After 3 full days we had to depart Hvar for our final destination of Split Croatia. We had one final drink at Carpe Diem and boarded the ferry for the two hour trip up the coast. Our entire group had fallen deeply for Hvar, and given the chance, we would have stayed there for the duration of the trip. But our plans were set an there were more adventures to be had.
The ferry left at sunset and headed north towards Split. There is something about the romance of travel that comes out in a slow boat ride. We passed sailboats passing in front of the setting sun, and watched the small uninhabited islands of Croatia slip from view into the darkness as night fell. The moon was out in full, which created a vibrant moonbeam on the water that trailed our ship along its path to Split.
