Car hire time! Yay, freedom! Having your own car to zoom around in is always fun but the cost is pretty high so we are keeping this to a minimum. Our primary goal was to visit Plitviče Lakes National Park, which is hard to get to using public transport. So we decided to drive from Split to Pula and hitting Plitviče Lakes and a number of towns on the way - Klis, Trogir, Zadar and Motovun.

Our Time in the Islands were Hvar from Over

Hvar Town

Hvar wasn't originally part of the plan but it was an island A wanted to visit (but Korčula had won out). Because we had nothing else we wanted to do in Korčula, we decided to leave Korčula early and visit Hvar before staying overnight back in Split.

Off to visit a Croatian island! A visit to Croatia isn't complete a visit to an island. It took a long time for us to decide which island to go to (Brač, Hvar, Vis or Korčula) as there was a lot of factors to consider (how to get there, how to get around, what to do there etc.) But Korčula (pronounced “Kor-chu-lah”) won out!

We had a pretty good 24 hours in Bosnia and Herzegovina but it was time to move on. It was a decent side trip and I'd love to see more of Bosnia another time.
