Croatia

Landing in Split, the heat was immediate and the breeze was non-existant. In the market and the castle it felt like everything was moving in slow motion from the heat. A morning sufficed to get a feel for the place, and by early afternoon we were on the ferry to Korcula - three hours away.

The old town seemed straight out of the middle ages. With a layout like the veins of a leaf, every turn leaves you wondering what comes after the bend ahead. The beaches are mainly stone, but secluded and with great water. A boat rental gets you out to the smaller island and near private coves. Beware of the sea urchin when you're in the water - however they do make a tasty snack.

A few shots from the trip:


Top tips for a visit to Korkula:
- Fish and Fun for a boat excursion
- Stay in an old town apartment instead of hotel
- Be prepared for rocky beached
- Check the ferry times (Dubrovnik maybe more convenient than Split)
