Korčula, as viewed from our swimming spot
This was a great stop on my tour of Croatia. I came over on the 31st with my Swiss friends, planning only to stay one night. We swam in the ocean, ate some great seafood, and had a few drinks. They headed back to Dubrovnik
in the evening, and I checked into the first hostel I saw, the Korčula Backpackers Hostel--that's where things picked up a notch.
This place was one of the more social hostels that I've stayed at. There were people lounging around watching "Team America", and at 11 PM the bar in the hostel became a full on party/pick-up scene. With Vietnamese lamps casting a nice glow on everything, there were drinking games in the corner, couples making out, and the usual "where have you been, where are you going" conversations that happen in every hostel.

I met some really nice people, including two Parisienne girls who laughed a lot, and made me want to move to their country. After having drinks at the hostel, we moved on to a foam party at the only disco club open at 3 AM, Gaudi. It was my first time going to a foam party, and it was wet, slippery, and a lot of fun. We danced to the cheesy music that seems to be a requisite at all Central/Eastern European dance clubs (I think they might all share a soundtrack), and got soaked by all the foam. Later in the night (or early morning), we went for a swim, which would have been great except that I stepped on a sea urchin, and got spines stuck in my feet. Limping back to the hostel, I decided that this was too fun to leave on the catamaran that was leaving two hours later, so I decided to stay another night.
