A visit to Croatia, Bosnia, and Slovenia was one of my favorite trips ever. Montenegro and Albania, I'm looking at you. Until I go back, I'll be keeping track of the beautiful views and delicious food that other AFAR travelers are posting about.
We laid down our beach towels on the rocks, where the edge of the island met the soft lapping waves. Several peacocks watched us from a close distance, their eyes gleaming with hunger and curiosity.

So this was the wonder to found on Lokrum Island: mischievous peacocks, a soothing melody from the waves, and tranquil isolation.
