Split and Korcula Island

Location: Split/Korcula/Vela Luka/Blato, Croatia

The last leg of our journey brings us to the Dalmation coast of Croatia, and Nick's mum's home town of Blato on the island of Kortula.

Jodes at the top of the tower in Diocletians looking down on central Split.

Split on the mainland, the first of the many medievil walled towns along the coast - this is part of Diocletians Palace built around 300AD and the best thing is that it is not a lifeless museum but still a town where people continue to live in it and life just goes on.

Church tower in Blato - Nick's mums home town.

30 Oct 2006, 1:23AM

Fishing / port village of Vela Luka on the island of Korcula - these places are a gastronomic's delight, crammed with locally made wine, cheese, smoked ham, bread, olives and olive oil, figs ... and lots of seafood for Jodes!

30 Oct 2006, 5:53AM

It is a nice sunny day but veerrry windy and we want to travel the island a bit - a car is recommended, but we figure a scooter is the way to go as that's what all the locals do ... and we haven't done that on this trip yet!

Maybe Nick's mums old house?

Another little fishing village on the island (maybe Grscica) showing off the beautiful aqua waters.

30 Oct 2006, 6:19AM

Blue water and olive groves everywhere.

The old walled section of Korcula town with the mainland peninsula in the background.

Korcula town - this shot from within (another) medievil walled town where people still live inside. Probably the pick of the lot as it is a little smaller and seams more homely rather than full blown tourism.

31 Oct 2006, 6:43AM

Many of the doorways, portals and gates have runes or carvings above them to add the experience.

Entry to the old walled towns is often through gates like this (not all are as grand as this though) - wouldn't it be great if the front gate of your house looked like this!
