About this sound

Split is the second-largest city of Croatia and the largest city of the region of Dalmatia, with about 200,000 people living in its urban area. It lies on the eastern shore of the Adriatic Sea and is spread over a central peninsula and its surroundings. An intraregional transport hub and popular tourist destination, the city is linked to the Adriatic islands and the Apennine peninsula.

Hugely popular locations from the Game of Thrones can be visted throughout the city.

Papalićeva Street in Split became one of the Streets Seen in Slave Rebellion Scene.

Home to Diocletian’s Palace, built for the Roman emperor in AD 305, the city was founded as the Greek colony of Aspálathos (Aσπάλαθος) in the 3rd or 2nd century BC. It became a prominent settlement around 650 when it succeeded the ancient capital of the Roman province of DalmatiaSalona. After the Sack of Salona by the Avars and Slavs, the fortified Palace of Diocletian was settled by the Roman refugees. Split became a Byzantine city, to later gradually drift into the sphere of the Republic of Veniceand the Kingdom of Croatia, with the Byzantines retaining nominal suzerainty. For much of the High and Late Middle Ages, Split enjoyed autonomy as a free city, caught in the middle of a struggle between Venice and the King of Hungary for control over the Dalmatian cities.

The year of the sea grass…

DC Vekic blog August 14, 2018

This has been one of the toughest years with so much sea grass floating all over the Caribbean Sea. It devastated all our sugar white beaches from Barbados, Dominican Republic, Mexico …

This is definitely nowhere near as bad as it got, but as much as we had cleaning crews on sire there was not much to be done. The seagrass could be seen from the airplane all over. Over the water bungalows in Mexico and Jamaica look like they are standing in flood water.

It is just one of those years… We don’t have seagrass in Costa Rica, but Costa Rica is mostly covered in black sand. Cabo and Puerto Vallarta are on the Pacific Coast where we don’t have this issue, but everyone has already been there..

I think this article describes it the best, I did not want to go with such dramatic photos,  although everything they posted it quite true… Although the article is about Playa Del Carmen, it’s quite accurate about an entire Caribbean and we have a link to the current seagrass map… THE SUMMER OF SEAWEED is an accurate description

Expedia will never tell you about it, so always use your travel professional to plan your travel. We can even price-match…

 

 

DC’s Second Annual Big D Bash

DC Vekic blog June 21, 2017

A great event with a funny name! I was actually told people googled what Big D Bash meant, when I announced it last year, and couldn’t figure it out. Here is a few pics from our 1st DC’s Big D at the Breathless Cabo last year…

It started as an idea for my own personal divorce trip, but then a friend said “Don’t use the word DIVORCE, it sounds negative.” Especially because I was inviting singles and couples alike. So I thought: “Ok, no DIVORCE.. let’s make it a Big D.”

But apparently, I was the only one who had no clue what else big D meant, but since I already ordered T-shirts, we decided to run with it anyway, and by now we are all used to it.

My personal divorce after 17 years made me think about that first trip without your significant other. I thought it was important to create a trip where a person who just recently got divorced, would feel comfortable, and would have a built in support from their friends and family. We had couples, singles, everyone was invited as long as they were over 21! It was a last minute plan, but we had a blast.

One of the greatest reasons to pick Secrets the Vine was one of the biggest wine cellars in all of Yucatan. This resort has great food and service.
