A Day Trip to Brac Island

Still feeling slightly suffocated by the cities of Europe, we jumped on an early morning ferry out of Split to Brac Island and the town of Supetar in Croatia.  I think Tiffany and I were both also starting to feel smothered by our work online.  In all my previous travels through places like South America and Africa, I’ve always had places that I simply couldn’t work due to the lack of connection.  However, here in Europe there’s WiFi absolutely everywhere.  No matter where we are, there’s always that temptation to go online and do a little bit of work.

Thus, on our day trip to Brac we made a point to not go online, but also to not race back home to get back to our computers.  Brac was a perfect place for this type of day.  After walking a good part of the coastline near Supetar, and finding basically every single business closed down for the low-season, we simply took up shop along the water and relaxed with a book in Tiffany’s case, or in mine messing around with some timelapse like you see below.

I can’t tell you much about Brac Island.  All I can tell you is that this day was needed more than any wild adventure.  Especially after being slightly disappointed with my time at Plitvice Lakes, this day break in the moderate warmth of the Adriatic sea was exactly what I needed.

Anyways, rather than a long drawn out article, I’m instead going to just show off some photos from the Island.  If you ever get to the city of Split, I highly recommend you take a day trip out to Brac, no matter what time of year.

Love these cars… who thinks I should buy one and try to drive it around the world?

This was in the cemetery on Brac tough light for a photo, but it still came out kind of cool.

The view from as high up in Brac as my lazy feet were going to take me.

Ever since my African scooter trip, I take pictures of about every scooter I see.

  2. Amazing photos, as always. Island of Brac certainly has its charms, but the famous “Zlatni Rat” beach is too crowded for me, and I did not get that “away from it all” feeling there, perhaps because of its proximity to the mainland.
