Last month the sailor and I headed over to Croatia to sail the Dalmation Coast with four adventurous friends, having sailed a lot of waters around the globe in my time I would have to admit that this was one of my favourite sailing destinations in the world. The Adriatic Sea is a blue and crystal clear like I have never seen before. The historic towns, and the beautiful, generous friendly people make this a wonderful holiday destination.
So here we are in Korcula, like a mini Dubrovnik, a walled town on the Korcula Island, surrounded by the most beautiful beaches of the Dalmatian coast. Steeped in history, the city is a snakes and ladders of marble lane ways, housing, quaint homes, churches, unique little tourist shops and restaurants.
Just stepped off the boat and having a sit with my mate Pete. Wallet in hand ready to explore.
Every town in Croatia along the Coast and inland has a fresh food market open daily. Expect to find plump red tomatoes, lettuce, cucumbers, aubergines, herbs, fresh made cheeses eggs and lots lots more.
Found a restaurant...and wine, always wine in Croatia
This had to be a sign. Keep this in mind for merchandising inspiration.
When in Croatia, this wine is very delicious, close to a savignon blanc.
And then after a wonderful lunch of mussels, sword fish and a little too much of this, we dreamed of buying this renovaters delight, around 800,000 AUD.
Dream on... back to the boat!
