Spring Break 2006 - The Dalmatian Coast

Zooming through a tunnel in CroatiaWe packed up the old Skoda and headed off on our last family trip from Belgrade in April of 2006. Since Susan and the kids would be staying back in the USA for the upcoming school year, we decided to 'low-key' this vacation and wrap up our stay in the Balkans by enjoying more of the scenery in the general area.

We got to see a bit of everything that makes this region memorable: natural beauty, sky-blue water, ancient ruins, orange tiled roofs surrounded by medieval walls, and even some grim reminders of the turbulent history. As a bookend to our time here, we certainly couldn't have done much better.

Besides, the kids so love to throw rocks in the water!!!

Travel along with us to

  • Karlovac - home of good tasting beer on a sunny Sunday
  • Jezera Plitvice - gorgeous waterfalls set in a stunning canyon
  • Trogir - our 'base' for most of the trip, so much to see that there is a second page as well
  • Solin - ruins of a Roman crossroads town
  • Split - famed as a Caesar's retirement palace, now a bustling, modern city
