apologies for the gap, internet on the island was predictably scarce. however good news I have some pictures for you since the laptop here in zadar is the best so far. transport to the hostel at pasman was suitably chaotic, albeit straightforward; first van, then tram, then bus, then bus, then ferry, then bus, then van, then walking. The ferry being the most enjoyable leg with amazing views of love island, a brilliant heart shaped island, and badly needed ocean breezes.The first obstacle - our accommodation wasn't at pasman but the next town over - mulyana (or something like that). Second was the lack of signs and English speaking townsfolk, eventually we found an American migrant who pointed us to a non-de-script housing block. From then on the island was amazing, the host Anna greeted us with cakes and raki, our accommodation was right at the top and had a brilliant view of the bay, the bread was fresh and the water clear. One local feature was an incredible underwater shelf which let you walk the first 200-300 metres or so. The best part is that we dodged all the rain predicted for zadar and had glorious sunshine throughout
(Russell was rather disappointed).
We have since arrived at the old town hostel in zadar - admirably named as its just off the main old town square. the town is lovely and small but a fairly generic for Mediterranean town. definitely a good place to pass through rather than stay.
ill post another update at some point in Italy as we are going to be a little busy for a few days so i don't know when ill have a breather. We are all healthy and happy if slightly sleep deprived.
See you soon
