After being blown away by Dubrovnik I had high expectations when it came to Split and the Croatian islands. Though I did enjoy my time on Brač, the same could not really be said about Split and overall I left Croatia after almost a week feeling a bit flat.
I’m sitting in Sarajevo, reflecting on a very hectic week, in which I visited 7 countries in 7 days. And yet it has been the most interesting, beautiful and puzzling part of my travels so far. If you have never been to this part of the world, then I suggest you book your flights now!
My next stop after Hoi An was the imperial city of Hue – former capital city of the Nguyen empire. An impressive city with lots of atmosphere, you can tell that Hue has a rich history from the moment you set foot in it. Unfortunately, however, it also feels a bit like a shadow of its former self – perhaps due to the near total destruction of the city by American bombs during the Vietnam War.
