    Split, Croatia

    July 29, 2017 in Croatia ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    I can't believe five weeks traveling with Hollie has come to an end!! We've just finished our last three nights together in Split with Louise and Alice and it doesn't seem like we're all going our separate ways in the morning. Split is a much bigger town than Dubrovnik and although it has similar architecture and character, it's definitely not as beautiful as Dubrovnik. Hollie and I were both exhausted from our travels so we spent most of our time chilling out and taking each hour as it came. I was told the Mall of Split was great for shopping so we checked it out and managed to get a few really cheap bargains, surprisingly as everything else in Croatia is super expensive! We caught up with Lou and Al both days which was great because the conversations are endless when the four of us are together. It's been a long time since I've been in full female company for that long and it was so nice to have four of us that got on so well. We explored Old Town, mainly in search of good food options, visited Bene Beach, argued with a creperie that sold Nutella crepes but poured chocolate sauce into a Nutella jar and pretended it was Nutella, and watched Mean Girls as a bit of downtime together. The four of us will definitely catch up again in the future, hopefully back in NZ. The last few weeks have gone by so fast and it's crazy that Hollie is flying back to NZ tomorrow. I've had such an incredible time traveling with her and we've had a great mix of laughter, partying, shopping, life counseling, singing, swimming, eating and so much more. It will absolutely be a trip together that we'll never ever forget and I'm so thankful to have a best friend that makes life so much better.Read more
