    Catalin is a great place - as you aptly point out - to escape all that can be the Southland!

    I like the sound of just touring the island for an overview. What a lovely Island to visit... just sitting watching those boats would be great. Woah overload on great food by the sounds of it:-)

    The Pancake Cottage sounds like a real deal and a hearty meal!
