From the moment we entered Croatia there was something magnetic. The highway from Hungary was the best we have seen anywhere with little traffic. Our greeting from the folk at the VW parts store in Zagreb could not have been more hospitable. And when we reached the coast and began the very slow drive south we have to declare that Croatia is a major highlight over the last 3 years.
It was hard to make serious progress down the coast as every turn in the highway presented another stunning village or beach that begged us to stay longer than a brief visit. The well-known highlights in Dubrovnich, Split, Zadar, and others are not the only highlights. The unknown villages that dot the coast and the islands make this the jewel. And the people of Croatia are genuinely beautiful people, always eager to please and help. We could wax on about it but the best way is to tell the story in pictures and hope the message is clear.
Croatia is a place we will return to in a couple of years, maybe rent a sailboat and see the country and its’ thousands of islands from a different perspective. If they didn’t get cold and stormy winters … ‘we could live here’.
Enjoy the sights…
Peace and Love
