Its hot damn hot. The last few days have been +35 in the shade and its hot and sticky when driving Banksy, first time on this trip we wish we had air-con. Its been ice-cream, beaches, swimming in the inviting clear waters and evening walks as the heat is exhausting.

We have managed to cycle round Brac island and over a 500 metre mountain pass in the scorching heat. We left Banksy on the mainland and took the ferry on bicycles with tent an all. It was great to sleep in the tent instead of the sauna (Banksy).

Split (old centre), Trogir, Korcula and Dubrovnik are all wonderful places to visit especially in the day time heat as the walls of the old centres seem to keep the heat down.

Tomorrow we are heading to Montenegro a place we have read about and thought in could be a good place to live but after this heat I think not ! Hopfully the Duritmor national park can provide us with a cooler climate and trekking opportunities as we are missing the mountains.

Well its time to leave this oh so cool air-con internet cafe and melt in the burning sun or maybe have a dip in the Adriatic mmmmm.........

Dad, got the message and thats fantastic news.................see you after the recovery period..........maybe Germany ?

Hi John & Maria,
Great to see you are having a good time, we are in Mallorca at the moment so can sympathise with the heat, maybe England´s climate is not so bad after all. Let us know what you think about Montenegro,
All the best for the rest of your trip, I hope Banksy keeps going.
Bob & Jan.
