Set sail alone or with friends anywhere in the world with the GetMyBoat app. The app connects sea and lake adventurers with luxury boat owners and a list of high-ranked captains to let those not looking to buy a yacht experience life on the water. Charters all over the world offer unique itineraries for travelers to sit back, relax and enjoy sun-drenched decks.
Similar to short-term home rental websites like Airbnb and VRBO, GetMyBoat relies on hosts to post their personal boats for people looking to have a private charter with friends and family. Customers send an inquiry to the boat owners on days they would like to book a trip and together they negotiate pricing. Each boat owner can choose their own pricing per hour, duration of trips and guidelines for guests to follow while aboard.
Aside from luxury yachts, GetMyBoat offers jet skis, sailing trips, paddleboards, fishing charters, diving lessons, private tours, cruises and even event spaces for large groups. These rentals and water activities are perfect for socially distant gatherings, away from large beach crowds. The app projects to send more than 1 million people on water adventures in 2021 after seeing a huge boom in reservations with one made every few minutes.
Prepare your taste buds for the trip of a lifetime in Greece. About 100 Greek products — from wines, cheese and fruits to honey and oils — earned a Protected Designation of Origin from the European Union, and the country’s most beloved dishes include Greek Choriatiki salad, tzatziki, souvlaki and moussaka, with its layers of eggplant, potato, minced meat and bechamel. And those are only a few of the many highlights.
I recently dined at Irwin’s in Philadelphia. The restaurant is located on the rooftop of the Bok Building, a former school turned collective of small businesses, non-profits, artist workshops, a bar and restaurant. I previously visited Bok for the bar and yoga classes, and I was excited to experience the restaurant.
With more than 6,000 islands total, with 227 inhabited, in Greece, the selection is overwhelming. Which one is perfect for your next vacation?
