Best Beach Spots in Korcula

The island of Korcula is filled the brim with beach spots. Some are well known and have beach rentals and food spots nearby. But there are also many secluded areas to stop off and have a swim in the crystal blue waters. It's the way an island should be.

Croatian Hospitality & Our Croatian Air BnB Experience

Something I didn't expect to experience in Croatia was the incredible hospitality shown to us from most every Croatian we met. Not knowing too much about the history of the country probably made this a little more enhanced for me but I was in total awe of just how genuinely friendly every one was. I also was pleasantly surprised by the excellent English spoken at the three areas we visited. I have to admit, I have become extremely language lazy. On trips to our last few countries I have not even glanced at common words and phrases. #travelfail.

The Dreamy Island of Korčula

Cobblestone streets, crystal blue waters, gorgeous boats, yummy food, romantic coves, rolling vineyards and WINE!! I mean what more can you ask for from a Croatian island? Korčula, you really did a number on us. Oh wow. Where do I even begin?

Beaches of Dubrovnik


I honestly didn't know what to expect from Dubrovnik beaches. We had major beach plans for later in our Croatia itinerary so I wasn't really expecting to spend too much time on the beach here. But wow, did I have it wrong! Today I'm bringing you some of my favorite beach scenes from Dubrovnik and a couple more beaches that I am adding to my list for our next visit! 

Dubrovnik | "Disneyland for Adults"


You can thank my husband for that little title blurb there! But seriously Dubrovnik, thank you for the perfect welcome to your beautiful country of Croatia!

Prepare yourself for many many stair photos. Well...many photos in general. I can't help myself. 

Our Last Big Adventure

So I guess I should just go ahead and say it....my lack of blogging has been completely due to my 'being in denial' about moving back to the States. I have been moping and procrastinating and moping some more. But after returning from Croatia, I feel ready to take on the remaining tasks to get us up and moving back to the States. So yay for determination! And I also am changing the blog around a bit. A new name will be coming shortly as well as we will no longer be abroad soon enough (for the time being). But let's not talk moving just yet....k?

So Croatia. What can I say? Our week in Croatia was literally the best week of my life. It was a stunning country and my favorite travel partner and I had an absolute blast! Before this trip, I thought Greece would always stand out as my favorite but Croatia rocked our socks off and is now miles above all of the rest (sorry Greece).
