Split & Zadar (Croatia)

12 July 2010

From Dubrovnik it was going to be quite a long drive with the main destination being Ljubljiana in Slovenia. On the way we made a stop in Split (Croatia) where I saw Dioceletian’s Palace, well known for its marble floors. In Split I enjoyed walking around the markets, posing for photos on stone chairs, buying a marvellous peach and purchasing a bunch of grapes.

We departed Split and after a long days travelling we arrived in Zadar. Zadar was merely intended as a stopover destination for us, we had a hostel on the waterfront (not as flash as it sounds) so we all had our last swim in the Adriatic Sea before we were to head inland away from  ‘beach bumming’ and onwards to further experience the ‘culture’ of Europe. Contiki had booked us into a hostel which only had one shower for the boys and one shower for the girls; that is twenty girls had to go through one shower in the morning! ‘Concept’

    Hi
    We stayed in Zadar, probably the same hostel, I remember it being quite nice, but cant remember the shower situation. We had a family room.
    Did you get to go to Plitvitchi lakes? awsome.
    Seems like you have really enjoyd your travels.
    Where is your next destination and your eventual arrival back in London.
