Where I stayed
On the boat :)

A bit of trouble getting up this morning, but made it down to breaky by about half 8. After my belly was full, I headed out to check out a bit more of the old town in the sun. A couple hours looking around and then it was back to the hostel to meet the others that were coming on the boat and pick up my bag.
Once everyone had got onto the boat, it ended up being the guy who was our guide, 3 crew guys, a couple that had been with me for the past 2 days, and 20 girls. This could be interesting! I'm just hoping all the girls get on well and we don't drive the guys overboard. We all found our cabins (a bunk and enough room for 2 backpacks, changing would need to be done in the hall!) and set off for Milna on the island of Brac.
After a bit of a storm and some rough waters, we arrived into the marina. Luckily the sun was back out! A quick lunch on the boat of some yummy seafood spaghetti and then I joined 4 others who were off to find a coffee before I headed to a swim spot. Had a little dip, but the sun had gone into hiding so a bit cold for a proper swim. Walked back to the boat to change and then set out to get lost in the winding streets of the town. There were tons of small stone buildings with vines crawling up the side. Wandered about for an hour of two before heading back to the boat for dinner.
Had the first disappointing meal, a mixed plate of tough bbq`d meats, in a long time. After dinner we all went up to the deck for a few drinks and to do the getting to know each other thing. After a couple, we decided to go check out some of the other boats to see if there was any action. Went two boats down and just climbed down onto a boat that had some music playing. They didn't seem too upset about 20 random girls getting on, as they responded to us showing up by cranking up the tunes and passing around some drinks. We had a bit of a dance and then headed back to our boat to get some sleep. First day on the boat was ace, hopefully the whole week sailing through the lovely islands of Croatia will be just as good.
