So its been 3 weeks since I got back from this holiday, and I am still reeling about it, it was honestly genuinely one of the best holidays I have been on. Not necessarily because of the location, but as soppy as this sounds, I went away with my best friends who I’ve known for 10 years or so, and we laughed constantly, acted like weirdos most of the time, danced all night and there were no hiccups along the way really at all! Even writing this right now, i miss them soooo much!!
So anyways we flew to Split first on the coast in southern Croatia, from there we headed straight for the Island of Hvar where we stayed for the first couple of nights. The island was like something from a postcard, it was so beautiful!
Of course pretty predictably we headed straight to the beach! How could we resist to be honest?
The days followed as much of the same, until the weather took a turn for the worse. Despite the torrential rain, we maintained high spirits in our hostel room, we sat on our bunks weathering out the storm with cards, doing each other’s make up and straightening one anothers hair haha, in true girly style! But in the evenings the rain disappeared and we headed out, the bars were actually surprisingly good and very very busy! Hvar was clearly on everybody’s inter-railing checklist of places to visit.
There is one club worth mentioning though, if you get a chance to go to Hvar this place is a must! Its called Carpe Diem…how to get there??…a small boat leaves from the port every half an hour or so and transports you 10/15 minute boat ride away to another small island. This island is pretty much the club. The dance floor is in the middle of the forest and cool lights illuminate the trees. This description will not do the place justice, it is just such a surreal experience, in the middle of nowhere, but the vibes are great and the music is good. I took some pictures but towards the end of the night they tended to get a bit blurry…
After Hvar we headed to another island called Bol for a couple of chilled nights, but I have to be honest the weather was shit, and I barely felt the need to get out my cameras, except to take pictures of the girls! Next post though I will tell you all about what we got up to at Unknown festival the following week! Hopefully I can upload some of my videos too!!
