Master's holiday - Croatia 2018

This year the Master, Dr Roger Watson and his wife June, took us to Croatia, known best by Roger from his sailing. 

The group was based in Split, where we explored the ancient roman Diocletian’s Palace, the Venetian quarter, and the later Baroque period buildings.  Trogir, was like a smaller version of Split, a maze a limestone alleyways, peppered with historical buildings and ice cream parlours.  On the Island of Brac we were treated to an education in stone masonry, with a leisurely bar-b-que lunch at a tavern situated on a hillside affording fabulous views of the sea across to Split.  The final day featured a trip inland to the village where the Croats stopped the advancing Serbian forces in the 1990’s, before another unhurried lunch at a private farmstead, renowned for producing award winning prosciutto.

The Croatians are proud of their heritage and we were entertained by local musicians singing old national and family songs at most places in which we dined, pertinent as the Master is a fan of folk music.   A fuller report of the holiday appears in the November electronic edition of La Fleche.
