Europe » Croatia » Dalmatia » Split July 17th 2014

I utgangspunkte skulle vi, etter Budapest, til Zagreb og så til Split for å møte kjæresten til Synnøve, Stian, som skulle feriere der. Men så fikk vi vite at han ikke hadde pass og kom seg mest sannsynlig ikke til Split. Så vi bestemte oss for å skippe Kroatia og reise direkte til Italia. Etter vår lange og litt trøbblete tur, kom vi endelig til Venezia tidlig på morgenen. Venezia er den første byen jeg virkelig er glad for at vi er backpackere. Ikke det at det har vært gale å være backpacker i noen av de andre stedene vi har vært, men fordi det er skikkelig kjipt å ha rullekoffert i Venezia siden det er sykt mange broer og broene er bygd opp som trapper. Så for å gå over broen må man opp en ... read more

Dubrovnik: A world heritage site located on the Adriatic Coast, this walled city features cobbled streets and an inspiring Franciscan Monastery that was originally built in the early 14th century. This port is also our gateway to exploring Croatia’s fascinating Dalmatian Coast. The small village of Trsteno is where the fairy tale-like Arboretum can be found with its 300 year old Fountain of Neptune. The seaside resort of Cavtat is where we will find costumed performers who will entertain us with a folkloric show. Dubrovnik in the region of Dalmatia is one of the most prominent tourist destinations in the Mediterranean and the centre of Dubrovnik-Neretva county. Dubrovnik created the world’s first maritime codes in 1272. They had a sewage system in 1296, they built Europe’s first pharmacy in 1317 . Dubrov... read more

Hiya everyone - April here... Well, what an interesting week it has been! We made our way to the gorgeous Krk Island in Croatia and unbeknownst to us, we stayed at Croatia's best smallest campsite...it was amazing...simply for two reasons...the beach and the beach bar! We were in need of some comfort following our trip into the mountains in Slovenia and Krk Island certainly provided that. We did not do much on this Island apart from soak up the sun and skulk our way over to the beach bar for drinks. From there, we flew home for a very special wedding indeed...The wonderful Sara (Si's cousin) married Hugh. What a fine wedding it was indeed. Some may say we should still be travelling, but this wedding was not to be missed and it was worth it!!! ... read more

1st June – 16thJune Having spent a few lovely days at Largo di Garda, we moved onto Croatia. 6th June Firstly, we found that we needed to buy a vinette in Solvenia, lying about the size and weight of our van we got away with €15 for a seven day period. Which of course we will have to buy again when we return through the 30km stretch of Solvenia we travel through to access Croatia, making Solvenia the most expense country per km, than anywhere else we have been to! Starting our Croatia trip at Novigrad where we had been previously was a good call as they had put on a food festival for the tourists. Local fishermen cooking up squid, mussels etc. Wine, traditional music and dancing, not a bad start. 8th June Moving on ... read more

Heute war also Sightseeingtag in Split. Ich muss gestehen, ich habe sehr lange geschlafen, weil es ja auch kein Frühstück, wie in einem Hotel gab. Dann bin ich aber los. Quer durch die Altstadt vor die Gallery of Fine Arts. Die war vom Reiseführer empfohlen, ich bin aber trotzdem nicht hinein. Dann zur Statue von Gregorius von Nin (einem kroatischen Bischof) und zur Ruine der Kapelle von Arnir. Beides ausserhalb des Golden Gates zum Palast von Diocletian (der Palast hatte ursprünglich 4 Tore). Dann in den Palast hinein und Besichtigung des Stadtmuseums. Danach Ausruhen am zentralen Empfangshof des Palastes bei einem NesFrappe. Anschliessed Besichtigung der Kathedrale inkl. Glockenturm und des Jupitertempels. Dann in die Kellergewölbe. Im Anschluss daran noch ein Eisbecher an der Promenade "Riva" und über einen Supermarkt zurück zum Appartment. Nach einer Weile nochmals ... read more

Heute bin ich von Dubrovnik nach Split gefahren. Alles hat prima geklappt. Um 11:00 bin ich in Dubrovnik mit dem Bus losgefahren und kurz vor 16:00 in Split angekommen. Dann mit dem Taxi zur Unterkunft. Allerdings war das doch kein Hotel, sondern nur eine Appartmentvermittlung in der Altstadt und die Vermittlerin hat mich den kurzen weiteren Weg durch die Gassen mit ihrem Motorrad mitgenommen. Wir beide ohne Helm und ich in der einen Hand den Trolley. Sie ist dann sogar nochmals zweimal losgefahren um fehlende Batterien für die Fernbedienung des Fernsehers zu holen. Beim ersten Mal hatte sie die falschen. Dadurch war es mir aber immerhin möglich heute Abend deutsches TV zu kucken. Ich war dann auch noch schön essen: kalte Platte mit Schinken und Käse und Pasticada, was ich rückwirkend mit einer Art Sauerbraten vergleichen ... read more
