This entire summer my dad and I have been in contact to figure out a week he could come out and see Prague and then head somewhere in Europe. We looked at all of our options and places we both haven't been, and Croatia was ultimately decided.
He came in Friday the 31st and I showed him what I thought he should see in Prague all day Saturday. From there we left Sunday to Dubrovnik, Croatia.
We landed in Croatia with half a day left to start our week, and oh what a fun filled week it was!
The first night we walked the castle and explored the inside of the castle walls, which have all been turned into shops, restaurants, bars, museums, and housing. All I could imagine was how this place was when it was a kingdom and taking on intruders. It had a full moat and everything a castle would have.
I thought it was really cool that locals kids sat in their windows in the evenings and just watched people dancing in the square and enjoying the liveliness of everything around them.
Dubrovnik to Split
via Bosnia and Herzegovina
We drove just over three hours crossing through Bosnia which was a super scenic route and added a new stamp to the passport. Which is something that never disappoints me as I want my passport filled up as much as possible this summer!
Welcome to Split
I didn't carry my camera around Split much as we were going in and out of the water and it was super touristy. I was warned not to set anything down while swimming or in busy areas as people will grab bags. The last thing I would want to happen this summer is lose my camera! I still have another month in Europe!!
We did a day trip to the Blue Lagoon to snorkel and enjoy the warm water and even warmer weather. The Adriatic Sea was definitely the saltiest water i've swam in but also the bluest and cleanest.
Thank you, Dad, for an amazing week. I know you read these and will enjoy this one. See you in August. Argentina and Croatia in the same year together, great memories for life.
Croatia= favorite place I've been in the world. I definitely recommend adding it in your bucket list, top 5.
Prague rental cars are cheap... so Joe and all the roommates might do a weekend road trip this coming weekend. If that happens, some Switzerland might be in the next post.
