Korcula to Vis

Vis, Croatia

We arrived in Vis in the afternoon after a lazy morning and another tasty ship's lunch. While most people, a bit worse for wear after last night, relaxed on the boat for the rest of the day, Charlie, Jess, Beth and I joined forces with the Canadians Kira, Rylan and Katie to hunt down an old British fortress we'd been told about. We bought some food from a supermarket so that we could have a picnic when we got there, and set out. The problem was, we had absolutely no idea where we were going. Eventually, we found ourselves at an old, abandoned building with a British flag carved into the wall. This must be it, we thought. We soon discovered the place was completely derelict - clearly not a tourist attraction! Still, we settled down in what looked like the remains of an ancient outdoor washroom and had our picnic. Afterwards, we discovered a way onto the roof of the spookily empty fort and got some stunning views of the sea as we watched the sun set.

We spent the night on the boat, 'bonding' with the group over Ring of Fire and various other bizarre drinking games ("I'm a viking, I'm a viking, I'm a viking!"). At about midnight, a group of us started to get hungry, so we wandered back onland for ice-cream, calzoni and impromptu Beatles impressions, while dodging stones thrown at us by a couple of locals lurking on a rooftop.
