    Agave

    Agave Overlooking Zavala

    Favorite thing: Agave plants are growing everywhere. After about one hundred years of growth, the plant produces a flower which looks like a tree (see the picture) - it dies. But there are many small agave plants around the old one ready to grow and bloom.

    My friend Sinisa went back to Hvar just to collect one agave flower-tree that had finished blooming and was about to fall down. He managed to transport it in such odd way I won't even describe, you can't do that, you are not silly enough.
    But now he has this magnificent flower dry and lacquered in his living room.
    I'm contemplating ... thinking and planing ...

    Beach in Zavala

    Favorite thing: Round pebbles, crystal clear water.
    Maestral wind starts blowing in the early afternoon like a perfect air-conditioner.
    Of course these beaches get crowded from mid July until end of August.
    Best time to visit Hvar is September. Then you can eat fresh grapes, pick figs from the trees, munch carobs and spit seeds into the sea.

    Croatian Coastline

    Favorite thing: This picture was taken when we were on the Drvenik-Sucuraj ferry on the way to the island of Hvar. It doesn't get any more beautiful than this!
