A few months back we were contacted by Marco and Kristin, a couple of travellers calling themselves Dos Trotamundos, who fell in love with Croatia during a trip there in 2012.

There was music, long tables for convivial eating and sharing the start of the festivities, and very large pots with hot and delicious food, cooked by different locals, many of whom prepared air-dried cod stew (bakalar), which is a traditional Dalmatian dish enjoyed on Christmas Eve (click here for Total Hvar recipe).
But also lentils, other mouth-watering dishes, and sweets like fritule.
Everybody in the village seemed to have turned up for free food, as you can see from the photos below!
