Visiting an Island Town [New Series Introduction]

I hope that summer is off to a good start in your corners of the world (at least in the northern hemisphere). Recently I showed you the beaches and shores of the island Hvar in Croatia, and I wanted to stay a little bit longer on the Adriatic sea. In this new series, that is starting on Monday, I will be showing you the small town of Korcula, that is located on the same named island, a couple of miles southeast from Hvar.

You can see Korcula on this map (as well as the island Hvar above it). In the right upper corner, you will spot Mostar, the city where I live.


With Korcula being located on an island, the main form of transportation is by ferry boats, which I love.



See you tomorrow for the first part. I'll go back to finishing up with the editing! Have a great Sunday.
