A Little Bit of MisChief, by Christina Gillgren

A light hearted, whimsical account of seven years spent living on a boat and sailing from Australia to the Mediterranean and beyond: a journey sprinkled with exhilarating experiences that include sandstorms at sea and tropical water spouts, heart pounding moments with pirates, swimming with whale sharks and dolphins in some of the most exotic waters, amazingly generous characters and of course lasting friendships and laughter along the way.

"The author's adventures are told so vividly, making it so blissfully and effortlessly easy to picture being there, or just following her paths to perhaps make up your very own 'bucket-list' of the must-see, sublime spots mentioned in her book.

Of course, this is a particular sailor's journal entwined with a good dose of humour, equally peppered with sweetness, and bold, clever risks well as a little bit of mischief. Exhilarating simplicity, with an alluring dash of coy, so refreshingly told, like having an exciting catch up with a really good friend. Just makes you want to reach out for your favourite Chardonnay, and smile. And dream away."
