Croatia

It’s been a busy year so far photo wise, but the downside of that is that I haven’t been very attentive with my posts. Over the next couple of weeks I’ll be changing that and providing more updates about my latest adventures.

With this post, I’ll rewind a little and retouch on a great trip I took back in May to Croatia.

I’ve always wanted to visit this country and many Aussies I’ve talked to have often raved about how much they’ve enjoyed it.

The month of May was a good time to visit because things were still pretty quiet and the package holiday hordes haden’t yet arrived.

The only downside of visiting in May though, was the bloody cold water temperature. The Adriatic sea doesn’t seem to warm up until deep into the summer, so swimming was not an option. I think next time, September would be an even better time to go, because the sea is warmer, the weather is still balmy, and the tourists have mostly departed.

On this short visit, I managed to see a lovely island off the coast near Split (Brac), some pretty coastal villages, and a stunning national park.

Below are some of my visual impressions of the trip.
I hope you enjoy them!

Cheers for now,
Andrew
