I stumbled upon a rumor of a festival island as we were leaving Pag, and with eyes full of determination I jumped on a hippie filled ferry before leaving a present for the guys. After enjoying the atmosphere on the ferry with Anita (the girl i met in Zadar), we went to the her house and received a warm welcome. The next day I was shown around the grape, fig, almond and cherry fields. Later in the evening we went to the old castle where her sis worked. Apparently there was a wedding nearby, so we took advantage of the situation and went wedding crashing. After dancing better than the newly weds, they kindly nudged us towards the exit. Anita had to work on the field, so I went exploring some jumpable cliffs, where I met a local with whom I exchanged some local fruits and herbs. After this he showed me the spots where I could go cliffdiving. We did a few jumps when suddenly Anita emerged swimming around the corner of the rocks. The local left us and we had an evening swim before climbing the sketchy rocks in the dark. We went to the festival that was on the other side of the island where Anita had lots of friends, which led to free ice cream and liquor. Then we went to the festival and danced until the early hours and fell asleep on the beach. The next morning we woke up with an inexplicable big thirst, Anita went to ask for water on a nearby yacht. After a while I went to look what took her so long. I found her talking to 4 Germans and a local girl who was generous enough to give us a wine breakfast. From that point on the boat became a candy store. People kept walking on and off the ship. One extra crew member and a quest later Anita told us we should go to the blue cave, a famous attraction close to Vis. So we raised the sails. The minute we took of, the capitain explained the rules of the boat: “If someone misbehaves, he get’s banned to tze little boat behind the main ship”.
With this simple rule in mind we could do whatever we wanted. Just enough wind to swim next to the boat or hang behind it. Everybody enjoyed the sweet sun on their naked bodies and the coarse towards the cave. After playing around the ship like dolphins, we remembered our quest: we had to bring a generator to the festival because they ran out of power. Without us there would no party, so we left the cave for what it was and quickly cranked the engine. We dropped anker close to a rock in front of the festival beach. Immediately we got the attention of two mermaids, a pirate and an MC that was dressed as a bird the night before. They climbed on the boat. I could see they were cold and hungry so we fed them with pickled herrings for the girls, bread for the bird and cheese with tomatoes for the pirate and liquor for every one who was cold. After a moment the generator found its place on the beach and the boxes started booming. After watching the sun turn all kinds of colors, the captain started crying out German orders to taxi the crowd back to shore. The original crew, Anita and me remained on the boat for a soup and a power nap in the hammock that hung from the sails. When our batteries where charged again. We went to main stage and pulled the last all nighter and took the bus back to Anita's home. When we woke up we made a big picknick and went to visit the old submarine dock, a famous cliffdiving spot. After 4 wild nights it was time to go back to me balls. I said my goodbyes to the family and took the ferry and the bus afterwards, to meet the boys in Mostar at the bridge.
