Safe to say that it’s one of the most undervalued capital cities of Europe, and that’s a real shame. Hundreds of sites, super pet friendly, Smart car police vehicles, bike paths, affordable and amazing food!

Hmm  … I’m not sure how it happened, but I forgot to write about Vis in my round-up of the Dalmatian islands. And that’s a terrible thing, Dear Reader, because Vis is unique. It’s completely different from the other islands we visited. It was also a really fun stop. How did I forget to share that experience?! Well, never mind that. I am fixing that oversight right now. What makes Vis […]

Šibenik. Oh how we wish we had spent more time there. It really deserved more than our mad dash through the rain. Alas, all we had were 3-4 hours and lots and lots of rain. Still, Dear Reader, I will share with you what we did manage to see. Because Šibenik left a mark on us; that town has something about it. We found parking right on the […]

After an exhilarating seaplane ride from Split, we landed in Pula. Our plane bump-bump-bumped onto the water and like a huge dragonfly, slipped along the water to drop us off at the converted shipping container that acts as one of the airline’s passenger stops. I have no idea how humans know we’ve changed regions or countries — What are those imaginary lines they like to draw all over […]

The great thing about Split is that there are also many towns right next to it to see, as well as the fabulous old city of Split proper. You can hop on a bus — easily found on the promenade where the cruise ships dock — and within a half hour or so, you can be somewhere else. Somewhere possibly a little quieter and a little smaller. Somewhere […]

Right from the start, when we were planning our trip to Croatia, I knew I wanted to stop in Korčula. It may seem cheesy or cliché but it was all because of the gorgeous photo on the cover of the Eyewitness Travel Guide. We were hooked. And when we dug a little deeper and found out it was the birth place of one of the most famous world travellers—Marco Polo—well, […]

Our experience flying Croatia Airlines with an in-cabin pet was very positive. Although still a small fleet by international standards, Croatia Airlines exceeded our expectations from the customer service to the actual airplanes. But I shouldn’t be surprised since we have had good luck with the Star Alliance group and Croatia Airlines joined the group in 2004. When we were booking our flight, our fantastic travel agent, Danielle, […]

I broke up my review on sailing to Mjlet Island with a small dog into two parts because I wanted to give the island all the attention it deserved. Last week I told you a bit about the National Park, the eco history, and the town of Polace where we docked at the marina. A broad brush stroke if you will. Today I want to focus more on two spots […]

As a travel blogger, when a place is magical and takes your breath away, you get a little frightened about writing a post about it. You have this pit in your stomach that says, “You will not do it justice. You will not find the words. You’ll fail this place.” And then you wipe your paws in the dirt and go ahead anyway; because we are passionate about […]

A very quiet and pet-friendly stop with a wonderful and safe marina for the night. A tiny stop offering up a GREAT pet-friendly restaurant, as well as a lovely wine tasting stop, fabulous hikes, ruins, and amazing sunsets.
