A big mix of posts from different locations have lately filled the blog and I hope it will make it even more interesting rather than confusing. And today is yet another place – right now I’m on Vis island in Croatia. Vis is almost like my second (or third) home and is, as well as Greece, a place I’m returning to for the fifth year in a row.

Vis has history of belonging to many different countries, including Italy, Austria and United Kingdom and was also a hideout of Tito, the leader of the Yugoslav resistance movement. The island didn’t open for tourism until the 90’s why there are yet no big hotels  nor charter trips here. The only ways you get to Vis are by sailing or by regular ferry from the mainland – Split.

Today I’ve been watching the restoration of Fort George, which is soon to be open and will act host for art, music and culinary experiences, and soon I will go down to my favourite restaurant here – Lola. The place opened last year and was warmly welcomed as an option to the plain grilled fish and boiled potatoes. Let’s see if they kept the high standard!
