Euro Tour :: Split

Following Berlin, I flew to Split, Croatia, the birthplace of my paternal grandmother. I spent 6 days there touring all around the city, and meeting my 2nd cousins Silvana Blašković and Zoran Marinković. They were great hosts and added more pieces to the puzzle of my family history and heritage.

A great sunset on the Adriatic is coming.
