Lukomir Village

While planning this year’s summer holiday, we found ourselves staring at a map of Europe, looking for a place that was within driving distance, was near to some beaches (this was a vacation, after all) and had mountains suitable for hiking which were preferably not too crowded. 3,209 more words


The last oak forest of Dalmatia

Winter wanderings - Nunic in Bukovica

Winter is not the best time for exploring and winter walks. The weather has been rainy and fairly cold (folks from Canada, please do not laugh at our cold) but that should not stop anyone from at least a stroll by the sea or an easy hike. 683 more words
