2019 already waved goodbye and with this post we are remembering our adventures of the past year one more time. It was definitely not a boring one in terms of travel – we ended up visiting 18 countries on 3 different continents! Some of them with Lu and some of them just the two of us. Besides these really awesome …

ZADAR, Croatia | European Best Destination 2016

Katja CROATIA 1 Comment

Stopping in ZADAR ON THE WAY HOME was an obvious choice – mostly because our ferry from DUGI OTOK island brought us to Zadar port anyway and also because it´s been ages since I was there. The city was honoured with a great title this year – Europe´s best destination 2016. Another reason we were not about to miss it.

Since we were on holidays on DUGI OTOK Otok this year, we were very much looking forward to visit Kornati islands after a very long time again. And the best way to do it is to book a day boat trip and cruise around the islands. Unless you have your own boat of course ;).

As the island was once a military zone and therefore inaccessible to all foreigners it has retained its CHARM and can truly be called “the Mediterranean as it once was”. We like Vis because of its uncrowded BEACHES, little stone house VILLAGES and …

In 2010 we visited BRELA on our DALMATIAN ROAD TRIP, but only stayed shortly. So when we were deciding on where to go this summer, we remembered the nice beaches around here and thought it would be great for Lu also – and we were off. Brela is surrounded by ADRIATIC SEA on one side and the mighty BIOKOVO MOUNTAINS …
