An Evening in Zagreb, Croatia

Greetings,

I’m writing this from my hotel room in Zagreb, Croatia. It was a long trip from Miami that went by surprisingly fast and as always, totally worth it. The moment I landed in Europe, a feeling of euphoria took over and it felt so good to be back on this continent. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, there is nowhere in the world like Europe for the summer. I arrived in Zagreb at about 3:30PM and an hour later was out and about exploring this capital city with the group…

We went for quick tour of the town where we visited the cathedral and learnt more about neck ties aka cravats which were invented here; afterwards we went for dinner at Pod Grickim Topom. We had an incredible appetizer platter filled with delicious delectable treats before my main arrived which was rosemary sea bass with asparagus; divine. I did my best to control myself and not eat too much cheese; easier said than done, yes?

Following that, we rolled into the Museum of Broken Relationships and it really moved me. The stories were authentic and for better or worse, I could relate to a few of them. Basically it was artifacts left behind which had a story of a broken relationship; powerful stuff. There was one photo about a key that really struck a chord but more on that later, perhaps.

Afterwards, myself and some company went for a night cap while enjoying the surrounding scene. Tomorrow I’m off on another adventure so for now, I’d like to share with you the photos I took today. It feels so good to be back on the road and considering this is my first time in Croatia; that feeling of discovering somewhere new is in the air. There is nothing like it on this planet and I recommend all of you go somewhere new sometime soon as I believe it’s good for the soul.

  1. Really looking forward to hearing about Croatia and seeing more photos. I have good friends from Croatia and have heard about its beauty and good food. Are you going to Split? It seems to be a growing place of interest for tourists. Glad to see you’re back in Europe.

    1. I am going to Split and very excited about it, so far I’m loving my time here. I was last in this part of the world in 2011 and can’t believe it took me this long to return. Much more coming and also glad to be back!

  2. I would love to quit my life and start traveling but im scared and don’t know where to start at..

    1. It is scary and it sounds like you’ve already begun the process; everything starts with desire my friend. It will probably take time but if you want it bad enough, you’ll make it happen.

      Good luck!

  3. I’ve been lucky enough to go to Zagreb several times–twice for extended stays–and I think it’s one of the most livable cities in Europe. It’s very walkable and safe and has more cafes per capita than just about anywhere on earth. And there’s always something going on in the main square.

    1. Luck you indeed!

      Loved the main square and watched the World Cup game there the other night; electric! I also really like it, currently in Zadar and loving it as well. I’m in Europe for 6 months; Croatia is rising fast on the list of places to build a base…
