A Pensive Moment in Lumbarda, Korčula

The allure of Mediterranean living is powerful in Croatia.


Standing at the end of a pier jutting out into the Adriatic, I looked out at the rugged hills of Croatia and contemplated my life goals. Behind me, a few meters away from the coast, plump olives were being harvested to produce some of the finest olive oil I’ve ever tasted. The grape vines that blanket the hills between the olive groves had recently been harvested, producing incredible wine varietals that few people have ever heard of. Beneath me, the crystal clear, warm water was teeming with fresh, delicious seafood.

Nothing is perfect. Seldom does everything fall neatly into place. But here on this Mediterranean shore, in a village called Lumbarda, perfection, for a fleeting moment, seemed possible.
