... drivers. We finally found Hotel Lana, which is about 30 minutes walk out of the town centre. The lady who runs it is Vanya, whose English is very basic. 'You bring passports and map!' Mind you our Croatian is far more basic. We know how to say thank you in both Croat and Dalmatian and that's it. It's a nice place and clean.

After a long day in the hot sun we were pretty exhausted since we haven't experienced proper summer weather since Melbourne summer. We had the option to ride on bikes a few kms to a lake.
