... filling up with fuel in Croatia, heading for the cheap fuel. Problem was we couldn't quite figure how far away the border was. So as our low fuel bell was dinging, we pulled off the highway south and put another 100kuna of fuel in to get us to the Bosnia border. Asking a truckie at the fuel stop, he said we had another 50k to go to get to the border, so we were glad we had stopped. The truckie's English wasn't that good, so we double checked with the store attendant. ...
Our next stop in Croatia was Korcula, an island just barely up the road from Dubrovnik (which was just barely up the road from Montenegro – why we got to stay in town until 11 pm! Only a few miles to travel each night). I just could not get motivated in Korcula. The town is the rumored birthplace of Marco Polo and that seems to be their claim to fame.

... the rest of the morning and early afternoon lounging on the back deck reading and sunbathing. This was the life!. After another massive lunch on board from the cook who always seemed to need a beer to do his best work, we docked up on Mljet Island. This was the first time we met the hoards of wasps that inhabit much of the islands around this time of year, much to our annoyance. After a quick brief about the island and national park we all headed into ...
... 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.
