I have to devote an entire blog to my favorite island: Vis! We pulled into Vis town on Tuesday morning. It was going to be a long, fun day. First we docked at a marina and went to shore and walked about a mile to find a place to rent scooters. We got four scooters for the eight of us, with the boys driving. I got to ride with Marko, who had just recently returned from a scooter trip that took him all the way to Spain. Aside from the Vespa in Tuscany, I had never been on a motorized bike thingy. I was a little nervous, but it was so much fun. I was glad I was riding with someone familiar with this as the hills were very windy and there were many cars. Vis ... read more

Someone grabs the lazy line ... read more

by anna (and david) June 14th-20th I don't think we've been back to many places. We like discovering new ones. However, such is our love for this Dalmatian island, this year was the third in a row we have been to Vis (and hopefully there'll be many more visits in the future). Day 1 we met David, Kristi and Finn in Split to get the ferry across to Vis. We were happy to survive the hair raising cab ride there. Seriously, I doubted we'd make it. I was too scared to be able to talk to ask the cabbie to slow down. There is little more to say. Vis for us is all about chilling. Chilling on the balcony. Chilling by the water (beach is a bit generous). Chilling in Vatricia, our favourite restaurant (I think ... read more
