Unexpected meetings can add an injection of excitement to any travel experience. Such was the case while recently road tripping through Istria, a beautiful region of Croatia often overshadowed by the more touristy Dubrovnik. We encountered a group of Austrian bicyclists, and took a moment to admire the countryside together. Austria and Croatia, two of […]

I must be excited about my upcoming Croatia trip if I’m going through pictures from two years ago. Around Easter 2015 we did a road trip along the Dalmatian coast from Dubrovnik to Zadar. I took this picture at a beach in Omis, as proof that even the dogs are friendly in Croatia. In May […]

Starting in Dubrovnik, the drive up the Dalmatian Coast through Split is wonderfully scenic. As my friend was driving us towards the Bosnian border we came upon this stunning landscape. Play a game of ‘count the colors’ if you have time on your hands. Every hue seems to blend together as if they were meant […]

I ‘split’ this blog entry into two parts. One for the city of Split, where we spent the most time, and another for the drive to and from Split, which was beautiful in its own right. The city: Split is the capital of Dalmatia, so easily the busiest city I’ve seen in Croatia. Parking seemed […]

I have a thing for walled cities. I loved the medieval feel of Carcassonne, the artsy mood of Lucca, and the wine tasting in Laguardia. However, for the best walled city in Europe, my vote goes to Dubrovnik, a place ‘Game of Thrones’ fans will recognize as the filming location for King’s Landing. You can […]



Dubrovnik – Deep blue sea, tell the world…

…that a Croat loves his homeland. Those words are from the Croatian national anthem, and describe something I love about this country….that the locals love their country so much. It makes it easier to enjoy a place when you see the sense of pride in those who grew up there. Some places like Albania and […]



A waterfall park…seriously?

Croatia Zadar, Croatia   May 7, 2013    By

Getting here was a pain. I woke up the morning I was leaving, and realized I forgot to pay my electric bill. I had to drive to base, make a deposit, go to the bank, etc. I ended up making it to the airport 90 minutes before the flight left, so I thought I was […]
