croatia: split & hvar island
i was in split and hvar only for three days, but was able to enjoy the loveliness of these places. split is full of beautiful old buildings, even if people seem to hate it. i only spent a day there, but enjoyed myself, wandering, looking, walking. on hvar, i stayed at a shady hostel and spent most of my time sunning on the rocky beaches, swimming amidst italian tourists, and drinking with my irish roommates. i had a blast. the ferry from ancona to split took forever, and i was wise to get a cabin--a 4 person (the cheapest) which was totally empty--i slept the best i had in my entire life.
