Europe » Croatia » Dalmatia » Dubrovnik July 20th 2013

The last night in Dubrovnik was nice! We walked the walls. even though I have done it 6 times now, there is still something about being up there That makes it worthwhile. Our pace made it quite a workout though. After the walls, we ate at Komarda. Dad had really good fish. We finished the night with some time on the Stradun. The following morning, Judy, Sue and I took a taxi to the airport to get the cars. Picking up the rest of the crew just up from Pile Gate was a challenge though. We eventually made it with Judy having to take another lap around the city due to all of the honking that was going on. Our trip to Sarajevo wthe long with stops in Metkovič at a grocery store & Medugorje. Dad ... read more

Europe » Croatia » Dalmatia » Dubrovnik July 19th 2013

Day 3 started with breakfast near Pile Gate. We met with Marija Vukas and caught up on the last Few years. From there, it was sea kayaking. Abbey and I partnered up, Ayden and Conner were a duo and the last (and quite inexperienced) group was Brock and Maty. We went along the walls of the entire Old Town and then out to Lokrum. Our kayak and Conner's touched Lokrum so we could say we had been there. Kayak #3 was afraid they were going to overturn along the rock endes of the island. After the kayaking, we hit Banje again. It was really sunny. After some swimming, Abbey and Maty went parasailing. The look on Maty's face, you bacon see how much she was looking forward to it. Off to eat our last supper in ... read more

Great day in Dubrovnik! Had breakfast at the Dubravka and the headed to Banje. Perfect weather for the beach. Had lunch at the East West Club. After spending the day at Banje, we got cleaned up and went to Mea Culpa for supper. Had a great pizza supper there. That was followed by a trip up to the top of Srd. We didn't make it there last night. Carrie and dad stayed behind to wait for our return. All for now.... read more

Europe » Croatia » Dalmatia » Dubrovnik July 17th 2013

It was a long day, but we finally made it! I have a hard time believing that we are back here again. The only sleep that I got was on the Frankfurt to Dubrovnik flight. Maty slept more than she would have at home I think. Everyone is doing well. We got to Dubrovnik and went into the old town to shop a bit. We also went to a small rock beach north of Lovrijenac. Good enough to take a quick swim and go back to our apartments. Off to eat in the old town. Hoping to try something new, or newer! Dad is doing well. He started to cramp up a bit. He believes Coke is like Gatorade I think. We are then off to Mt. Srd. Allegedly it is really petty when the lights ... read more

Europe » Croatia » Central Croatia » Zagreb August 5th 2009

We left Optija after talking a bit with Davor...and stopped for lunch in Karlovac. We ate at McDonald's and then met Domagoj at the toll area in Zagreb so he could take us to the hotel. We checked in and then went down to Jelacic Square to do some shopping. We also met Domagoj, Martina, Lea and Luka. Domagoj called Drazen Petrovic's mom to see if we could get into his museum since it is closed for the summer and she arranged someone to meet us there. We got a tour of the museum, which was amazing, and we bought a few things from it. It is an amazing place... We then went to eat...we tried to get into Boban's but they didn't have room for 10 of us, so we went to the restaurant at ... read more

Europe » Croatia » Istria » Opatija August 5th 2009

We passed up on the trip to Pula and decided to take the day to go to Baska on the island of Krk instead. We tried to swim on the way to Opatija in the town of Crikvenica, but drove through the whole beach area and could not find a parking spot. Opatija...was as I expected...pretty lame. The first night was HOT. It might have been the hottest night of sleep I have ever had in my life. I am not sure any of us slept...it was literally that hot. We shopped a bit that first night. The next day we drove to Baska to swim and then had supper in the town of Krk. Krk was ok...we then got back to Opatija right before a huge thunderstorm..which was nice because it cooled it off for ... read more

Europe » Croatia » Dalmatia » Split July 31st 2009

We finally got to Split and had a couple of good days. I'll let the pictures do the talking. The highlight was taking a trip up the bell tower with the kids and also getting a picture taken with Toni Kukoc again. I can't believe we ran into him and his kids again. Bacvisce beach was very clean compared to when we were there in 1996. We decided to skip the trip to Trogir. Finally got to Brinje today too...good to see the relatives. Ivana is keeping Abbey busy and Ayden has a new friend named Tomo!!!!!... read more
