Here comes Croatia ‘again’! Its a blessing to have a friend that happens to be the most efficient planner in the world of traveling – My dear friend Kelly had it all covered once again; from the 12th century St. Benedict Monastery in Mjet to Korcula where Marco Polo apparently lived and of course, the party place – the Ibiza of Croatia… Hvar!!!
I had the pleasure of having a private tour of Tomic winery and meeting Mr. Tomic himself! Franco Milos winery & Dingac were also on the list. We were taken by a very ‘driven’ & patriotic driver who knew every bit of the history of Hvar and was so proud of it, leading us to a remote, rocky road on the top of a mountain and ending up in an isolate village where suddenly from nowhere appeared a house that converted to a 6 seat restaurant on the very top of a mountain called Stori Komin… A wonderful, authentic Croatian meal had been prepared ahead of time and I had the opportunity to taste fresh capers, olive oil, vinegar, bread and wine – all home made or from his garden. An absolutely monumental & unforgettable gastronomic experience.
As much as I want Croatia to be a sacred and secret place, I feel compelled to share this great ‘find’ with fans of my blog!
