Once final papers were handed in at the University of Copenhagen it was time to head out for the sun! Myself, along with two girls from my floor in Bispebjerg Kollegiet- Caroline and Elena, flew to Split, Croatia for a few days at the beginning of June. Our trip was quite relaxing as we lounged on beaches and walked along the Riva each day eating ice cream. Although, we did do some exploring, and perhaps the best part of downtown Split was checking out all the super interesting nooks and crannies of Dioceltian’s palace. The best part though… definitely the boat tour of the five islands! Exploring new seaside towns, swimming in breathtakingly beautiful water and getting the chance to snorkel over a shipwreck made for the perfect beach getaway.
