Croatia, you wild thing

This land has gotten a special place in my heart. 9 years ago when I was at the fresh age of 16, me and some of my girlfriends had our very first ‘grown-up’ trip to Croatia. It was the first time without the parents. 6 girls, all aged 16 to 17. Boy, what an introduction to the freedom of travelling. I love Croatia, and I loved our time we had there. With memories stuck in this nostalgic bubble, I was kind of afraid of meeting Croatia yet again. Would it have changed much? Would it have commercialised completely? Would it have lost it’s charm? yes, yes and no.
Granted, it is far far faaaaar from the counry I had met 9 years ago and it has undergone intense development, but the charm is still there. Staying in Game of Thrones capital probably didn’t help much when it comes to tourism, with flocks everywhere. But my hostel was conveniently located at the quiet BLACKWATER BAY, with stunning views. I’ve still been able to catch some raw beauty here and there.

“The common people pray for rain, healthy children and a summer that never ends. It is no matter to them if the high lords play their game of thrones, so long as they are left in peace.”

  1. Wat een mooie foto’s! Behalve Zagreb heb ik Kroatië nog niet echt ontdekt, ik ben wel heel benieuwd geworden naar de mooie ruige kustlijnen.

  2. Love it, ben er nooit geweest, maar lijkt me prachtig!
