Here we are, stuck in what seems to be the opposite of a winter wonderland; torrential rain, hail, temperatures below 10 degrees, snow seems like the next plausible thing. However, for those babes who are lucky enough to made it out of these miserable conditions and are galavanting across Europe for the summer (major envy), we have some hot news for you and it's called; Obonjan Island Festival.
Islands and festivals, they go together better than wine and cheese. Not only will you get a killer tan in the European sun while we all fade to pale, but there is almost nothing this heavenly Croatian festival is missing.
Obonjan Island, located along the Croatian Coast, and well on its way to becoming Europe’s first island dedicated to arts and wellbeing. Opening this summer, Obonjan has everything from music to food to wellbeing activities, all the while shacking up in fancy tents with a beachfront view that will leave anyone speechless.
