The coast of Croatia

After Germany, mom and I flew to Split, Croatia.  This was the start of the “warm” leg of our journey; the part where it was just us two with few plans outside of relaxing on beaches and admiring coastal views.  Croatia had been my idea.  I had first seen pictures of the country a few years ago on a travel blog and fell in love with the bright blue waters and old-style architecture.

We started our time in Croatia with the city of Split.  We stayed in a cute apartment off of the main strip and spent most days dining on seafood, walking around the city and admiring the coast.  There were the old palace walls to sweat our way through, a fruit market where we found fresh berries, and the best lemon cake hiding in a back-alley bakery.  We managed to eat four meals at the same seaside restaurant, thanks to their delicious brunch menu!  And on our third day we decided to walk along the coast in search of some beaches.  While sandy in spots, most of the walk was on paved terrain and most of it was spent hiding from the intermittent rain clouds.  But we did finally make it to the Radisson Blue, our goal destination, where we feasted on delicious fish, pasta and dessert!
