Yeah, it was time to split from Zagreb. A 6:30 AM train and on to the Dalmatian Coast.
At first, everything was normal. It was a great train, very modern and fast, and the landscape was rolling corn fields and so on. I was reading, when after a couple hours I noticed how things were changing. Suddenly there were new things – olive trees, lemon trees. We were in a Mediterranean climate!
And now here we are in Split, Croatia. As much as Mark and I have traveled over the years, we’ve spent surprisingly little time in the Mediterranean. Well, now we’re going to make up for it – a couple weeks on the Dalmatian coast, lots of time around the Bay of Naples, and then a week biking in Puglia. Given our first taste of it in Split, this is going to be good.
