After a few busy crafting days, today, you will have a free day to yourself. You may have the chance to explore what the island has to offer, whether trying one of the local restaurants or one of the many excursions the island has to offer.

Today we will welcome Gabi. She will introduce you to the world of Mandala Art. Mandala is the purpose of expression, including explosions of colour, thus bringing out the creative inner you!
