Hanging out in Hvar

Hvar is one of the top 10 most beautiful islands in the world, apparently, and I believe it. Our room has a balcony overlooking the city and the sea. The town is crowned by a huge fortress that I, Kristen, gladly (practically) scaled a mountain for (read: There were nearly as many stairs as in a two-storey house). There were small islands off the coast, popular with the nude bathers. As you can imagine, I could barely keep Jonathan away. Just joking.

We have made so many people in the last couple of days. On the ferry from Split to Hvar we met this cute newly-retired German couple who knew the history of everything. We chatted over expresso. Then we met some Vancouverites on the bus from the ferry to Hvar Town. And, then, a girl from Edmonton who was staying at the same guesthouse as us.

Now I am sitting on my wonderful balcony, eating Milka (delicious chocolate) and watching my underwear sway in the breeze on the clothesline (Jonathan did the laundry). Oh the life...

So glad to finally hear from you.
Sorry - it's my job to worry!
Now I'm just jealous of your "Island".
