Island hopping in Croatia

Dubrovnik sits on the Adriatic sea and is surrounded by a host of small islands.

We went island hopping to some of them; Lopud, Kolocep and Sipan. They were beautiful and wonderfully peaceful. I really liked the fact that they were populated by local people, not overrun by holiday homes. It felt like a private view on a world that hadn't changed in hundreds of years, almost like time travel.

Little harbours, olive groves, tiny churches, steep walks ending in spectacular vistas, kittens playing and locals sitting in the shade. I could have stayed there forever.
