Another summer is gone. It’s end of October and we decided to drive to Croatia for a five days break in the sun. Another five days of summer before winter comes.

Every year it is same. The days get shorter and the nights get colder. The leaves change colour and fall down. The right time to prepare for winter depression or the last change to get away and get some sun.

The good thing about Croatia is that it has it all. A beautiful coast, great national parks and picturesque old towns. And the best thing is that it is just around the corner. For me that means no need to get on a plane. We just packed our suitcases and drove down.

One night in Zadar, three in Podstrana (close to Split) and one night at the Plitvice lakes. It’s my third time in Croatia but I never was there so late in the year. It’s quieter than in June or September and much, much quieter of course than in July and August. I don’t think it makes any sense to go there in summer unless you are 18 years old and want to party hard. For all others I think that September/October is the best time to go…
