The Sydney Herald reports today on an organised cruise around Dalmatia on a 28 metre wooden ketch. We've borrowed their photo to illustrate todays posting; the full link is http://www.smh.com.au/news/world/on-a-ketch-with-caruso/2007/12/07/1196812977122.html
It's a great account of some of the more appealing peculiarities of Dalmatia and we learnt something new - that Kurba Vela, one of the Kornati islands, actually means "big whore" and was named in the 19th century by an Austrian Governor who named it on the advice of a brazen local who assured him it was the Croatian name for the island.
