A Weekend in Split

Diocletian palace

We drove to Split, in Southern Croatia, with Klaudija and Ante, friends who acted as our awesome tour guides (thanks dudes!).  What a beauty place!  Centered around the 4th century Diocletian Palace and right on the Adriatic riviera, Split has culture, beaches, beautiful weather and hundreds of people-watching cafes from which to drink delicious lattes.  We were happy there.

Below is our trip in pictures.

2 Days in Zagreb

Zagreb8

For some reason, I rarely talk about the city of Zagreb on Superfora.  Yet, it is where most of my immediate family lives (3 brothers + dad).  It’s where I’ve spent many Summers and Christmases and therefore where a lot of my memories originate.

Plus, it’s lively and beautiful (my poor photo-retouching skills aside).

Dustinland’s Croatian Vacation

While my co-blogger is living it up in Paris this week (according to her Facebook status we’ll have to drag her back to Vancouver kicking and screaming) I’m left with merely daydreams about a European vacation. Due to familial ties, my Euro trips consist mostly of visiting family and friends in Croatia and I feel pretty fortunate that the place I’m obligated to visit is so damn beautiful. Since I’m admittedly biased, it’s always nice to hear an outsider’s perspective on how awesome Croatia truly is.

Today that outsider is Dustin Glick, who pretty much summed the place up with this comic strip. Note that he didn’t go in the summertime, otherwise the strip would have been packed with images of beaches, jet-setters and nude Czech toursits.
