Three weeks ago we left Berlin in our car on a hot and sunny weekend and drove 1500 kilometers south to Croatia, took a ferry to the beautiful island of Hvar, put up our tent, tired from the long drive and a night in the car, when it started raining like crazy. Our tent was almost blown away by a storm during the night and when we crawled out of it the next morning our campsite neighbours told us that this was the worst summer ever on Hvar. Rain, storm and unusually low temperatures. At the same time Berlin experienced one of the warmest summers ever. I felt like packing and driving back home but the thought of another 20 hours in the car stopped me from it. Which was good because we had a wonderful time on Hvar, despite some rain and lower temperatures than we expected, but still loads of sun and beach weather. Turquoise water, Hvar's amazing landscape, beautiful little towns, fresh fish and having my three VIPs with me 24/7. Pretty close to perfect.
