Traveling Tuesdays ~ Put Croatia on the bucket list

Have you ever wanted to go to Croatia?
I never really had ~ until this opportunity came up to travel with my sister and her friends from the American Women's Club in London.
Croatia is a beautiful country on the Adriatic sea. We spent several days seeing Dubrovnik, Montenegro and the surrounding area.
We even spent one day on a replica of a pirate ship . . . complete with a beautiful woman figurehead. Fitting ~ since it was a boat full of fabulous women ! We spent the day sailing to 3 of the Dalmation Islands off the coast of Dubrovnik. All were amazing . . .
Each island was unique with it's coast lines and ports. The people were so very friendly; Proud of their wines and olive oils.
We ate fresh fish every night that had been swimming in these waters. We tasted a bit of that Croatian wine as well. Of course ~ I could be on a deserted island with my sister and still have fun !

Now, lets see where everyone else is traveling this tuesday !
Y'all enjoy the ride~

I have friends who have a house on an island off the Dalmatian coast (Korcula), and I'm just salivating to visit them there!

My maternal grandmother was from Split and I visited Croatia many years ago, before the war. I would like to go back: I have fond memories of many places and foods. I am glad to read you enjoyed your visit there.

I've always envied your time with Holly. Guess what? My sister is moving to Destin. Fun times ahead.

Hugs,
Kat
