Day-14 (28 Apr—Sunday) Bol

After taking a 9:00AM ferry to the island of Brač, I walked 16 miles (25.5 km) with a 1500 ft climb over about half of the distance. That’s the end of my Croatian walk: 115 miles. Super tired, but found enough energy to walk down the hill for a dinner and a little wine. Am actually posting this the next day because it turns out that it’s not easy to get to Split, back on the mainland. I wasn’t going to opt for a 6:30 AM catamaran and miss breakfast; so I’m now taking a bus at 1:00 PM across the island and then a ferry to Split.

Here are some impressions: leaving Maskara; walking right next to vineyards; lots of cyclists on the last part of walk; my first view of Bol—I was elated because with the late ferry start, I didn’t finish until nearly 5:00PM which made for a long day; beautiful restaurant and view in Bol; here’s what much of the uphill terrain looked like—very rocky.

    Hi Kurt, sounds tiring but rewarding. Are you enjoying the Italian food as much as Marjie and I did? When you get to Split look to see if you can find a pasta and shrimp dish with safran-tumeric cream sauce. I had that in Zadar and it was one of my favorite meals of all time.

    Two of the cyclists were possibly Helmut and Marcella, the parents of Kathi and Resi!
    They have actually been cycling in that area.

      That would be an unbelievable small-world story.
      See you soon.
