November 20, 2022 - The international media love affair with the island of Hvar continues, with Croatia's premier island nominated in 3 categories doe the prestigious 2023 Travel + Leisure World's Best Awards.  When I bought my house in Jelsa on the island of Hvar way back in 2002, I had not heard of the island 2 days before I arrived.
