Korcula Island Holiday Planning & Travel Guides

Korcula Island Holiday Planning & Travel Guides

When John and I back-packed around Europe 10 or so years ago, we lugged a chunky Lonely Planet guidebook and a hefty train timetable (we were interrailing) around with us the whole time! In today’s world of social media and blogging, the popularity of the guidebook may have dwindled a little. There’s some excellent on-line travel guides and plenty of real life accounts of people who have visited destinations and share their “insider” tips.

Here’s our low-down on some of the most useful websites and blogs on the internet to help you plan your holiday to Korcula this year.
