The Bongo waits patiently for the ferry to leave Korcula then takes its safely to Camp Ciste for our final camp together. From here we travel to Jadrija to stay with Cindy and Ken in a bnb till Friday when Meryl flies to Gatwick then on to Me York with Jessamie to visit Justine. I will be driving back to UK to pick Meryl up from her flight back. We will then spend a night with Winnie, Alex (they're engaged) Jessamie and Habib before driving to Bridport and journeys end. More to come yet :)

Generations ago,the inhabitants of Korcula dug out the rocks from the soil to plant olives, figs and carob. The rocks were piled between the rows simply for storage and they are still in use today. They are also good at building dry rock walls and houses.

More of Korcula with Meryl and Marco.
The Bongo cruising the Adriatic on the way to Korcula Island and the very old and very great ancient city of Korcula, birthplace of Marco Polo (apparently)

More around Privlaka, including stumbling across the remains of a Roman Villa on our evening cycle ride.

And Zuljana, named in the first century by the Romans after St.Julian, so it's old, quiet and beautiful. Several days lazing in the sun and swimming in the Adriatic.
