Next up, Montenegro. We went to Kotor, a gorgeous walled-off little town. But wow, was it packed with tourists. This was the only time I felt overwhelmed by the crowds (I'm sure it did not help that the cruise ship port was just outside the walls of Kotor). It was nice nonetheless, especially walking the medieval walls and checking out the views from the top
In my previous post, I talked a little bit about beating the crowds. I said it once and I'll say it again, I am so glad we went to this part of Europe in April. Croatia is growing in popularity (especially because of the show Game of Thrones). We took advantage of the low crowds every time we could. Unfortunately, not in Kotor... We enjoyed it, nonetheless
Day tripping to Croatia's most beloved National Park: Plitvice.
Jelacic Square - The Times Square of Zagreb
This little street (Tkalciceva) is such a gem... Full of restaurants and coffee shops. Very lively, great for people watching
More walking, Strossmayer Promenade
St Mark's Square up ahead, beauty at every turn
That concludes our little time in the Balkans. Needless to say, I want to go back and explore so much more. We totally lucked out on some great tickets that, I'm almost certain, will not be coming around anytime soon. However, I will keep looking because, this little area of our beautiful planet deserves to be explored some more...
I hope you like the pictures. More adventures are in the works for us here in La Casa de Sand so, come back soon!
