Vis - the island of my heart

In June 2004 I came back to Vis with my boyfriend after 14 years.
My first time in Vis was in 1990 when I was only 9 years old and it was also my last time in Croatia before the war that started some months later.

Even if I was only a child I ripromised to come back there one day as I was very impressed of the wild beauty of the Island, infact Vis was a military base and was open to tourism in 1989, only one year before my first visit ... I have to admit that the Island has changed a lot from 1990, there are a lot of sailing boats in the small port of Vis, many more restaurants and also some pubs, while before the war it was almost deserted!

Maybe it has lost part of its charm, but it still remains a wonderful island with untouched nature, great beaches and sea and with a particular atmosphere that makes you feel like you are on a secret island and makes you taste a pure sensation of freedom!
