Lost in Croatia

Up early to avoid the crowds but not the heat, I think it was 30 hot & humid.

Our planned afternoon hike was cancelled so someone (not me this time) wanted to go to Marjan Hill which ended up been a hike. We peaked a little too early when we saw an empty flagpole thinking we had reached the summit only to turn around to see the Croatian flag on another point. We took hike trials, roads, looked at churches, things we had no idea what they were. It was totally worth it, including getting lost trying to find our way back to the city. Maybe not so impressed about the number of steps we went up.


After a couple of hours recovering under the air con we braved the streets again where we discovered a evening walking tour sounded great so we signed up then realised how much walking we had already done. However we learnt about the Diocletian’s Palace which is the area we are staying & what really killed us back up Marjan to the first view point which was worth it.
