The lifesaver at Les Baines beach Hvar for possibly calling me Mr Gay Shark after my repeated questions about sharks in the area in an attempt to quell my irrational fears;
Bruno the scooter renter for making the hire of the vehicle and riding on the wrong side of the road a less than terrifying experience;
The little kid that we accidentally busted peeing on a tree who we chuckled at, only to find upon closer inspection that he was a strangely small and highly embarrassed grown up man;
Our apartment owners in Hvar who were extremely kind and were surely Croatia’s answer to Posh and Becks (sorry about your internet access being temporarily removed because a certain someone decided to download a movie torrent or two).
Mero in Nin for letting us drink aplenty from his secret distillery garage “laboratory” – the wine and grappa with its all natural ingredients and miracle of no hangover will remain unforgettable;
Old Ned and his hot grandma wife for their interesting tales of the many movie stars that they often entertained at their house including Bill Cosby and Robert DeNiro;
Our speedo wearing new best friend who patrolled the floating jumping castle at Zadar Holiday Village like he was guarding Fort Knox.
And lastly, the wonderful everlasting sunshine that gave us our tans that would compete with any respectable short shorts wearing British backpackers.
