Island Hop

Switzerland was all green and blue; Croatia is tan and deep turquoise. As the color palette changed, so did the food, weather, and people. We went from city Split to the island of Korcula, and finally the island of Hvar. It was torrential rains some days and nothing but sun other days. We swam in the clear waters, thick with salt, and lounged on the rocky shores very much enjoying our vacation. 

Town of Korcula

Korcula town was once completely surrounded by a sturdy rock wall to protect from outward attackers. The structures within this wall are laid out with a central spine with rows coming off of it. The rows are divided into 20' sections with 5' alleyways, to allow for sunlight yet protect from the harsh sea wind. It is very easy to navigate, and a visitor can easily understand the layout upon arrival.
