... are just people. And that we have a knack of finding our way and that Croatians are supposed to be kind and lovely - just like that waitress...remember?
But I still worried - I mean, come on, they're Croatian!
Then I worried about the beauty of the place. Italy, Spain, Austria, France, Germany - they are all so picturesque. What if Croatia is ugly or war torn or just not charming?
Seriously, it could be... I mean, come on, it's Croatia!!!
... of Korčula at a small, steep area of vineyards perched above the Adriatic Sea. The just-picked grapes are brought by boat to the winery, just north of the historic walled city, Dubrovnik, in the southern Dalmatia wine region.
We cruised from there back to Dubrovnik, it was quite a way, we stopped for a swim stop in a magical bay, there was a huge jellyfish that scared some of the swimmers ...
... made a fishing net that did not work well. We had so much fun. After a long time we went back to the boat and got dry and ready for lunch. The two sailors both made some prawn risotto with a cucumber and tomato salad. I enjoyed the lunch a lot and had 2 serves of it. I then went to the front of the boat to look at the fishes swimming around. The water was very clear and you could see the bottom very easily. Then we got some bread and chucked it ...
... some accomodation (like the previous evening), well all that was left was quite second-rate, to stay polite.
In the end we found ourselves in a tiny dorm, dark and damp, in a strange hostel that made us want so little to stay there (the rain didn't help either) that we gave up our last night to be out of there sooner. But it wasn't that bad because we were on the move again, bag over the shoulder, heading for the islands! :)
... being on another beach though (we really don't realise how lucky we are in NZ with untouchpd places even in peak season!). It was crazy that beach just poking out there as it does with emerald waters encompassing either side, but the rain came and drenched us so I retreated to Bol town to explore and drink coffee... in the rain under a brolly it was quite relaxing actually. Croatia blows me away at every turn... I cannot wait to see more. Hasta Dubrovnik Todos ...
