There were some really nice bits as well! I got to enjoy fresh seafood, read a really good book, drink cheap white wine, swim in the clear blue sea and look at a lot of boats.
When my long planned holiday fell through, I had to look for alternatives on a short notice. Well, I didn’t have to but I was determined that I would go away. My criteria for that plan B holiday were:
- a country that I have never been to
- it needs to have beaches
- it needs to have some opportunities for a few cultural day trips
- not too expensive
- not too far away
- flights fitting in with my schedule
All these criteria were met by Croatia! And everybody says that it’s beautiful. So I booked my flights and flew the next day. Turns out, I hadn’t even considered that it would be high season and that it’s a very popular holiday destination for obnoxious families with annoying children. Who would have thought?
Here are some photos I took when I arrived at Okrug Beach, “Trogir’s Copacabana”.
After my flight to Israel was cancelled for security reasons, I wanted to find a different holiday destination. I wasn’t going to let my summer holiday be taken away from me by a war! So I decided to go somewhere new, a country that I had never been to before. I found a flight to Split in Croatia and a hotel in Trogir. I’m staying here for five nights.
And it rained and rained but I decided that the colourful umbrellas actually made my photos looks more interesting.
I saw the cathedral which was small and full of obnoxious tourists who completely ignored the “no photography” signs. One even pushed me out of the way to get a better photo angle. What is wrong with these people?
I left the Diocletian’s Palace area and luckily the number of obnoxious tourists declined.
When I arrived I practically ran to the beach and jumped into the sea.
