TRAVELS: Plitvice National Park of Croatia

Croatia has really hit it off with the tourism industry over the past few years, with people now visiting Dubrovnik and Split by the thousand. We actually saw neither though - ha, but we were privileged enough to spend eight whole days in this absolutely gorgeous country, beginning in Zagreb, then a night in the literal middle of nowhere to see Plitvice lakes and several nights in Zadar, from where we also day tripped to Krka National Park and Dugi Otok island. I barely took any photos in the whole country, because (ultimate cheese, I know) I was so busy actually enjoying the natural beauty of it so this will be the only blog post! You've probably seen photos of Plitvice popping up on social media and even though I'd seen hundreds of pinterest pics beforehand literally nothing prepared me for the first glance I got over the mountainside across a valley of turquoise waters and waterfalls! We couldn't find a room big enough for seven anywhere so we booked a three and a two in separate groups and arrived to discover our BnBs were literally right next door to each other in Plitvicka Jezera, a teeny tiny hamlet that was so much in-the-middle-of-nowhere that we could see the Milky Way when we were out stargazing that night!

  1. Wow! Just breath taking! I hope to go someday :)

    Luke and his mates did similar when they went in the Spring; driving from Zadar to Zagreb. (Pula, Valbandon beach, Zadar, Krka National Park- unfortunately not warm enough for them to swim when they were there-, Plitvice National Park, and Zagreb.)
