    0

Getting into the EU (aka. wrong) customs line. Being...

Split & Plitvice Lakes

Split, Croatia It is difficult to put into words these first two weeks.  Split is beautiful and amazing, nestled between the mountains and the crystal clear waters of the Adriatic Sea, with the old town tucked inside a castle and gorgeous weather encouraging play and exploration.  The old town is made up of a maze of narrow cobblestone passageways providing an opportunity to wander, explore and...
