One of the most useful items I had with me during my trip to Sicily was this colourful sarong from Craghoppers.
Firstly, I loved the colour. From my website’s colour palette to the clothes I’m wearing in my profile picture you can see I love turquoise.The sarong is a lovely vivid blue matching the colour of an aquamarine sea.
I also love the sarong’s versatility. It was comfy and cool worn as a dress first thing on a warm Sicilian morning and perfect for a trip to the beach. In the evenings I used it as a shawl to warn off those pesky little critters.
Lastly, while my friends both got bitten by mosquitoes I didn’t get a single bite. One of them was even wearing insect repellent spray and still got bitten. Not exactly scientific proof that it works but considering I normally get bitten more than anyone else, I was pretty impressed. And it is all thanks to Craghoppers’ NosiLife, an insect repellent which is permanently woven into the fabric of this sarong.
It’s available in two colours, lagoon, shown here and sunset, which happens to be very similar colour to the wall behind this bench in Sicily. I’m more than happy to recommend this sarong as a treat for yourself or a present. You can buy yours here at Craghoppers.com.
Update: Sadly the lagoon sarong is no longer available but yo can still buy the sunset sarong.
