In our wonderful, usual lack of planning, we had kinda missed the fact that to drive to Dubrovnik from Zadar, we had to go through about 10 kilometers of Bosnia.
Oh. We didn't know if we could do that in our Eurodrive lease car. We had heard you had to pay 50 euro special insurance as you enter Bosnia . We had also heard lots of other negative things about Bosnia from years of media coverage in the 90's in Australia. Funny how no real knowledge or experience, ...

Everywhere I went, I would hear someone pointing at a house and saying "I think that’s the Marco Polo house." I have no idea which was the Marco Polo house, but surely I saw it somewhere.

... the Medjugorje Youth Festival at the beginning of August, but the timing's not right. I guess I'm still a little cautious about apparitions that aren't approved yet by the Church, especially ones that have been the source of more than a small amount of controversy on the part of the seers and their spiritual director.
