"I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I intended to be."
Douglas Adams
For the summer of 2001, I had planned a great detailed trip for Croatia and Hungary, however being the lazy traveller that I am , I ended up spending more than half of my trip in a small, beautiful town, that I will never forget, VIS.
I landed there to visit a well-known cave, I had planned three nights, stayed for one month. It was simply perfect, I felt like I found my own piece of paradise populated by the friendliest , most wonderful people, the clearest sea, delicious food and wine...

I went back for a visit last summer, however, it seems paradise has been exposed, it no longer felt so special as an internet cafe opened ( the first sign that it's no longer a secret). But I guess tourism is good business for the island.

You're probably wondering why I am sharing my most sacred travel location with you even if I fear more tourists, but hey, there are no secrets on VT, right??

This beautiful wild mountainous island has captured my heart as I am sure it does to many. Do take the time to enjoy the peaceful serenity of Vis as well as its many activities.

Pros and Cons

    The Blue Cave tip is by far one of the better tips on VT.
