It was clean and comfortable and just what we expected. Our host was very helpful and accommodating and her place was very clean and well kept. It was all we needed as two single females traveling and always on the go...a hot shower and a clean comfy bed to sleep in. Bonus: she provided use of her fridge and a selection of coffee and teas. I would stay there again and recommend to others. It's not a 5 star hotel with a spa...It is exactly as she described and exactly what we booked.

... has been slow because of the need to investigate archaeologically and architecturally. This meant we saw more of the outside of the house than the inside. It is one of the occasions where you feel the fee is a donation to the cause more than a reflection of the sights you can see. The ticket in was also a postcard, so that was a sensible bonus.
What I had not realised was Marco Polo’s role in a famous and bloody sea battle in the area in 1298. Marco captained a galley ...
Korcula was the first stop on our cruise from Venice up through the islands of Croatia to Montenegro.
This whole coast was pretty inaccessible to tourists until the USSR broke up, but is now fast becoming as popular a visitor destination as any ...
... border check. Looking to our right we could see the giant bridges of the tollway spanning the valleys, that we were winding up and down on narrow switchbacks. Hmmmm... We were starting to feel very uncomfortable, coming in the back door with no official status.
We turned around and tried to get back onto the tollway from where we were. The GPS is not coping with Croatia at all. In fact it hasn't successfully got us anywhere yet, I use it as a guide to get to ...
