Boat and Bike Tour: The Island of BracMay 11, 2019 in Croatia ⋅ ☀️ 21 °C
After leaving Split, our boat sailed for the island of Brac, where we did our first cycling. It was a scenic 25 km climb, very steep hills, but everyone was glad we had the little assist from our e-bikes.
Brac is most famous for its beautiful white limestone which has been exploited since the days of Ancient Rome. The Diocletian Palace in Split was built from the Brac stone as well as parts of the White House in Washington D.C. Beautiful beaches and plentiful olive trees make Brac a great stop to begin our biking tour.
Some rain on Day 2 resulted in a change of plans. A Newfoundland singsong, a game of cards, and the Captain’s Banquet resulted in a great time anyway.Read more
