JOANNA HOGARTH, Great Britain

One of my fears about this trip was that in being taken and shown wonderful things we could miss out on the other aspect of travel - the meeting people.

Today we visited the islands of Kornati assembling first at the harbour in Murter. Waiting was beside a fleet of operational fishing boats, always a good sign if you have the chance ot eat fish later.

To find this haven in the centre of Sibenik made me feel like goldilocks finding the three bears house. I was met by the patient Maria-who had waited rather longer than expected- at the foot of the stairs by the cathedral, no taxi can reach Johnny's.

You could draw a flow chart for this trip. This was a time to make choices. To walk or not, to traverse the valley or not, to ascend by the path, or the track….Each time one option was known and visible, the other was into the unknown.

I hadn’t done any research on this island so was keen to learn more on the journey out, an hours boat ride from Sibenik. It was here I got to talk to Lea and Manuela and their team as well as the other bloggers. What an interesting team.
