The highlights of Croatia

Now that summer is right around the corner–I went without a jacket for the first time in New York City yesterday!–I can’t help but think about my favorite summer destinations.

Postcard from Dubrovnik

The New York Times recently posted The 46 Places to Go in 2013: the ultimate guide to this year’s wanderlust.

Postcard from Split

As a popular starting or ending point for many Croatian sailing trips and a major transport hub in Dalmatia, Split is tough to miss on most tourists’ itineraries, even if it’s just for one night. Even just as a “layover city,” Split is a wonderful introduction to Dalmatia: red roofs, blue sea, beaches close enough to […]

The coolest places to stay in Croatia

In Croatia, I spent most of my nights on a boat. The few that I spent on land, however, impressed me. I spent time in Zagreb, Split and Dubrovnik: the main tourist destinations in Croatia. The hostels and guesthouse I stayed in were clean, modern, reasonably priced and offered free, fast Wifi: highly recommend all […]
