Croatia is a land of beautiful beaches, well preserved historical sites, and delicious fried calamari.
In today’s episode Heather and I take a look back at our 3 weeks in Eastern Europe, most notably, the time we spent on the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia from Split to Dubrovnik.
From walking the walls of a historical city to exploring abandoned resorts and delicious mini pizzas to giant meat platters, this episode is a great overview of the sights and tastes of Croatia.
We’ll share some of the best places we stayed, ate, and adventured, and make you long for the clear waters and brilliant views that make up the Dalmatian Coast.
