What I did
Hung out with some awesome people!
Score for the last evening: A Twix ice cream. Yep, it's pretty much as you imagine. I saw one in a service station just out of Zagreb, but as I had just started driving on the right (wrong) hand side of the road, it wasn't all that warm and I figured that if I saw one I would see more, I didn't buy it. Big mistake. I drove Tom and mum quite mad searching high and low for the next few days looking for the ever elusive Twix ice cream. I spent almost half an hour in the pouring rain looking for said ice cream in Sarajevo, but to not avail (I did however come across (and buy in desperation) a poor magnum substitute, Tom had to eat the other half). You can then imagine my excitement when I came across this wondrous after dinner treat while in Hvar. For those who may be wondering, it was just as good as I thought it was going to be. Only problem is, is that now I'm hooked and am yet to come across another one :(
Poem for the day: Poem about Hvar on Hvar's tourist brochure. I have transcribed it exactly as it is written on the brochure. I do have to agree, Hvar is really special!
HVAR IS SOMETHING REALLY SPECIAL
Hvar is wonderful and remarkable in everything
It boasts one of the most beautiful Mediterranean landscapes Nature have ever
an agreeable and healthy climate,
a clean, unpolluted environment,
the strong and intoxicating fragrance of lavender, rosemary and heather,
cheerful and brisk everyday life,
age-old and glorious history,
illustrious Renaissance poets, the first public theater in Europe,
an attractive urban visage (some have likened it to a woman’s face),
a rich variety of cultural and historic monuments,
the longest tradition of organized tourism in Croatia,
witty and charming hosts and their immeasurable love for their town, and a
magical power to charm and
enslave anyone who ever steps on its soil.
How can it be explained?
Hvar is something really special, an experience you mustn’t miss!
