I don't have cable, so I'm always a bit behind when it comes to TV shows until I get a chance to watch them OnDemand at Dan's house.   

I just finished watching last weeks Bachelorette and I was thrilled to see them in Dubrovnik, Croatia.  It made me a little heartsick for my trip there a couple of years ago.

I was living in London at the time.  A friend from home flew over to visit and then we flew to Croatia together.
We started in Dubrovnik, and then travelled up the coast staying in Hvar for a few days, visiting a few smaller islands and then flying out of Split.
We went kayaking while in Hvar, and the next day, while having our morning coffee, we ran into one of the locals from the trip.  He invited us to a small island just a short boat ride away (it was safe, a mother and daughter were headed over too for some private swimming and the island was close enough to swim to from Hvar). 

There was a small bar on the island, a couple of hammocks, a dog named Sierra and a donkey named Mercedes. That was it. Oh, and gorgeous views.
And it was perfect.
