My thoughts about Split & Islands
Diving into the clear turquoise water, the cliffs, the lonely bays, the olive trees, the lavender fields, the vineyards.
Go on a sailing tour, explore the various islands, drink a Karlovačko beer, put Aivar on literally everything you eat (well, maybe not on the sweets, unless that’s your thing 🙂 ), listen to some Balkan beats, enjoy a wine tasting.
