Croatia || Cruising around Korcula

After what seemed like a picture perfect 36 hours in Hvar we boarded the 2 hour ferry bound for Korcula, the next stop on our Croatian island-hopping adventure. Arriving just in time for sunset, it was only a short stroll to our apartment--and we were in for a treat, our place overlooked the waterfront so for dinner we grabbed dinner at a pizzeria downstairs right next to the water. And ofcourse our small travel posse is never opposed to a cocktail nightcap underneath a full moon. :)

Korcula was a bit quieter, a bit smaller and a bit less touristy. But just as beautiful. We loved renting a boat in Hvar so much that we did the same in Korcula. Once again packing our little boat with beer and goodies from the local market, we went on a mission to find the best swimming spot around the island. We must have stopped in 10 different places! The warm and crystal blue water felt like heaven on our skin. As if that wasn't enough, the tiny islands and old stone houses right on secluded beaches were a real treat for the eyes.

It should be illegal how many times I floated in the water and thought to myself "this is the liiiiiife".
