Vis, Croatia

We arrived to our little fisherman/ touristy island yesterday after a hellish hot hangover day on the boat. so happy to be off the boat!
The little island is very quaint, we lucked out with a very cute little apartment (the lavendar apt - named for all the lavendar that surrounds the house) that has a big kitchen and three beds. I think I forgot to mention that we have adopted another traveller with us for the past week and a bit - Erin from Aus. So the three of us were so excited about having our own little apt. We went for an intense bike ride yesterday which was actually a bit scary. It was like mtn biking without the sick mtn bike. so skidding on rocks and being thoroughly trashed around was the standard experience for a majority of the trip - I now give extra props to all u mtn bikers out there. It was a perfect day for biking though the weather was a bit overcast and windy so we didnt die of heat exhaustion. We found a really cool little cave/pool of water that Christi and I jumped into which resulted in some funny footage to maybe post. good times.
afterwards we picked up some food, some wine and some cherry brandy at the supermarket and made a huge feast while it monsooned outside. being able to make our own dinner for $12 each including everything was really awesome. the cheerry brandy, however, was not an awesome idea. maybe one glass would,ve been... :)

today we go to this other little town on the other side of the island to go adventure to some blue caves. we also say goodbye to erin as she heads up to slovenia. tomorrow we go back to split to catch a ferry to either the party/beach island of Pag or to Rijeka a big port city where we might be able to find another connecting ferry.

P.S. Happy Fathers Day Dad!
