This is more a post for family and friends, as not everyone I know is on social media. Me, Mrs James and the James daughters had a lovely ten days in Croatia, the nearest country with guaranteed weather which we could reach without having to get on a plane.
We made sure our trusty 18-year-old Voyager had been serviced before we set off. The photos below are a small selection of those I took, and if you’re thinking of a holiday in Croatia, the only thing you really need to know is that it ain’t cheap. As long as you bear that in mind, you’ll have a great time. The beaches vary from stony to sandy, but the weather is ideal, something the Baltic Sea can’t really offer.
We stayed at the Apartments Mirlea, where the hosts were terrific and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend their place. Based in the village of Zaton, the images below include Roman ruins in the nearest larger town, Zadar, and the waterfalls come from two stunning national parks we visited: the Plitvicka Jezera park, a system of 18 lakes with waterfalls falling from one to the other, and the Krka park.
I hope you all managed to get a break this summer too. As I post this, the rest of the James family are still on vacation, while muggins here has to go back to work tomorrow 🙂
