How to get to Tete de Chien

How to get to Tete de Chien

Right Folks,

This is a travel post about Tête de Chien, a rocky formation overlooking Monaco, Cap d’Ail and Beausoleil. It is, in my opinion, the best spot from which to view all of Monaco. I am pretty sure you can also see Italy in the distance and the view of the sea from the Tête is bloody spectacular. I imagine many of you have a place like this wherever it is that you live, a place that you want to visit but for whatever reason you just never get around to it. Until last year, this has been Tête de Chien for me.

This is Positano. It’s such a lovely place. Especially from the sea. In fact better from the sea. I have traversed the single lane roads hugging all of the Amalfi coast and it is a stressful, daunting experience.

7 Things I Like About Naples

7 Things I Like About Naples

I have been coming to Naples for 12 years now. I love the place, feels lawless, completely different from the rest of Western Europe. Completely different from Northern Europe to be frank. And, oh man, is it different from North America.

Provisioning in Capri: Best food shops for superyacht chefs (and anyone else)

Provisioning in Capri: Best food shops for superyacht chefs (and anyone else)

There is no rule book to being a chef on a yacht, at least there isn't one that works in every situation because, obviously, on each yacht you are working with different captains and different owners. If I am to offer any advice it would be to try and start with common sense and be prepared to learn as you go. Since I firmly believe in sourcing local produce whenever possible, when on Capri I use the fish, fruit and vegetables that are from the island and the surrounding sea.

Drone Shoot No.2 - SARDINIA

Right folks.

Here is the last part of this mini series. I think this one is more cinematic. The wife told me to put music over it with no singing. I listened.

This is a spectacular part of the world. I only discovered it through working on board super yachts, which makes me grateful for this job I do. Definitely going to come back with the family next year. The beaches are excellent, food good and cheap, very laid back lifestyle.

Hope you like it.

Right folks,

The yacht is in Olbia awaiting the boss. He is flying from the States and joining us here. The airport is extremely close and very convenient for the wealthy, apparently; separate lines, queues, etc. They don't have to mix with the great unwashed! Let us not kid ourselves, that would be lovely. Took me 3 hours to get through security in Marrakech in April.

Anyway.

This is my first attempt at the north of Sardinia. This is a lovely island, with great food and even greater people. The beaches are fantastic, crystal clear, water's warm in July - perfect. I have another video with some more footage that I suspect will be better than this one. Kept it at 2 minutes here, for your viewing pleasure.

Enjoy,

Michael
