Once a part of the former Yugoslavia, Croatia is indeed the jewel of the Adriatic. A walled city that is surrounded by crystal clear ice blue sea water, this short stop beckons us to consider when we will return to Croatia. The city walls surround and protect a stunning ancient town. Doug and I climbed the wall and walked the perimeter. Stunning view after stunning view met us around every turn and our camera clicked away as we tried to capture the beauty of this hidden treasure. Croatia used to be a popular seaside destination for Europeans until the war ripped it apart. Now enjoying a season of renewal, it has fast reclaimed its favor among the traveling set. I'm guessing that within a year we'll be chatting about our week long stay in Croatia. It's just too beautiful to leave alone.
