weekend. Boldness and sheer determination are two of the characteristics that come to mine when thinking about what traits define them as individuals, and a couple. They’re love of the wilderness continues into their travels today, where they visit some of the most remote destinations in the world, trekking to capture breathtaking vistas, surrounded by nothing but Mother Earth. One of those destinations was Tasmania, and the images they captured are stunning.

Vancouver Island's West Coast | A Photo Journal

I will start by saying that Vancouver Island is truly worth your money + efforts.  You'll find free spirited hippies throughout, ready to send you love + happiness; endless coffee shops full of entrepreneurs planning their next big gig; countless beaches dotted with sun lovers; and an abundant amount of surfers restlessly fighting to catch the perfect wave. The Island is a place to completely lose yourself in the natural state of wonder, constantly being in awe of what surrounds you. I've spent most days outside exploring my surroundings, trying to capture the beauty of it all and the Island has taught me to appreciate where I am, to take one day at a time, and to enjoy the simple things.  Growing up here was truly a privilege.
