How time flies…our seven weeks in Croatia disappeared in no time. After leaving Montenegro, we headed to Dubrovnik and then slowly worked our way up the coast only disappearing inland to visit two of Croatia’s beautiful national parks and their country’s capital.
Here are some of the highlights of our time in this beautiful country…

Wandering around the old walls of Dubrovnik was a great way to see the cities roof tops and fabulous views
