“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins

Day 109 – 21st August, Friday. Vranska Jezera National Park (Lake).

The lake is a beautiful bird sanctuary, 2-5metres deep and totally calm. Boats are for hire at 150 kuna per day (~£18) However, it is not nearly as clear as the sea or the Plitvicka lakes and is more of a green colour than the turquoise we have seen elsewhere. So the snorkelling gear remains untested.

We have booked ourselves on a boat trip around the islands of the Kornati National Park for Sunday and have been told the water is the clearest of any along Croatia’s Adriatic coast.
