Dubrovnik to Budva Montenegro: I caught the bus from Dubrovnik to the border town of Hercei Novi in Montenegro. The man who had ran the private accomadation I was staying in had recommended to try that instead of taking the Croatian direct bus.

Dubrovnik!

Dubrovnik: Dubrovnik is a city which is literally from the 8th centruy. With Giant reinforced battlements and reinforced crenallations and fortifications the old city of Dubrovnik is spectacular to say the least. At every turn and every view inside the city there is a feeling of living in a medieval fortress. The great stone walls surround a city chock full of churches, shops, and most…

Split: Split is a city with strong reminiscence of R.A. Salvatore’s books. Ancient old city, formed around a port with roman ruins, beautiful bell tower and gorgeous worn marble streets. Split is a city where you can stay for a week, like Dubrovnik its the atmosphere and the sights that really enthrall you. From the park on one edge of the city to the night…

Plitviće Jazeera: Plitvice national park is an example of the unbelivable beauty found in Croatia. Croatia has defied my every expectation. I’ve discovered parks, beautiful coasts, friendly people full of smiles and friendly advice, and a culture dedicated to their traditions and life. Plitvice itself is a national park built around a series of lakes which overflow from each other and create a dazzeling series…

We walked through the city and then proceeded down to the waterside. we found a bench beside the water and to the right of part of the port and sat down for some drinks and food. feeling refreshed we took a…

Rijeka – Pt. 2 Baska. We woke and walked Rijeka early Sunday morning, the square was quieter and although I’d been frustrated with a serious lack of working internet I was excited to be out and traveling with the parents. We’d decided the night before to explore Baska and make our way down to the southern tip of the Island of KrK. We caught our…
