Croatia is one of my new favorite countries. Its capital, Zagreb is a gateway into a country 26full of beautiful scenery, interesting history and kind people. It’s a great mix of old and new, including old peeling walls, beautiful churches and a bustling square.


Art appears everywhere, spilling out into the streets, and great graffiti graces the walls. It’s also a city full of museums. If you’re looking for something a little different, check out the Museum of Broken Relationships, sad, funny and heartening all at once, a glimpse of the human condition that most can relate to.

 

 

  • Art appears everywhere, spilling out into the streets…

  • …as well as lots of green space.
  • It’s easy to get around on the local blue trams…
  • …as well as alternative forms of transportation.

 

 


 

Great restaurants abound in Zagreb. So do places to grab a snack, and there are plenty of shopping opportunities as well as lots of green space. It’s easy to get around on the local blue trams and other forms of transportation.

My friend Beth from Michigan flew into Zagreb to join me for a week of travel in Croatia, and we spent two lovely days here. She said her time in Croatia was one of her best trips ever!

 

So if you’re looking for a destination that’s full of history, charm, art, architecture, good food and good people, with an affordable price tag, consider Croatia. Come on along for the ride, and then book your own ticket.

“You could consider me homeless and unemployed, but I prefer nomad and self-employed, as I pack up my skills and head off with my small backpack and even smaller savings to circumnavigate the globe (or at least go until the money runs out). Get ready to tag along for the ride…starting now!”
