    Split

    October 2, 2016 in Croatia

    After an exciting journey into Split with some storms and flash flooding, we managed to find a lovely little apartment right in the centre of town and even squeezed the bike up the stairs too!
    I had my first ever Hugo cocktail, my new favourite and dangerously cheap! Beautiful old town and amazing sunset, deceptively tasty looking ice cream (totally gross!) but the local dish of cuttlefish and squid ink risotto was deeeeelicious.Read more

    Nachdem unser Vorgehen Ankommen > Strand > Sightseeing in Sibenik so wunderbar geklappt hat, haben wir die Vorgehensweise auch gleich auf Split übertragen. Einen kleinen Zwischenstopp auf der Festung Klis (kurz vor Split) ausgenommen. GoT lässt grüßen.

    Der Strand selbst war...welch Überraschung sehr steinlastig aber für einen Stadtstrand doch ganz ansehnlich und direkt am Fuße des Marjan gelegen.
    Split selbst ist schon eine ganze Ecke touristischer als zuvor Sibenik, mit der breiten Promenade und dem Geflecht aus unzähligen kleinen Gassen in der Altstadt aber sehr schön. Verlaufen ist hier inklusive, da GPS bei den schmalen Gassen kaum klappt, so dreht man halt ein paar extra Runden. Neben Burgen und teuren experimentellen Jasmin-Cocktails hat die Stadt natürlich auch den ein oder anderen GoT Drehort wie bspw. die „Kill the masters“-street...sieht alles von den Gebäuden her gleich aus hier also nicht so leicht zu finden. Aber: Mission completed!

    PS: Sowohl Nagelschere als auch Rasierer vergessen, sehr mittlerweile aus wie der schmächtige Wolverine oder der bärtige Edward mit den Scherenhänden 🤦‍♂️🤷🏼‍♂️

    Split, Croatia

    July 29, 2017 in Croatia

    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

    City of Split

    October 29, 2016 in Croatia

    These are miscellaneous photos of Split. First are images of the market located near the dock outside the palace. There were flowers everywhere in anticipation of the Catholic All Souls Day (Croatia is a largely Catholic country). The statue is of Grgur Ninski who was bishop of Nin during the 10th century; he is honored by Croatians for fighting to allow them to worship in their native tongue as opposed to the previously required Latin. The other photos are from the harbor and the Stars Ura (old town Clock Square). The clock was built between the 13th and 15th centuries.Read more
