That and the YouTube videos we’d watched before we left, which promised saunas on remote islands and warned of navigation hazards and strange anchoring styles. We found all of that, along with the warmest of welcomes everywhere we went, stunning scenery, excellent food, sidesplitting laughter and lasting friendships.

Hypnotic tunes quickly drew everyone to the dance floor.
