We stayed in Split for a few more days to wind down from the boat trip. Our little B&B advertised itself as having a view of the water, if you sat precisely here and looked through the neighboring buildings. It was quiet at night and the owner was very helpful with any local information that we needed.
Days were spent walking the streets in and out of Diocletian’s Palace and savoring the sights. Split was full of tourists, many of them young and giving off that carefree backpackers vibe, but overall not too many to feel too overcrowded.
You are free to walk the narrow alleys and become immersed in the interconnecting architecture but have to buy a ticket to visit the underground chambers and a few other select attractions.
Willy and Jo-Ann were with us for a while and we walked the promenade to the east of the city – Idyllic!
Later on we take another walk along the promenade past all the restaurants offering 1 liter cocktails for 100 Kuna ($14 as of 2022). Why not? and we settle down at a table to enjoy the view and have a “sex on the beach” drink.
Onto the second liter, “Zombie”, and soon there was a bevy of young nubiles dancing in front of me and jumping into the refreshing water. Was it the alcohol or was it for real? Could not resist capturing an image for you all to enjoy.
On on that delightful note we will leave Croatia with pleasurable memories.
