We heard time and time again from people how expensive Croatia is, when we told them we were heading to Croatia. We prefer to avoid marinas and tourist hot spots, so this hasn't been true for us. We're on a boat to find the places people on land can't get to (or not easily), so Croatia has been perfect for us. There are an amazing number of beautiful anchorages to choose from and only a handful you need to pay for. The staff are helpful, and will always offer an alternative bay that is free.
So to summerise our experience...
We've fallen in love with the clear, blue water..
..the stone buildings with terracotta roofs...
... the church spires...
..the football graffiti (the Split football supporters club was founded on 28 October 1950 and their graffiti is everywhere!)...
.. the sunsets...
A fantastic time. All the better for having visitors to share it with. Thanks Croatia.
We're an ordinary family of 5 dreaming, planning and now beginning our adventure around the Mediterranean (and further afield), having an awesome time! Look out for our boat and come and say hi.
