After leaving the Istrian peninsula we commenced the island hopping part of the journey with Krk.

Taking a break from the seemingly endless idyllic beach camps we headed inland to the amazing Plitvice Lakes, a chain of 16 terraced lakes, joined by waterfalls, that extend into a limestone canyon.

Then back to the coast and an afternoon in Zadar.

Just before Split we spent 2 days at Trogir with its’ historic town and harbour as seen at the top of the post.

It was not uncommon at these beach camps to see ‘special menu items’ arrive.

Once we arrived at Hvar Island we took a day trip in a small speed boat to 3 of the outer islands visiting grottos and beaches along the way.

With Korcula being our last Island stay we climbed the scenic coastline heading south for Dubrovnik.

At this stage we decided not to drive through Montenegro & Albania but to journey to Greece by ferry.  Firstly Dubrovnik to Bari in Italy with a 5 hour wait for another ferry to take us to Corfu.

So to answer the question I posed in the title of this post, it seems all the kids and anyone into sailing.

  1. Missed your travel stories and fantastic photos but so pleased you have been so busy having a wonderful time in so many lovely places. Look forward to seeing you in October. Stay safe and keep loving your adventure. Love, D n G xx

  2. Your map needs updating – it shows that from Montenegro you go via ferry to Italy (Bari). It does not show that you go to Greece. Please update for us pedantic types.
