Hi -- this may be a request for reassurance more than anything else. I'm flying in to Split from the west coast of the US and need to get myself to Zadar after that. I usually do not sleep on airplanes, and if I do I don't sleep well, so I have to assume that I won't be at my best when I land. And that I might fall asleep between Split and Zadar, no matter how I get there.
I can see there is a bus, but that it does not leave directly from the airport, so I would have to get myself from Split airport to another location -- Split or Trogir? I'm pretty nervous about my ability to navigate multiple steps after a two-stop flight on no sleep.
My real questions are these --
1. I see that many people recommend going to Trogir from the airport instead of Split, because it's closer and in the right direction, which makes sense. However, it also looks like navigating the buses from Trogir to Zadar might be more complicated than from Split to Zadar, is that accurate? What about getting from the airport -- is one of these initial trips more straightforward than the other?
2. Will it be easy to find where I need to go if I have some experience navigating bus systems in other parts of the world?
3. And the most important questions -- will it be easy to get help with the buses at the airport if I am confused and less smart than my usual (and only speak English)?
(Renting a car is not an option for me. And I can afford a private transfer, though not easily and I don't want to go that route if I'm being unnecessarily nervous.)
