TRAVEL TALK: Hello from Croatia

Hello all

I will answer all your lovely comments (and visit blog) when I am back home! Thanks for all of them!

Romy, please tell the RWSA ladies I send love and left my address list at home so can´t send postcards.

sorry for any errors writing this on a Croatian keyboard and not doing a very good job.

having a wonderful adventure. Drove a left hand drive for the first time in my life (scary) drove through a snow storm for the first time ever (more scary) but Croatia is a marvellous country. The character of the people reminds me a lot of South Africans when we just came outr of apartheid, but I will discuss that in more detail on my return. Zadar is quite easily one of the most beautiful spiritual places I´ve been in. Currently in Split which is very busy as there is a national boat show on. Stopped and viewed a deep jade lake and watched an oarsman work his way towards a lovely village on the lake shores, red roofs and white stone walls dotted the slope in amongst purple flowering rosemary bushes. My husband is in photographers heaven.

Time for bed and a good night from me. Next stop Dubrovnik on Monday. Hope the sun has come out by then!
Cheers from me and happy blogging everyone!

Oh, wow. I've always wanted to go to Dubrovnik... The pre-war pictures I've seen were stunning. I hope they've been able to rebuild a bit but, regardless, I'm sure the natural beauty will be amazing. Looking forward to hearing further details. Glad you're enjoying your trip!!

Took a drive on the left side, eh? It gets easier over time.

MARILYN - Dubrovnik was AMAZING! (but Zadar was my favourite) Will talk about the war in my travel post which will be upin a day or two

NANCY - I thought of you so much when we were in Croatia and wondered where your relatives live. You really need to visit them, Croatia is a great country!

LADY GLAMIS - I see you've been busy on your blog. Hope the writing's going well and you're not to pressured by all your blogging! Hope to get a picture or two up on the blog. The difficulty willbe choosing which ones!

ANNIE - hope all well with you and your writing going well!

JUSTUS - HAHAHA! Left hand driving actually DID get easier; luckily my husband navigated otherwise we would've ended up in Texas (I have no sense off direction!)

ANITA - hope to get back to some blogging soon, and then back to full blogging speed later. Will see you around the 'sphere!
