After walking around Split for a few days, Daniel and I decided to take a guided tour of the Dalmatian hinterland. Mostly we wanted to see Klis Fortress which is perched on a hilltop about 15 kilometers outside of town. The tour also included stops at Stella Croatia (a local family-owned food company) and Vranjača Cave.
When we disembarked from the airport shuttle bus near Split’s ferry terminal, the sun was just about to set. The setting sun cast the harbor in a lovely golden hue as we walked along the wharf to Split’s old part of town. The main pedestrian-only thoroughfare was lined with pricey restaurants and vendors hawking souveniers to the holiday-goers. Then we turned a corner and were transported back in time.
After staying put for a couple of years, I’m excited to announce that it’s time for some new adventures. Daniel and I both just quit our jobs and we are planning to travel the world for a few years. We have an empty nest now that his daughter is off to college, and so we figured now is a great time to go on some adventures together.
