croatia III: hvar

croatia III: hvar

For me, hands down the best part about Hvar: the gorgeous, gorgeous islands off the coast. The second-best part of Hvar: the insanely gorgeous church directly on the waterfront path past the main part of town. The third-best part of Hvar: the salt-water pool and tasty breakfast with a view...Read more
