Day 61 – Korcula (Croatia)

We left Hvar early in the morning, and let me tell you. It’s the best feeling ever not having to quickly pack your stuff and run for a bus in the morning. I woke up to the boat already sailing off to our next destination, Korčula. And I was on it!

Korčula is in the Dubrovnik-Neretva County of Croatia. The island has an area of 279 km2 and is 46.8 km long and on average 7.8 km wide.
It only has aroud 16,182 people and I can imagine in Summer it would just be full of tourists.
However, when we got there it was pretty much a ghost town.

I don’t think I even took that many pictures of Korčula because there just wasn’t anything to show. (I will however add some pictures off Google Images haha)

It had stopped raining when we arrived so we all headed off the boat to look around Old Town Korčula.
There were barely any people, most restaurants were closed, there was 2 Gelato stores with only half the cabinets filled with gelato and the odd souvenir store.
We ended up taking a stroll and then going to one of the restaurants that was open for some food.

We do get food on the boat (the chef makes us lunch) but to be honest, I’m such a fussy bitch and I was not a fan. I think that day it was some type of meat with some potato and knowing me if I didn’t eat it, some mushrooms or zucchini (not part of my food group)

Instead, when we sat down I had some fries (my go-to food when I don’t know what else to get)
And one of the girls got a pizza.
We basically sat there and used their free wi-fi while nibbling on our food and then headed back to the boat after a few hours.

I’m writing this blog a week later so I’m just trying to remember what I did now…
I probably had a nap on the boat or something haha.

When it got to around 7.30pm, our group went to a restaurant that Sail Croatia has a deal with. We basically get free welcome shots and 10% off our meals.
Being honest, the shots were probably Robitussin Cherry liquid forte because that’s what they tasted like.

When we got to ordering our food, we sat outside and I order a chicken burrito thing which I defiantly could have made better myself. I ended up feeding it to the cat that was sitting at my feet (Croatia has a thing for cats walking around everywhere)
I don’t think she liked it very much either.
*sigh*
The drinks were cheap though 🍻 By this stage, I’d out done myself on the Somersby Apple Ciders and my mouth just tasted like sugar from the night before. 😩

We all headed back to the boat to drink some more after dinner (and attempted to play beer pong but had not enough cups) then when it got to 1am we headed to a ‘street party’

Our tour leader said in the Summer it goes off and it’s so much fun.
However when we went, we were the only ones there. Haha! 😑 I ended up getting drunk though and calling my best-friend in the bathroom at some stage to tell her my mares.😁
Then kept hiding in the bushes when we walked back to the boat at 3am. Someone’s gotta have some fun!

I think everyone got bit drunk that night, even though it wasn’t a full-on night I think we all still had a good time.
