We arrived in Zadar after travelling through many hills and rivers, all very pretty to look at through the coach window. In Zadar many of the buildings are terracotta coloured and in the old town the streets were all cobbled, making it a lovely place to wander round. Unfortunatley the heat was very extreme and we moved from shade to shade, unable to stand in the sun for too long. We had our first taste of croatian ice cream, which was very creamy and comes in crazy flavours like jaffa cake, and sat on a step eating it. It was at this point that we noticed just how clean the streets are, and I wiped my finger along the paving to find that there was not a trace of dirt on it. We went to a monastery where we clombed up a tower, allowing us to see Zadar from above. We could then see how big it is, and also could see across to the islands. After a day here we took the bus to Biograd, our home for the next 5 days.
