This was by far the question most asked when I began sharing my travel plans.
Why Croatia, indeed?
Before I embarked on my amazing journey, the most obvious, the easiest answer was that my sister owns a house there. The next was that I had always wanted to travel, to see Europe, to visit some of the places and spaces I had only read and dreamed about previously.
Once I actually got to Croatia, I had an entirely different answer.
Because I have fallen in love with it! The quaint cobblestone streets. The medieval castles on top of pointed kaleidoscope-coloured hills. The markets. The resilient and engaging people. The rich Roman and pre-Roman history. The music.
Now, I dream of going back to see what I already love, and discover what I haven't yet explored.
