And just like that, with the last sun set over Dubrovnik, so it set on our European adventure. It was time to pack up and head home. SM and Id had a blast. Leaving early the next morning, we made a long day’s drive back to Zagreb, with a last lingering look of Croatia’s stunning coastal scenery. We passed through the unavoidable few kilometres stretch of road where Bosnian territory bisects Croatia, tediously waiting at the borders while noting the bridge currently under construction across the Croatian islands running parallel, that sometime in around a decade will ensure everyone can bypass this major inconvenience and remain in Croatian territory for the full distance. Ideally, we’d liked to have stayed a night in Zadar, but time didn’t allow, so a brief pitstop around the tranquil beaches of Omis was. We passed via the craggy Biokovo Mtns around Baska Voda, and inland through, what I think were, the Dinaric Alps.
