Where I stayed
Local woman's apartmani

Flag of Croatia  , Hvar Island,
Thursday, December 27, 2012

Hvaaaaarrrrrr!  (H-wharrrrrr!)  It was a tune we sang as an inside joke by the time we completed our stay on the beautiful island.

We stayed at a sweet old lady's "apartmani" (apartment) for a ridiculously low rate.  This apartment was a one bedroom, full bathroom unit with a fully equipped kitchen and tv.  And we loved it there.  She even left a small plate of homebaked goodies for us as a welcome on the table.  And the sweet old lady barely spoke English.  It was so Croatian.

When we arrived at Hvar Town, we were struck by the beauty of the island and the sea.  As we gazed upon the picturesque view around us, we knew immediately that we would love it there.  And we did.

Forget that there were only 2 restaurants open the entire time we were there (and both served almost the exact same dishes), and that 99% of the shops were closed too.  

It was the place where I had some of the best hot chocolate, "Topla cokolada" I had ever had.  It was like pure melted chocolate mixed in with a bit of milk.  I "drank" it with a spoon.

By the time we left, we wished we had stayed at least a day longer.
