Exploration: Betina, Croatia

This village is a genuine labyrinth of alleyways. If I lived there, I’m sure I could lose any potential pursuer in under a minute.

Non-verbal Code-switching

I don’t drive. However, I use driver’s hand signals to communicate with them. Whenever a car stops to let me cross, I raise the hand to them that isn’t holding the bag of books or TARDIS travel mug to say thankyou. I don’t ever see other pedestrians do this. I think I got this from my dad, watching him drive, and I thought this was a nice way of showing respect and appreciation.
