“Dad, where the heck is Croatia, why the heck is Croatia so popular, and what the heck makes people want to go there???”
“Well Alexander, I think you’ll find that all out in due course, don’t you think?”
“And what’s that supposed to mean?”
Our family had been excited for Croatia ever since we booked a sailboat trip down the Croatian archipelago. We also knew that we were to go to two popular cities, Split and Dubrovnik. We even got to spend our eight days with some family friends who have been living in Spain for the last year– Lynn and Bill Carr– and their two kids, Evan and Maddox, aged 10 and 8 respectively.
I was excited to travel with another family on a sailboat, but we were also going to two obscure-ish Croatian cities which I didn’t know anything about. Now was a time for desperate measures. Now was the time to use my ‘secret’ weapon. Now was the time to use TripAdvisor!!
What was I to find???
