Croatia – part 2

Next stop was Split and it was nice to be somewhere ‘busy’ again – it is near the end of the season in Croatia so the campsites that are still open are very quiet with most people at the end of their journeys and heading home rather than going further south. From Split we caught a ferry to the island of Brac and were waved into a campsite in Bol by the friendly ‘grandad’ who sits by the road and watches the hills for arriving motor homers. As we sat in the empty campsite feeling lonely a GB plated motorhome arrived which looked vaguely familiar. It was the same couple who had parked next to us in the campsite in Split and had also been in the same site in Primosten, the owners being an english couple called Jan and John who we soon found to be great (and very welcome) company.

We spent 5 days in Bol, a very pretty seaside town with a lovely beach, before we travelled back to Split and on to Omis in convoy with Jan and John. We cycled, kayaked and had another boozy evening with our new friends. Sadly they were returning to the UK so we had to part company as we carried on down the coast to Dubrovnik. Once in Dubrovnik (after spending halloween evening eating and drinking in town), we picked up a hire car and left poor momo in Croatia for two weeks – I’ll explain why in the next post!
