Reason #131: life on Brač is a real-life laundry detergent commercial
The sun is shining, the air is clean, the wind is blowing… yes, washing your clothes here feels like you’re in a TV commercial for Ariel washing powder.
Not all year round, of course. There are wet, cold Jugo days when you can hang your clothes out for days and they never dry. But there’s always another sunny day just around the corner if you wait it out.
Some clothes were hurt during the making of this commercial.
Reason #127: parsley, sage, rosemary and thyme
Hiking or cycling on Brač in April and May you feel like you’re in flower heaven. Colors and smells are fantastic. Sage and rosemary are practically everywhere you look. And with parsley in your garden, you know what that means… you can’t help but hum Scarborough Fair as you go ;)

Rosemary. This was taken back in February when it was in bloom.

Now all we’re missing is some thyme. Obviously we can’t show up at the Scarborough Fair until we have all four. The guidebook tells us it’s definitely here somewhere, so off I go:

Reason #109: springtime on Brač is heaven on Earth
Trees are in bloom, flowers everywhere. Everything looks beautiful and smells great. The sun is shining, but it’s not too hot. It’s perfect for cycling, hiking, relaxing, anything you want. Perfect, just perfect.
