People we met here:
Today was one of the worst days of my life,the croatian wine i had the night before wasnt agreeing with me at all.I was having one of the most violent hangovers in my life.Damn you Croatian wine!I was dragged around by Stacey and Alison in the morning whilst we tried to organise ferry tickets to Hvar.All the time i struggled to put together a sentence in my own language let alone try and speak croatian.
After getting our ferry tickets we got our stuff together and left Alison with our emails so that we could meet her in Dubrovnik later that week.
The next day were awoken by the sounds of swallows singing on our balcony and the bells of the local monastery,which was much nicer than being woken up by gobby synchronised swimming teams.We headed into town to stroll around the main square and along the promenades either side of the harbour and found a few beaches.
Before heading to the beach we went to the internet cafe where there was the most ignorant english bloke ive ever met,watching him basically shout at people,needless to say he was sailing yahcts and most English people ive met who sail tend to be very sheltered from the world around them much like he was.
Then that evening we went to a cafe again where a little local girl kept giving us sweets which was very nice.And on the way home there was a group of men gathering together which i thought were going to be a bit of trouble, but they turned out to be a choir and they just stood around with cans of lager in there hands singing together.Brilliant.
On our last day it was quite a lazy day,we didnt get up until around 10am,and when you compare that to the rest of our trip that is extremely late,but Hvar was meant to be a chill out place and our accomodation was amazing so we didnt care.
The only problem with our last day was the hundreds and hundreds of tourists from the american cruise liner.The place was absolute chaos,a far cry from the previous 2 days.You could hardly move for them,it certainly took away alot of the charachter of Hvar.That afternoon we went for another long walk along the coast and came to a little secluded cove that you could only get to by swimming which was beautiful.Then as we headed back to town we heard a big commotion,and as we got back to the harbour we found loads of teenagers throwing themselves in the harbour.When we asked what the were doing it for someone said they had just finished their exams.Very amusing!
