This morning we took a ferry from Hvar to Korcula, which took about one hour. Korcula is known as the "mini Dubrovnik" of Croatia. It is an ancient town (said to be founded around the 12th century BC) that is surrounded by walls with a fort in the center.
We were able to reserve a day trip to the Blue and Green Caves by shopping around the day before. Several companies offer various excursions from Hvar, it just depends on how much time you have and what you are interested in seeing. We left the port of Hvar around 9:30am with a return time of around 6pm.
We woke up early this morning to catch the ferry from Split to Hvar, which was about a two-hour trip. We chose to utilize the ferry for the majority of our adventure around Croatia, but many have also rented cars without any issues.
For our one-year anniversary, we decided to head back to Europe for another coastal adventure. This time, our destination was on the other side of the Adriatic Sea in the lesser-known country of Croatia. Why Croatia? You get all the perks of Italy (food, views, weather, etc) without the crowds or high costs. Besides, it's also where King's Landing is! Mind you, we didn't have high expectations (Italy and Greece were GORGEOUS, see blog posts from last year's Honeymoon). However, our initial assumptions were quickly blown away...

This is one of the things I've been working on lately. It's been a while since I've done video and I'm slowly getting back into it.
Have a look and let me know what you think!
