Vis to Hvar

Hvar, Croatia

This morning, we woke up to discover the storm we saw on the first night had caught up with us. We were disappointed to hear that our trip to the Blue Caves in Vis had been cancelled due to the weather. Instead, we set sail early for Hvar, the captain confident that the weather was going to improve - he claims he can feel the weather changing in his bones. In this case, his knee was telling him the wind was changing!

We hoped our captain was right as we sat aboard the rocking boat, playing endless card games to distract ourselves from the seasickness taking hold. Eventually, I succumbed and had to go and lie down.

We arrived in Hvar to calmer waters and sunnier skies, and set out to visit yet another fortress. This one, at least, was an official historical site. Once again, there were some stunning views of Croatia's trademark red roofs from the battlements. Afterwards, to recover from our trek, we sat down but were soon interrupted by a pack of probably stray puppies. We escaped back to the boat.

The evening was one of the most fun, with a seafood dinner followed by a night at Kiva Bar. I wasn't too optimistic about the tiny, normal-looking bar, but the atmosphere and the music was great. We spent the night jumping up and down to some decent music and burning off the ice-cream calories of the past few days.
