Travel Blogs from Hvar
Since I typed yesterday's blog, I'm back where I should be. It must be the island life, as now I'm at Hvar Island. Or it could be the weather, which has improved from cloudy to sunny skies. Or it could be that I had my own bedroom and bathroom last night. Sometimes it's the little things in life... In the morning I took a wonder around the …
... activity of White Water Rafting.
Let's start with the attire needed to go Rafting in September: A wet suit. Being as that I'm not a size 2 twig but rather a woman with some curves, a wet suit was not my idea of a flattering addition to my wardrobe. However, I still managed to squeeze into it.
Rafting itself was a blast. It was serene and peaceful in parts and then adventurous and action packed in others. ...
- Very nicely laid out and well-groomed city - nice parks with flowers and fountains. Very pretty
- People dress very nicely
- Very friendly people talking to me on the tram, in the shops etc in Croatian and continuing to talk in a friendly way (in Croatian) even when I said I don't speak it
- But also some unfriendly people and strange people including a 10yo boy walking around barking ??
- Nice, clean, new hostel in the ...
Rob and I woke up very tired. The bed was squeaky, so every time someone moved in the bed, you were awoken by an annoying noise. It was so hot we slept with the air con on, as there was no fan in our room, but the air con. even though set at 24 degrees, it was like Antarctica in our room and we only had a sheet on our bed. We were obviously too tired to get up and grab a blanket from the cupboard, but both of us woke up early in the morning, freezing.
... a quick beer and bike snack. Lada and Milan always have a selection of fresh fruit, cookies, pretzels, peanuts, almonds, raisins and dried cherries for us at designated rest stops. Then they loaded the bikes on the trailer and us on the van for the ride back to Hvar town. Even though we were stiff and sore after the ride back, we hurriedly got ready for dinner. We were on own for dinner tonight. Terry had made a reservation for 7 o'clock at ...

TravelPod Member ReviewsLuka's Lodge Hvar
I really enjoyed staying here but I wouldn't recommend it if you like more than basic facilities.
If you're happy for basic but clean facilities then I wouldn't stay anywhere else on Hvar. The owner Luka is what really makes this place special. He can't do enough to make sure that your stay on Hvar is enjoyable as possible. One of the nights he stayed he organised a BBQ of locally caught fresh fish and it tasted fantastic. He collected us from the ferry port and took us back when we were leaving. His recommendations of what to do and where to eat were great.
The room we have was shared between 4 of us - we were travelling together. There were 4 single beds in the room which meant there was little room for anything else but it was all we needed. The bathroom was right next to our room so no problem there either. The kitchen facilities were outside which was fine as it was good weather when we were there but would't have been that enjoyable if we had had bad weather.
I would definately go back.
