Tripping to Croatia This Week

I’ve been planning this trip with my friend Elaine for much of this year, and we’re both practically giddy about it. I think this is Elaine’s first, or nearly first, international trip. We had talked about Istanbul, but decided that the demonstrations, and police overkill,¬† that were going on a few months ago wasn’t worth working around, considering how expensive it is for last-minute ticket changes (although natives assured me that it was perfectly safe, away from Taksim Square).

It's a message!  Go to Croatia!

It’s a message! Go to Croatia!

Why Croatia? I think it’s meant to be. I have been subscribing to National Geographic Traveler since it first came out in 1984, long before I had the means to travel. The most recent issue featured a story on Zagreb, the capital of Croatia. One of the travel blogs I subscribe to Adventurous Kate’s Solo Female Travel Blog, has featured several articles about things to do and see in this beautiful place. My trip in July included a day at Kotor, Montenegro (which I haven’t written about yet – so hard to cull the pictures!), which has similar culture to Croatia. Elaine also had been reading about Croatia, and wanted to see it. Coincidence? I think not.

And this is truffle season in Croatia. I mean, what more could you want?
