Fields full of red poppies, purple-orange sunsets, and eternal views of the azure Adriatic Sea. The Dalmatian islands of Hvar and Brac are sunny oases, allowing you to calm down and let your thoughts run loose in nature. In early May, this was exactly the type of environment that I needed. I was right in the middle of writing my final few thesis chapters, and the stress was starting to wear me down. I wasn’t leaving my desk much, and there was so much left to do.
Calming Down on the Dalmatian Islands
For a little while, I wondered if I should even let myself go on this trip. Should I be island hopping in Croatia while I might be better off typing away in the library? In hindsight, there is no doubt that the natural beauty of the Dalmatian Islands were the right choice: the calming vistas and warm air gave my mind a much-needed mental reset. Even if it’s just for a few minutes, I hope I can do the same for you by sharing these 15 photos of the Dalmatian Islands:
I was kindly invited on a press trip organised by the Split-Dalmatia tourism board. Curious about the region? Visit their website to discover more about all the different islands in Dalmatia.
