A cloudy 8 am start , catching the bus to Zadar, up the coast. Views of the Adriatic all the way. I wanted to stop several times to possibly find a beach and continue our journey later but Pat reminded me we had a ticket to Zadar and some of the people working for bus lines/ information are fed up with tourists wanting to do what they want.
We had been told that Zadar was not a tourist town but Diocletian’s palace was worth a wander through. It is full of stalls selling souvenirs, jewellery, fridge magnets, tee shirts, and covers an immense area of the city, shops apartments churches, markets, all use it as part of daily life, as probably was the case nearly two thousand years ago!
