Your teaser photos have certainly piqued my curiosity about what else you saw. I had no idea that was was Croatia's official name. It's a beautiful country, isn't it. Did you find it not as touristy as other nearby areas of Europe?

Michele, It is a beautiful country, however there were plenty of tourists already. I would say all the big sites are definitely on the tourist trail. Especially Split and Dubrovnik were overrun. We still enjoyed them, but the lesser known places were very quiet and it was great to explore them.

From reading other blogs, I've seen how stunningly beautiful Croatia is but I didn't notice until now how diverse it is too. I'd love to visit.

Hi Corrine. I haven't been to this part of Europe. You photos make me want to change that. I agree, Croatia does indeed look stunning.

Absolutely stunning. Love the shot of the lone boat, and of course, the red poppies against the blue sea.
