With clean clothes and packed bags we left our cosy hotel and walked through the busy bustling markets, grabbing a smoothie for breakfast. Split has it's poverty and riches, as with any other big city. Like Provence, Croatia is known for lavender. Passing the boulevard full of palm trees we got to our ship- a big wooden ketch.

After we put our stuff on board, we headed back off board and into town as we had a bit of time to kill. We went across into town and to a market where we bought some apples then went to a pharmacy for some sea-sick tablets before going back to the boat. We got a beer each from the bar on board, and leant about the payment ...
