sunny 26 °C

I couldn't possibly go to Croatia without visiting an island, and the most famous of all is of course Hvar Island. So bus bus ferry rides later and I found myself enjoying European seaside bars, restaurants, night clubs and a yuppie yachtie's haven.

For not the first time in my life I felt incredibly pale compared to the beautiful tanned people that seemed to frequent the island. They had clearly spent more time in the sun that myself. But despite feeling white, it didn't stop me dressing up for a beachside dinner, drinks and later on a visit to 'Carpe Diem', a night club even I had heard about on Hvar. So with a few people I'd met at the hotel and a few drinks (though the bar was crowded enough that you tended to sober up between drinks anyway), ended up sitting in a separate bar further up the path. Beautiful sunset over the bay and boats.


The next morning consisted of sleeping in, finding food and generally recovering from the night before. Also had a good opportunity to take some photos. Then a late afternoon ferry back to the mainland and a late night train to Zagreb.

Some beautiful photos! Definitely helping cement my decision to visit Croatia in June. It looks quite quiet - did you do a lot of early mornings to get these photos? Only worry about going in June is the crowds!

Thanks for your comments. Croatia was beautiful! Definitely worth visiting. I was there in early July and didn't find it too crowded so sure June should be ok. These were mostly day photos, early evening and sunset so no - didn't do early mornings, particularly on Hvar. Enjoy your trip!
