Driving along the Dalmatian coast is breathtaking. It reminded me of a road trip I once took from L.A. to San Francisco on California's Pacific Coast Highway. Winding roads, high cliffs, and scenic views of the water. Our way to Dubrovnik was a little slow moving coming from Split, but really...there's no other way to get there. The major interstate that goes through Croatia suddenly stops at some point close to the Bosnian border. For political and various other reasons, there is no major highway connecting the bottom portion of Dalmatia to a faster route. This allowed us to drive along the coast and even through Bosnia Herzegovina for 20 minutes. Despite the slow pace, it was a beautiful ride.

And the perfect ending to our day trip... Returning home to our apartment, sitting on the balcony, sipping wine with a book, and watching the sun go down. Ah...vacation!
