 Croatia,destinations   Aug 4, 2017    By

The alternate title for this blog is “I found my thrill, on an Istria hill.” What is it about hilltop towns that instantly make people like them? Could you put Detroit on a hilltop and have people call it ‘enchanting’? Maybe these towns inhabit an area of our mind that is obsessed with fantasy and […]

Rovinj is one of those amazing seaside towns. A place for relaxation, introspection…and indulgence. So many fish in the sea, and thus so many to eat!

Croatia – The Dalmatian Way!

Croatia Split, Croatia   Jun 20, 2016    By

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 […]

Shutter Love Sunday – Dubrovnik, Croatia

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 […]
