The Day I Sort of Got to Krka

In spite of having two almost full days in Split, I didn't make it to Krka National Park like I had been hoping. I still want to go and swim under waterfalls, but it hasn't happened yet.

When I checked into my hostel, I asked if there was a trip to Krka the following day, and what time it left and got back in. Originally I was told yes, there was a trip going & it would get back in around 5pm, which would be PERFECT for me. The guy told me he'd book me later in the day and to check back when I got back to the hostel.

The trip, it turned out, wasn't running the following day & I'd need to check at the tourist office for a trip. The tourist office told me their trips were 12hr days (8 thru 8) & seeing as I was having dinner with a friend at 6,30, it wasn't going to happen. I attempted looking at public transport, but with a need to change buses 3 times & catch a ferry, by the time I got there I'd have to turn back. When I told the girl on reception at my hostel she shrugged her shoulders telling me that all that's at Krka is a bunch of waterfalls. I raised my eyebrows at this remark, I kind of get that you don't appreciate what's on your doorstep and all that, but a bunch of waterfall's sounds like the coolest thing ever to me!

I gave up on my plan- there is always next year, and I feel I will undoubtedly end up in Split again & be able to take a tour (or perhaps hire a car). I just felt like I wasn't destined to go to Krka. Instead I spent a relaxing day at the beach in Split. I did consider going somewhere else, but that plan didn't work out either, and in the end decided that there wouldn't be many days when I could just lie around reading on my trip.

It wasn't until after my Croatia Sail trip that I sort of made it to Krka, we passed what seemed like a thousand signs for the National Park I seemed destined not to make it to. That's when our guide, Nick, told us that we were more or less passing over Krka & our first stop would be at a gift shop- come- services- there with a view point. It looks over a harbour in the National Park, so I skipped off camera in hand with several other girls to take some photo's.

So it's not perfect, and it's not the waterfall's, but it's something....

  1. If you ask me, that view's not bad either! Here's hoping you make it next year!
