Croatia Day 9: Vis a Vis 

We set sail from Stari Grad on Hvar and made a 3 hour trip to Vis this morning. The sea was rolling, and unfortunately, Finn got seasick. At least he made it to the back of the boat…

I’d been told Vis was beautiful, having been cut off from tourism for 50 years due to it being a military island. I had no idea. 

Pulling into port, we were greeted with this:

After docking, Ben killed us with another delicious lunch. Seriously, this guy has mastered making meals in a limited space. I want to bring him home😂

He also hooked us up with Marco, of No Bullshit tours. Guys, seriously, if you come to Vis, you must take his tour. Hidden submarine ports, abandoned bunkers, snacks and wine, scarily crazy drives praying for you life, and best of all, a lover of history whose passion shows. Marco kept all three boys engaged, and Keegan especially was enthralled. 

Because it was clear today, Marco took us to the highest point on Vis where there’s a small chapel and 360-degree views of the islands and Italy. 

After touring, Marco brought us to Roki’s for snacks and wine. Of course, we walked away with more wine – a white and a red. Croatian wines continue to surprise me in a great way. 

Now we’re off to explore the old town and find dinner.
