REVIEWS OF CROATIA
I took part in the 2018 Korcula trip. It was a blast! Andy put together a trip package that exceeded all my expectations: fresh oysters and fish, vineyard, olive oil tasting, triathlon, community project followed by lunch with locals, boat ride, kayaking.
I'm a pretty experienced traveler but it would have been impossible for me to set up this kind of agenda with the touch of local facilitators as well as all the logistics that go with a triathlon.
I was dreaming of going to Korcula with Andy again this year (before COVID-19 canceled the event). I hope to make it next year, but there are so many other good Open World Racing trips it's hard to choose.
