Our resident accountant and money guru, Derek was inspired to share his knowledge after chatting with a well-travelled friend, so has written a short blog on purchasing foreign currency and the different cards you can use to avoid the sting of bank charges when spending abroad.
With his advice in hand and the pound at its strongest in seven years it’s a great time to think about heading to Europe, Turkey and Croatia.

This year we have launched the new Tremiti Islands trip on the western side on the Adriatic. For a new twist why not combine one of our Croatian trips (Dalmatian CoastLong or Short Swims) on the Eastern side of the Adriatic with a week in the Tremiti Islands and explore both sides of the Adriatic in one trip.

Simon once said ‘’If you going to walk to the base camp of Everest, it's good to know your guide has been to the Summit’’ when he was giving a pre-season talk at SwimTrek HQ. This is certainly true of our guides, with most of them having completed significant swims around the world. SwimTrek Guide Bronwen Poleston-Jones has kindly given us an insight into one of her days off on our Croatian Dalmation Coast trip where she swam 9 Kilometres along the coastline of our home island of Prvić in search of her favourite lunch spot.
