Hang me out to dry. Gladly.

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 #129: grow a garden full of beautiful flowers

With this wonderful Mediterranean climate on Brač there’s lots of warm and sunny days all year round and that means anyone can grow just about any plants and flowers they want.

Disclaimer: my anything-but-green thumbs are not in any way responsible for this garden. Aunt Nada is the wizard behind this magic. I just get to wake up to it every morning. That’s a pretty rosy deal, as far as I’m concerned.

Truck heaven

Reason #100: Brač is a great place for kids and grownups who love trucks

Because of the Brački stone industry and because there’s a lot of building and transporting going on, there’s also trucks galore.

Old, abandoned and rusting trucks:

Active MAN-ly trucks:

Red, blue, green and yellow trucks:

And it wouldn’t be a Brački truck if it wasn’t loaded with Brač stone:
