PostTraveler Log - 2nd Installment

And here is my second installment   welcome

July 15th

We arrived at SPLIT via ferry, after a 6-hour crossing of the Adriatic Sea.
SPLIT is the main city of the Dalmatia region, the capital of Split-Dalmatia County and the second most populous city in the country after Zagreb (capital of Croatia). It is an important fishing port on the Adriatic, as well as a major cultural and tourist centre; the old town is an architectural jewel, declared a World Heritage Site in 1979.
The entire city is built around Diocletian's Palace. This fortress was built in the 4th century as a combination of a luxury villa: a summer house and a Roman military camp, and was the site of Emperor Diocletian's retreat.

Traveler Log - 2nd Installment 9ac1e910

The palace is not enclosed, so there are no prices or opening hours.Inside there are houses, shops, restaurants and several narrow streets that are worth wandering through.
It has 4 fronts, and each one of them has an access door that leads to a private courtyard: the PERISTYLE. The doors are: SILVER, GOLD, IRON and AENEA doors.

IRON DOOR

Traveler Log - 2nd Installment 308eaa10

The truth is that, beyond being considered a World Heritage Site, we did not find it as beautiful as it is described, and we preferred to continue our walk through the old part of the city which, compared to Dubrovnik, it was quite disappointing.

The day came to an end, and after dinner, we went to bed looking forward to what awaited us the next day: a boat trip to the BLUE CAVE and the Island of HVAR.

16th of July

We got up very early in the morning and headed to the harbour, where we boarded a beautiful boat. The first point of visit was the BLUE LAGOON on the island of BUDIKOVAC

BUDIKOVAC ISLAND

While I was sunbathing on a deck chair, I felt something near me. I opened my eyes and... WOW... Look what I found...  affraid

Traveler Log - 2nd Installment 9c710810

The donkey was looking at me... I was scared to death!!! (I never asked how a donkey got to that island... Shrek wasn't there).

After this break and my close encounter with the donkey, we set off for STINIVA BEACH on VIS ISLAND.

STINIVA BEACH/VIS ISLAND

The boat anchored 100 metres from the beach (which you can see in the background), where you could swim to. The only detail is that, at that distance, the sea was 12 metres deep. I, of course, took pictures... from the top of the boat.

Traveler Log - 2nd Installment 1a816210

Really, an AMAZING place. A beach hidden in the mountains, I have never never seen such a wonder of nature. It captured all my senses.

After a couple of hours of enjoying the beauty of the place, we will return to our last destination: the BLUE CAVE, on BISEVA Island.

Traveler Log - 2nd Installment 642ef510

Can you see that little hole in the rock? It is the entrance to the cave.

And at the order of the ship's captain who told us: "keep your heads down", we entered the cave, OMG!!!! Look at this.... My eyes were not able to take in so much beauty...

Traveler Log - 2nd Installment C91de210

BLUE CAVE (it looks blue due to the effect of the light penetrating through the chinks in the rocks).

And finally we arrive at our last destination: the island of HVAR, located in the Adriatic Sea.

HVAR, in addition to the harbour and the coastal area, also has a Historic Centre.

Traveler Log - 2nd Installment 7c1a8b10

And from here we return to SPLIT, where, after a well-deserved dinner and a good rest, we prepare for our last day. Destination: KLIS Fortress (MEEREEN in Game of Thrones, for those who watched the series).

July 17th

We get up early and after a 20 minutes taxi ride, we arrive at the Klis Fortress.
Klis Fortress is a medieval fortress located in the village of Klis and is known for its defence against the Ottoman invasion of Europe in the 16th century

And there I was re-encountered with my natural "little windows", which allowed me to take these pics.

Traveler Log - 2nd Installment 55d7f510
Traveler Log - 2nd Installment 467b3010

From here, we went to the city of TROGIR.
Trogir is a historic town and port on the Adriatic coast, located 27 km west of Split. The town is built on a small island (approx. 1 km²) situated between the mainland and the island of Ciovo.
The city centre has been a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1997

And Croatia came to an end. We said a sad goodbye to that wonderful country, especially Dubrovnik.  Crying
But our journey was just beginning, and our next destination was  VENICE....
And there we go!!!!


Thank you thanks

I didn't look at the video.  I think the link works. It asked for permissions to see my contacts and said the owner of the drive would receive notice I viewed it, so I backed out.

edit to add... cobalt tones are so intense, this is something I wish I could go see, and so appreciated your blog post on the cave Smile

Oops... if someone else visits the blog, I will ask if the video can be seen.  I don't know if there is another way to attach it.... Crying Traveler Log - 2nd Installment 2596742691

This trip was really beautiful. Like everything in Europe, history and nature combine to make it amazing to travel there. thanks

Hi, Lil! I just found a message on my cell phone. Your gmail asking me for permission to access the video. Thanks to that, I reconfigured it and made it public. Would you mind trying again if you can see it? Thank you
Let me know if you can.

@Kaytown

How nice to hear that! I love sharing my passion for travel and I'm happy you liked it.
The blue cave was amazing. There is one just like it on the Isle of Capri in Italy, but I couldn't go in because the tide was too high the day we went there. I hope for you to see the video, which I already made public.
And Venice... wow, it's a beautiful town. I spent the best new year of my life there. On this trip I am telling you about, I went in the summer, and I was lucky enough to see the Festival of the Redeemer. The Venetians prepare for the party by taking their boats, equipped with small tables to eat, decorated and illuminated with colored lights and colorful lanterns; they make huge maritime caravans through the canals of the town, until they get to position themselves in the entire bay of San Marcos. This creates a big party on the water, with music, songs and food, creating a joyful, unique and magical atmosphere. I'll tell you about it in my next post.

Here is a sneak preview


Thank you

Thank you for watching it. As I said to Lil, I'm also in the video...
And I'm working in Venice. Have you seen the video I shared above? It's not mine, but it's what I could see on this trip. I have my own videos, but that one is better. thumbs

Edit: Ooops, Kay! I just deleted your comment... I don't know what I touched wrong... but I was able to find it and pasted it. Sorry...I usually do these things.....

Sorry, Kay. I don't know what I did... it got deleted ( or rather, I deleted it). I tried to retrieve it, but I had already consummated the mess.
