If youre desperate for some summer sunshine, these pictures from Croatia probably arent going to help you feel any better.
But the good news is that next summer, you could spend four weeks travelling the country – as well as helping to save marine wildlife.
Cruise company Unforgettable Croatia is offering a scholarship for someone to travel the country next July or August, assisting with marine research.
The trip will include a two-week volunteering programme and then a week-long land tour from Losinj to Spilt with four star accommodation.
From there, you will start a seven-night island hopping cruise ending in Dubrovnik.
The winning applicant will volunteer at the Blue World Institute in Losinj – working on scientific research and investigation of the marine environment.
The scholar will help to monitor the populations and behaviours of the marine life in the area.
Theres also lectures to help you learn more about the animals that live in the area and in your spare time, you can enjoy outdoor sports, snorkeling, swimming or just chilling on the beach.
Some meals, all accommodation and private transfers are included so you just need to pay for flights and some spending money.
You can apply online or nominate someone else to take part in the trip.
The applications are open now and close at midnight on 9 July.
You must be available to take up the scholarship between July and August next summer and all applicants must be over 18.
