... a good price for a room next us and off we went to make another attempt at getting lost. This town is on my list of favourites. Love the fact that you can wander down centuries old travertine alleyways with delightful little twists and turns that take you past homes and lead you (eventually) back to a quaint restaurant, bakery or ice cream parlor. I love holidays! We played crib, sipped wine and ate munchies on the penthouse patio while listening to ...
... in 348 B.C. The main street isn't anything too special, but as soon as you leave that it becomes tiny little alleyways and ancient churches. Really nice.
We took a quick trip to the supermarket to top up on the beers and snacks and Jason was introduced to Tomislav beer by Travis. It's one of the few dark beers you will see in Croatia and that seemed to be the only supermarket on the trip that stocked it and apparently became one of ...

We follow her down a narrow road to the ugliest house overlooking a stunning bay. It is a 60's concrete bunker over 3 levels built in to the hill. The doors open with a hip shove and there is a bed with what looks like a dead body in it. Hence we did not investigate and moved on. This place looks very interesting but would require a bit ...
