Hvar has a very special place in my heart for a few reasons. Croatia had been on the top of my bucket lists for a while. I had finally planned the trip of my dreams including London-Copenhagen-Mykonos-Hvar and Split the summer I graduated from college in 2016. However, life happened and I got a job the week I landed in London and I couldn’t make it to Croatia with all of my friends. Needles to say I was devastated all 5 of my friends were in Hvar, Croatia while I was working in London. I heard nothing but amazing things from my friends saying it was one of their favorite places in the world, naturally the fomo was killing me so fast forward a year and I find myself there. Croatia did not disappoint. I got an airbnb for one night in Split and then took the ferry the next day to Hvar.
Hvar is one of the most amazing places I have ever been. We stayed at Hotel Podstine which was beyond perfect for us. It was a little bit out of the city center, about a 20 minute walk along the water which is gorgeous. The water is crystal clear and everyone is so nice there. The food was so great we ate at all of the top restaurants our friends suggested. We rented four wheelers and drove around the island going on a wine tour which is a must. Also highly suggest getting a boat for the day to go around the islands- this had to be one of the best days we had there.
