Just strolling in Split

I really enjoyed my day at Split even if we were mostly woundering around. Our first goal was shopping but that did not work out so well as stores were closed pretty early for a Saturday (around 2 pm)! So you shoppers beware.. get there early as from what I have seen there is some nice shopping to do. Get your Kuna's ready!!
My day at Split was my last full day in Croatia before heading back in Switzerland and we ended up on tinny streets where the walls of each buildings are very close to one an other. People living here can must probably borrow sugar from their neighboors by simply stretching out there arms through their windows.
Our walk then took us to the Riva, Split's palm fringed pedestrian waterfront filled with bars and coffee terasses where you have a great view on the port and sea.
When in Spit you can hop on different ferries to go around the different gorgeous islands of Croatia such as Brac. Buying your ferry ticket in advance (1 day before or early in the morning) would be a good idea as these boats get filled with tourists very quickly.
We also turned out in Diocletian's palace one of Unesco's world heritage. This masterpiece was build as a grand retirement home for the Roman Emperor Diocletian.
Outside of the old town, Split to me is just an other city. The buildings here look all the same, and have a sqare shape that reminds me of hlm in Montreal.
We ended our day with a great fishermann plater that was ultra fresh and tasty.. Captain highliner, eat your shorts!!! For those of you interested in a good sea food meal.. walk.. dont stop at the first restaurant you see.. Go out in smaller streets where the locals eat, if you stop to fast you might be desapointed!!! I know I wasnt =)
Many thanks to my friend Elvis that invited me here and sowed me around this awesome paradise!! Please.. invite me again soon =)
