Plitvice Lakes

I love nature and am a big fan of hiking, so I was delighted when I had the opportunity to hike the Plitvice Lakes in Croatia’s Nacionalni park Plitvicka jezera. The park is the oldest in Southeast Europe, one of the first natural sites designated a UNESCO world heritage site and just chock full of […]

Loved hiking through the park as well. I have to say – in the middle of August, I rarely saw so few people!

This place is high up my travel bucket list. Great photos – it looks like hardly anyone’s around!

I went to the park really early, around 8 or 9 am so I could try to avoid the main crowds! To get these shots, I also waited for what felt like EVERYONE to pass me by, ha!

[…] take care of the logistical planning – a rental car is really necessary to see for example, the Plitvice waterfalls, as the national park is in a remote part of the country without readily available public […]

[…] if you do!). I visited Slovenia for 3 days after my trip to Croatia, as it’s relatively close to Croatia’s Plitvice Lakes and I went northward to Slovenia after Croatia and then on to Venice. This is the day by day route […]

Looks gorgeous – well up there on the wishlist!

Hi Suzanne! Glad you liked the post. If you haven’t been to Croatia, I’d also recommend looking into Krka waterfall national park where you can actually swim in the lakes. Happy travels!

what about the cooastal areas in Croatia? We really want to travel to Croatia and just hang out on the beach. Suggestions?

Split, Croatia

Split was the last leg in my Croatia tour. I have barely any pictures from my stay and to be honest, remember it the least. I think I spent most of the time walking around and was simply photo’ed out after almost two weeks of traveling and taking pictures. The city is famous for Diocletian’s […]

Loved my time in Split….fun to just wander around and soak up the cafe culture of town.

[…] Croatia and its neighboring countries. The focus of my trip was to visit Croatia – Dubrovnik, Split, and the Dalmatian Coast are great new spots to visit if you’ve already been to Italy, France and […]

Montenegro’s Old Town of Kotor

Kotor is known as one of the most well preserved medieval towns in the Mediterranean, with an abundance of squares, churches, cathedrals and museums. It only took around an hour or two to explore on foot but the cobble stone streets are windy and narrow. I’d imagine it could be hectic during prime tourist season […]

Montenegro! <3

ha, was this on your list? I went there a bit unexpectedly but it was very cool to see the old town and also the lake!

This is such a beautiful place, we hope to visit soon. Great pictures.

Bay of Kotor

  The drive around Montenegro’s Bay of Kotor is long but break taking, with a full view of the sea and red roofed houses dotted all around it. The shot above was taken on the way back to Croatia, where I took the 1 hour ferry and cut straight across the Bay. We visited the […]
