Photography Friday: C is for ‘Croatia’

Flag of Croatia

Sun, blue skies, pebbles, clear waters, what more could a traveller want?
(Okay, maybe sand instead of pebbles and some fish n’ chips)

This week’s ‘Photography Friday’ takes us back to Europe and crosses over two different locations, four years apart! Going with the theme of crossing off the entire alphabet, this week we have C for Croatia. Croatia is a country that is lovely and warm, just what I need leading into the summer!

Without further ado…

Pula, Croatia

Near the Croatia-Slovenia border, back in 2008 I visited Pula. Pula is a lovely coastal town filled with Roman ruins, a lovely seafront and plenty of opportunities to take a boat around the Brijuni islands.

Dubrovnik, Croatia

2012 brought Dubrovnik, during the same trip when I visited Bosnia and Herzegovina. Dubrovnik is a clean pretty little old town, filled with tourists and very average food. However, the city wall was great to walk along and there was some lovely scenic parts to the city – I love the flowers and the shutters on the windows (as you’ll be able to tell from below).

Croatia is a lovely spot to visit, I’ll always remember its warm weather and beautiful waters. I may not go for the food, like I would in Bosnia, Italy or Spain, but the scenery and beaches in Croatia are stunning.

Part of me wishes that I could get to the Plitvice Lakes this year, but I’m not sure if that will happen… may be another one to add to the bucket list!
