Friday 5th October It was another glorious morning and we are thankful for the great weather we’ve had on our trip thus far, today marking three full weeks, as we’ve only had one day where we’ve needed umbrellas, and, even that wasn’t for too long. We headed out for our morning walk and took this … More One full day in Split.
Thursday 4th October We were a little slow getting going this morning but we fitted in a morning walk along the promenade to the pebble beach. It was another glorious morning and my only issue was that the quick turn in temperature to the upside, whilst most welcome, left me little prepared with my wardrobe. We’d … More Split: we finally found it!
Wednesday 3rd October. It was a spectacular morning for our last morning walk in Zadar; mild, sunny, no breeze and calm waters. We did a loop of the Old Town and I’d previously suggested this might take an hour but it is just on 45 minutes. We packed up and left by 9.30 am for our … More Sibenik for one night.
Tuesday 2nd October It was a slow start for us today but we finally set off for our morning walk by about 8.30 am. Part of the itinerary for this walk was to stop off at the markets to buy items for a home dinner; we had such a fantastic view from our large balcony … More Our full day in Zadar
It was a beautiful sunny morning when we woke but, at 2 degrees, it was too cold for a walk. So we set off at 8.30 am to make our way for the 2 hour drive to Zadar. We’d noted yesterday how the cluster of low rise buildings in the area reminded us of ski … More Zadar: Day One.
Sunday 30th September Mr Zarko arrived promptly at 9 am to drive us out to the airport and we collected our car without any problems.

Friday 28th September. Our walking tour today was not until 11 am and so that gave us plenty of time to have a slower paced morning but still with an early walk. Mark and I had just been talking about how foreign Croatian is to our ears and how strange it is that the language … More Zagreb: first full day.
Thursday 27th September There was no time for a morning walk today as our taxi was booked for 7.45 am to take us to the airport for our flight to Zagreb. It was a beautiful morning though and a little bit warmer which raised our spirits in the face of an Austrian Airline booking. All … More Zagreb: we made it!
Wednesday 26th September It was sunny but a chilly 6 degrees for our morning walk and so we hugged paths that were bathed with sunshine. We even managed to find a cafe with seats taking advantage of the morning sun.
It was a cool but sunny morning as we set off for an early morning walk along the Danube Canal. Our plan for the day was to try and get tickets to watch the Spanish Horses in their morning practice session and then we had a walking tour for Schonbrunn Palace booked for the afternoon.
