Our journey to Croatia was the very first worldwide journey we’d taken in months (for apparent causes) and it did really feel a bit surreal to lastly be travelling internationally once more.
The airport was fairly quiet, the lounge the identical however someway our flight was fairly full.
Anyway, a number of hours after, we landed in sunny Cut up.
The plan was to discover Cut up however we determined to depart that until the final and head over to the islands close by as a substitute. (Made extra sense than making an attempt to catch a ship from the islands on the day you have to catch your flight).
Brac was our chosen island and we simply left the airport and headed straight to the ferry terminal the place we picked up our pre-booked tickets and made our approach over to Brac.
Now we might have pushed however seeing as everybody wished to have the ability to freely bask in a tipple (and we had no actual plans on straying too far on Brac), we determined to get a taxi to take us to Bol on Brac island.
However yeah, sufficient about logistics, all in all, we arrived in Bol someday within the early night and we arrived ravenous. We rapidly checked in to the Hotel Vitar (we picked this one nearly solely for the rooftop pool 😄😆 ) and headed straight out to Ranc Restaurant in Bol (based mostly on an area advice) for dinner.
Many-a-pasta, calamari, wine and grappa later, we piled into mattress, completely exhausted however excitedly trying ahead to exploring Brac island.
The subsequent morning began with a lazy breakfast on the resort earlier than dousing ourselves in sunscreen and heading right down to the well-known Zlatni Rat seaside.
I need to inform you we received as much as some superb journey or did one thing ridiculously thrilling however we simply spend the subsequent couple of hours simply splashing round within the refreshing blue waters of Zlatni Rat and absorbing all of that Croatian sunshine.
We didn’t even transfer to get a drink! 😆😆😆
I’m not one to solar bathe (I get bored actually rapidly with it) however there was simply one thing so beautiful about being by the seaside and really having the ability to take pleasure in it correctly after being cooped at dwelling in London.
Finally although, our tummies made it very clear that they weren’t on board with our plans of simply absorbing the sunshine and cooling off within the sea and so off we went to seek out lunch and cocktails.
Usually, we might make an effort to discover a place that we actually preferred for meals however with this, we simply determined to wing it and see what got here up. (We did depart Zlatni Rat for this although – we had been feeling lazy however we positively knew higher than to attempt to get meals at a well-liked vacationer hotspot).
We made our method to a quieter restaurant by the seaside and ordered up a number of dishes of contemporary salads, seafood and cocktails.
Once more, such a easy second nevertheless it felt so surreal to be consuming out once more and by the seaside no much less.
Performed with lunch, we made our approach over to a different bar by the seaside the place we proceed to order in bottles of bubbly and lap up some extra sunshine and seaside time.
It’s maybe one of many laziest days on holidays we’ve had in an extended whereas and it was simply excellent!
We did resolve that day although that maybe we should always do some island hopping and with that, we locked in a ship to take us across the islands for the next day earlier than heading again to our resort to observe the sundown from our rooftop pool aperol spritz-in-hand.
For dinner, we went with one other native advice, a restaurant additional away from the busy centre of Bol however completely value it.
It’s referred to as Restoran Ribarska Kućica Bol and apparently serves up native Croatian meals, which we determined to dive proper into (of specific observe is the Dalmatinska Pašticada which is form of like a stewed beef dish with pasta).
With that, we determined to skip getting drinks on the town and swap the rooftop pool for the rooftop hot-tub. It was the proper method to end off a lazy, indulgent day!
