We’ve not written a lot about Mljet in Croatia. Not much happened when we were there.
But why not write about a destination because nothing much happens? Especially when that is precisely part of the charm. We walked a lot, we sighed a lot, we soaked up surroundings that were Garden of Eden beautiful.
It exists in my mind like a hazy dream.
Our hotel, the Odisej, felt as though it was still a bit of a throwback to Eastern bloc days, a wee bit out of time. Not a disaster, but not as good as other places we’d stayed in Croatia. From our balcony we did, however, have this view across the little bay in Pomena.

The Island on a Lake
An island on a lake with a 12th century monastery on it. Boats run regularly to SV Marija where there is a little café to enjoy a sandwich and a beer before a stroll around the island, which doesn’t take very long.
A Bug’s Life
And finally Polace – a quaint village with Roman ruins surrounded by lush forest and lapped by emerald water. I couldn’t really talk about such a scenic spot as Polace and then only show a picture of flower in a tin pot.
