On the road in Croatia

Yesterday we left Dubrovnik and headed to Split. The drive, which briefly passes through Bosnia and Herzegovina, took around 4 hours and was a mix of stunning coastline and rolling hills.

We made a short pit stop in the town of Ston which is known for its impressive defensive walls (apparently the second largest in the world after the Great Wall of China) and the Ston salt pans. The “pans” are massive flats of land that are flooded with sea water which is then left to evaporate in the sun, leaving behind amazingly concentrated salt crystals which are harvested and sold. We were visiting too early in the season to see the salt pans in action, but we did get to taste some of the impressive high quality salt that they produce.

We made it to Split in time to have a delicious fish dinner at Bokeria in the old town followed by drinks and music at the Galleria Umjetnina. More fun to come.
