Leaving the hostel in the morning and took the bus to the bus station instead of walking with my backpack. Purchased an one-way ticket to Split and when the backpack was collected and put under belly of the bus, there was extra charge for the luggage. Nice !

Got on the bus and occupied the first seat on the first row so I had a panoramic view of the entire ride.

We was asked to present travel documentation (passport) at the border checkpoint. Was I on the wrong bus ? I thought I bought the ticket from Dubrovnik to Split. Where was the bus heading ? It turned out there is a portion of the highway is cutting through Bosnia or perhaps the driver deliberately wanted to drive into Bosnia for cheap food before continuing onto Split.

Arriving in Split in the afternoon without accommodation reserved. Not to worry, I was greeted by locals who want me to stay at their apartment for a fee, or at their extra room at their homes to supply their income. I took my chance and followed a guy who took me to his mother's house and showed me the room. The price was decent, rather inexpensive. Originally I paid for 2 nights but extended for 2 extra nights.

Split is also home of the Diocletian's Palace, a World Heritage Site. The Roman Emperor built his retirement home here in Split in the year of AD 293, some 1700 years ago.

Spend some time in the beach. I love the beach here.

From Split, it is easy to take a day to nearby towns: my favorites: Omis and Trogir.

Enjoy the photos.
