Maybe I have been in Dalmatia too long, but for me there are few things more romantic or exciting than arriving late at night by ferry to a new destination.

After looking over at lush Korcula for some 12 years, it was a delight to finally extend my knowledge of the island south of my adopted home of Hvar, which had been hitherto restricted to running around the old town in 20 minutes on a brief ferry stop a decade ago.

There is a stereotype about Dalmatians that they are lazy. Perhaps it is true. Sitting in the sun over a coffee looking at the Adriatic and waiting for the tourists to come seems to be a reasonable way of life, much better than working all day in an office in Manchester for sure.

After many years of getting to know each square metre of the island of Hvar, it is time to get to know the rest of Croatia a little better, and I was delighted therefore to accept an invitation to take part in the second Touristar series 'Discover Croatia', hosted by Emmy-award winner Ashley Colburn.
