La Dolce Vita

Greetings from sunny Croatia!
We arrived in Split at dawn this morning having caught the overnight ferry from Italy.
Earthquake aside (which thankfully did not directly impact the areas that we were in), Italy was lovely.
We were there mostly to relax but still managed four World Heritage Sites, including most of the Cinque Terre walk (part was closed), the old city of Modena, and a day trip to the Republic of San Marino.  We stayed one night in Rimini, which is bit like Vega on Sea.
We have this morning explored the Palace of Diocletain (Roman Emperor circa 293AD), the excavated basement and the historic area of Split.
We are not planning to stay here the night and will the afternoon get our bus to Bosnia, where hopefully we will sit still for a few days.
So the count at present is five World Heritage Sites, four countries, four espressos, a long boat ride and one gelatti each.
Hope you are all well.
