I’m not sure what it is at the moment, but the destination on everybody’s lips seems to be Croatia? Or maybe it’s just me?
Anyhow, my trip to Croatia couldn’t have come at a better time.
Two weeks ago I got the chance to go and explore what all the fuss was about.
Aside from a quick stop off at Dubrovnik when I danced on a cruise about 5 years ago, this was my first time in Croatia.
It was a press trip to The Yacht Week that had bought me out here, but I decided to come out a bit earlier to extend my exploring.
If you’re like me, you love discovering new places and are keen for a more active ‘on the go’ holiday, then there is only one answer for it, and you are in the right place…
Let me inspire you…
For my adventure, I simply hired a car from Avax in Split for a 1-day road trip. It cost $76 for the day including $13 for a portable wifi unit (google maps), which is pretty cheap, particularly when you split (Split get it, haha, okay I’ll shhh) it with your friends.
After road tripping’ for just a day, I realized how AWESOME it would be to have a road trip holiday here in Croatia.
I’ll show you what we managed to fit into our 1-day road trip, and then later in the post, I’ll give you some extensions if you fancy making a holiday out of it (which I fully intend to come back and do).
