Mljet, Croatia

Some photos from my week long trip to the beautiful island of Mljet in Croatia. With only around 1000 people living here and surrounded by mostly protected national park this is the most peaceful and unspoilt part of Croatia I’ve visited.

One day in Split

On our final full day we took the catamaran out to Split where we dropped our bags at the apartment and quickly went to the beach to soak up the last rays of sunshine.

We spent the afternoon exploring and had a coffee … Continue reading Dubrovnik
