View of Korcula and St Mark’s Cathedral    image Sue Martin

In the summer of 2022, I took a ferry from Split to Korcula. In the steamy heat of a Croatian July day,the ferry docked at this beautiful place in the midst of the Adriatic. A small island with lots of history and a maze of tiny streets.

From the tower of St Mark’s Cathedral I gazed across the deep blues seas, and wondered at the beauty and splendour in our world.

St Mark’s Cathedral was built in the 15th Century, in  Gothic-Renaissance style and has  two Tintoretto paintings.

Journeying alone can be fun and gives me time to let the day wander into my mind through the sights in front of me and a real sense of place and the history of days gone by.
