Our rendezvous with Max’s parents had basically consisted of exploring ancient towns, swimming in the Adriatic in front of our apartment, eating great seafood and imbibing alcoholic refreshments. This was a daily structure we could get used to. In keeping with these motifs, our last full day with Di and Thad was spent exploring the ruins of a Roman villa and then the old town of seaside Sibenik. We reveled in the town’s laid back, less touristic vibe as we took in some sights and sounds. Pictured above is the UNESCO protected Cathedral of St. James. Despite the cornucopia of cathedrals and religious sights we had been savoring for most of the trip, it was still hard not to be impressed with the scale and craftsmanship of this one. In fact, St. James Cathedral is considered the most important renaissance era architectural monument in Croatia.
