Croatia is one of those countries that holds a very special spot in my heart. It’s the place where I opened my mind to others and was enlightened; was witness to the kindness of strangers; met one of the most remarkable women in the world; and was where I learned about love, life and loss when my grandmother passed away.

It is also home to the Adriatic Sea. This crystal, clear sea and I have spent many, many weeks together. I’ve relaxed on warm rocks along the coast. Bopped along on a little boat through the flat surface. I’ve even gone skinny dipping in the inky black waters at night. The sea, to me, is one of the most gorgeous I’ve ever had the opportunity to dip my toes in, and one I dream of returning to regularly.

When my grandmother died, I took a stone from the sea to bring back to America and place at her grave, that’s how special this country is to me.

This photo is along the shore of Solta, a tiny technicolor island that is largely untouched by tourists.

  1. Nice story and a photo. I was always wondering what do tourist see in Solta? I have an old house in Solta where I go for one week during summer, there is crystal clean sea and unspoiled nature, but there is almost nothing to do there πŸ˜‰

    1. Alen, I stayed on the other side of the island from where the ferry docks. There isn’t much to do there but relax. Where I was had no internet. We boated, swam, drank wine on our patio overlooking the sea, and spent time at the gorgeous restaurants along the little dock. It was heaven!!
