Sometimes you just have to get away. Sometimes, when you’re living in a foreign country, you have to take advantage of a local holiday weekend and get out there and explore. And sometimes, you take a road trip to do both.
We had an unexpected long weekend and hightailed it to the Croatian coastal town of Split.
Split is just your average beautiful, ancient coastal town boasting a walled city, incredible architecture, dozens of beach-facing cafes and bars, robust shopping and a killer clock tower view.
Almost every alleyway revealed hidden treasures, including tucked away fountains and wall art.
Oh, and this guy:
When do we move?
And how fantastically vintage-holiday does this all look?? (All of these photos are unedited…for better or worse). Our hotel wasn’t too shabby, either. We spent our last hours poolside, hopping between it and the pebbly beach.
We also had a 4 am phone call our last morning in Split (yuck time zones), but the upside was getting to take in a morning sunrise on the Adriatic.
Also – fresh seafood is the bomb.
Can’t wait to come back! It’s happening.
