Sailing Croatia

I don’t think that it is a secret at this point that Croatia is one of our favorite places in the world. Tawny and I found ourselves in Croatia back in 2013 for the first time and we instantly fell in love with it. So much so that often when we have the opportunity to go to Europe we always […]

Summer road tripping in style

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Shell, in which I was compensated. The opinions and text are all mine. How is it already September? It still feels as if summer just arrived and now we can already feel fall nipping at our heels. I can’t believe the season of BBQing, slip and slides, and road […]

Truffle hunting in Istria, Croatia

There’s gold in the woods of Croatia’s Istria province. Hidden below the earth and clinging to the roots of oak trees lie the tasty riches that the region is known for: truffles. Now, truth be told, truffles are essentially just a strong fungus that kind of resembles the clumps I scoop out of my cat’s litter box. Oh, but they […]

Returning to Croatia, our happy place

We love Croatia. There, I said it. I love Croatia more than warm clothes fresh out of the dryer, more than my beloved Anderson Cooper, and dare I say even more than cheese. CHEESE. We have an unabashed obsession with this country. Maybe it’s the stylish people and their dry sense of humor (made even better by those sexy accent, […]

Croatia, how we love thee.

It’s been three days since we left our beloved country of Croatia. It had been thirteen months since our last visit but as soon as we landed we felt as if no time had passed at all. There’s something so special about the country and we still haven’t been able to put our hands on exactly what it is. Maybe […]

Zadar, the Gem of Dalmatia

Zadar rises up out of the sea like the bones of a dragon. Ivory spears of marble pierce the belly of the Adriatic and rush towards the sun. As an island town it was walled against invasion by rock and water. Today the main town, shoves away its landlocked suburbs with Venetian bridges. Holding itself apart and away from the […]

Croatia through food

I honestly believe that one of the best ways to experience the culture of a destination is through its food. This could not have held more true for the country of Croatia. I could literally taste the country’s tumultuous history through the meals that we enjoyed. We found traces of Austria and Hungary with the schnitzel and strudels in Zagreb, […]

The Doors of Croatia

  Tawny and I have only spent four days in Croatia but we are already deeply in love with this gorgeous country. We’ve been having too much fun to write much but we wanted to give you all a taste of what we’ve seen. As travel is a door to the world it seemed only fitting to focus a little […]
