21483, Podhumlje, Croatia
If you are able to tour the Pakleni Islands near Hvar in Croatia ask to be taken to Bisevo to see the blue grotto. Once you are there you will be taken in a small embarkation as the entrance to the cave is only 1.5 meters high. Once you enter your...

Dubrovnik, Croatia
Dubrovnik is one of the best preserved medieval, walled cities in the world. Inside the city are delightful narrow streets, churches, synagogues, and squares. However, the best way to appreciate Dubrovnik is atop its walls. The citizens relied on...
Save Place
Up a flight of stairs in a narrow alley off of the main square in Hvar Town, a tongue-in-cheek sign outside the restaurant Luna warns “for Lunatics only.” After entering and ascending a flight of stairs adorned with multi-lingual proclamations...

Crijevićeva ul. 9, 20000, Dubrovnik, Croatia
Climb the grand baroque staircase and pass the Jesuit church, cross Gundulić Square, and follow the COLD DRINKS WITH THE MOST BEAUTIFUL VIEW signs. Then, yes, walk through the walls. Buža translates to “a hole-in-the-wall,” and a...

Dubrovnik, Croatia
A rainy morning did not dampen the view of Old Dubrovnik, Croatia, as I traveled to the mountainside town of Polijica. Although many of the city's buildings are centuries old, the bright orange roofs were replaced following the Croatian War of...

Put Zlatnog rata, 21420, Bol, Croatia
Zlatni Rat beach, our Croatian friend told us, is one of the most photographed beaches in Croatia. It took no more time than our arrival there to convince me. "Zlatni Rat" means "the Golden Cape," and the beach is made up of shining white pebbles...

Ul. od Puča 1, 20000, Dubrovnik, Croatia
Dubrovnik has no shortage of stellar views, but if you are looking for one that's off the tourist path then go north of the Old City into the residential pedestrian walkways. On Gornji Kono you'll find a paved area with park benches set up to...

True, the ground may be a bit uneven, the sun may be shining brightly upon you and you just may have to endure friendly boaters waiving as they sail by, BUT it's a small price to pay for the experience and breathtaking view of practicing on the...

Ul. Iza Vestibula 4, 21000, Split, Croatia
When we arrived in Croatia, we were surprised to learn that the Zinfandel grape's ancestral origins are in Dalmatia. Eager to taste wine, and try authentic cuisine in the Split area, we embarked on a fantastic and private day trip. As a...

Dubrovnik, Croatia
The drive from Split to Dubrovnik along the Southern Dalmatian coast is breathtaking. It is not a long drive and is supposed to take only four hours to complete, but stunning views across the Adriatic seduced us into stopping our car every 10...

Croatia
If going to Croatia you must check out Plitvice Lakes - a world heritage park of impossibly-coloured lakes criss-crossed by wooden boardwalks. Fed by hundreds of falls and scattered with autumn leaves, the lakes presented a surreal Monet-esque...

Dubrovnik, Croatia
For the millions of us who love the Game of Thrones series on HBO, you are in for a treat when you visit Dubrovnik. Many of the scenes featuring the fictional city of King’s Landing were filmed in and around Dubrovnik, thanks to its position on...

Palmotićeva ul. 4a, 20000, Dubrovnik, Croatia
Wine is an integral part of life on the Dalmatian Coast, a region with many indigenous varietals; a visit to Dubrovnik shouldn’t go by without a glass of local wine. Tucked away on Palmotićeva Street off the main Stradun, D’Vino offers...

PORAT 00, Biševo, 21485, Biševo, Croatia
When sailing from the town of Vis to Komiža on Vis Island, we stopped at the Blue Cave (Modra špilja) on the nearby island of Biševo. Visitors can enter the cave entrance for a minor fee and only by small boat. As we made our way inside, the water...

Stari most, Mostar 88000, Bosnia and Herzegovina
We spent a day in Bosnia, it's an easy drive from Dubrovnik. The transition was dramatic: from the Latin alphabet to the Cyrillic; from lazy tourists driving Fiats to vigilant UN peacekeepers driving tanks. This bridge was destroyed in 1993 during...

Mostar 88000, Bosnia and Herzegovina
“Oh my god, he’s going to do it!” screeched the American teenager to my left. Sure enough with a quick wave to the crowd, a furtive glance downwards and a tuck of the pants, over he leapt. One of Mostar’s bridge-jumpers had just taken the plunge...

Mostar 88000, Bosnia and Herzegovina
While Mostar itself is a relatively small town it is one of the most visited in the Balkans. Known for its alley of coppersmiths, where the sons and daughters of coppersmiths before them have toiled, the ‘clang clang clang’ nearly drowns out the...

Kujundžiluk, Mostar 88000, Bosnia and Herzegovina
A cafe turned into a bar-cum-cafe. Great place to lounge about and people watch!

Mostar 88000, Bosnia and Herzegovina
While there are an abundance of restaurants along the Neretva river in Mostar, one superb choice is Urban Grill. Here you can try the traditional ćevapi (a dish of minced meat, similar to sausages) in somun (or flatbread), which is considered a...
