Bratislava & Croatia, May 2019

Transit through Bratislava, Zagreb, Sibenik, Dubrovnik.

Contains 479 photos, the last of which were added 1 year, 11 months, 22 days, 9 hours, 33 minutes, and 12 seconds ago.

A flying visit to Aila and Beny on my way from Vienna airport to the Croatian coast..

Such a good dog. SUCH a good dog.

Took a bus from Zagreb to the small town of Sibenik on the Adriatic coast. It's a super cute old town with a sheltered bay, and there weren't many tourists.

Hiked around the bay to an abandoned fort that is 'only accessible by sea' but there's a small walkway and some rocks to hop from land. Climbled over a wall to get inside, and it was enormous and epic. There were a few other people there, some of whom came the same way as me, some who came by boat. We all hitched a ride back on the boat, saving 3 or more hours of walking back.

Also ate at SHE a lot, and discovered the amazing veggie burger and chips at Bounty. Visited the forts in the old town; sat on the beach under the Blue Moon; swam in the sea.

Bus down the Croatian coast from Sibenik to Dubrovnik. Accidentally a day early. Hostel let me check in anyway. Dubrovnik is as touristy as expected, but much more impressive than expected, so I guess the hype is somewhat justified. I didn't feel a need to stay there long though. Walked around the old town, went on a boat right, climbed the hill overlooking the town and hiked back to the hostel. Ate two meals at Nishta.
