A vacation within a vacation is how Ashley described our 5 night stay in Hvar, a picturesque holiday town among Croatia’s Mediterranean islands.

Hvar is a holiday hotspot for both young and old, as well as those on a budget or those looking for something extravagant (I swear there’s constant competition between the arriving yacht owners). We all said its one of few places you vacation to that you know you’d like to return to again in the future. It combines the pretty old town architecture and cobblestone streets of most of Europe with a coast prettier and cleaner than most I’ve seen.

The weather has been wonderful. I think I’ve forgotten what clouds look like…

PS. I hadn’t yet travelled since iPads became popular… It actually is quite amusing to watch people take photos and videos with these massive screens, and it seems to be becoming more commonplace…
