Road tripping is the best, as it allows for flexibility whenever we want. That also makes it harder to have a set itinerary, but here is the plan for the second trip leg.

 

13.May Split

There is a chance that we would have arrived Split a bit later than planned (plans can change when you're having fun!) which why we have added a couple of days in Split at the end. Also, it's quite a comfortable city with nice beaches, so I'm sure you wouldn't mind too much.

Accommodation: We will find a hostel which will cost from 12€ upwards

14.June: Split

Fancy a daytrip from Split? There are lots of islands to chose from!

Accommodation: We will find a hostel which will cost from 12€ upwards

There are lots of things to do here including renting a boat to go to the blue grotto, going cliffdiving, renting bikes to ride trails, exploring the green cave island, go snorkelling and watch unforgettable sunsets. In Jelsa there is also a restaurant that serves grilled mice if you are keen (link).

20.June Dubrovnik

We will have a full day to explore Dubrovnik, famous for its really cool old town which has seen an explosion of tourists ever since it was a filming location in the TV series "The Game of Thrones". We can walk around to explore the town together and find some nice cafés overlooking the sea.
