The touring party hit the road to leisurely make their way to their next port of call, Zadar. Along the road they stopped at two little pit-stop towns, both different in their Croatian feel.
Morning ‘moffees’ were at Trogir. Trogir is a town on the central coast of Croatia between Split and Zadar. Its a preserved old town, known for its mix of Renaissance, baroque and Romanesque buildings. It lies on a small island connected to the mainland and the island of Čiovo by bridges. Parts of the medieval city remain. We zig-zagged through the island’s network of laneways and there was another bell tower to climb for Mr P and Ms C. A performance from Roman times was re-enacted in the main square much to the tourists’ delight. Don’t ask Ms X which town she was in as she has a habit of referring to it as Trilby.
The second stop was Or as Mr X called it ‘chipandadip’. A delicious lunch was had high up on a hill (lotsa steps again) before we hit the road to our final destination.
Our home for the next few days was Zadar where we positioned in a waterfront apartment where lots of serious Wordfeud games were had, home cooked meals and general R&R. The old town delivered in its preservation and presentation and didn’t disappoint.
