Totally loved the first Drift evening. Rebecca, you did such lovely attention to detail and Natalie's yoga in a warm and cozy room was gorgeous. Gemma's cooking was absolutely delicious, I felt amazing when I woke up this morning! And I totally loved the mass sunset swim in the sea, can't wait to show you the pictures!
