Croatia

Summer is going strong here in Europe and as I am experiencing the fifth sunny day in Scotland in a row (!) I also look forward to our upcoming trip to Croatia. Remember, almost four months ago I told you about the first Travelettes trip with all team members powered by Sailing.hr.

Maybe you remember that Travelettes turned 4 last summer.

What comes to your mind when you think of Croatia?
For the longest time, to me it had been one of those destinations that people talked about as being really pretty and certainly worth a trip.

Croatia often conjures images of beachside parties and holidays along the shore in Split or Dubrovnik. Zagreb, the capital city, isn’t always a tourist’s first destination.
