Split, Croatia

September 4, 2005

Sorry it's been a while since we posted an update. We've been enjoying ourselves on the Adriatic coast in the Croatian town of Split. We took the train from Zagreb which was interesting - a fancy brand-new train rolling through villages with collapsed and abandon buildings.

Split is quite nice though. We have a great apartment we are staying in. The standard accommodation here is to stay in private homes which have rooms converted to house guests. Ours is the home of a sweet old Croatian lady who doesn't speak a lick of English - though we did manage to communicate that we would like to borrow her kitchen to boil some eggs for breakfast. She was so kind and gracious.

The center of Split is Diocletian's Palace, a most impressive Roman palace that is still in remarkable shape, though it's been re-built and built on to over the centuries. Almost all the streets in town are paved in white marble, which is worn so smooth; it's amazing.

We'll be here two more days, then we head down the coast - probably to the island of Mljet, then down to Dubrovnik before we begin the 6-day haul across Serbia & Bulgaria to get to Istanbul. No high-speed trains here!

Love to everyone!
L&N


Also, we added more photos and journal to Maribor, Ljubljana and Zagreb.

Thank you for bringing your friends along on the trip. I'm enjoying it from afar. And deciding where my next overseas adventure will be. ;)
