Croatia is awesome! I'm jealous

Have you been to Croatia, Peter? Curious to hear about your highlights then ;).
And planning our trip has kind of turned into a continuous smile.

Yeah, we went there a couple of years ago, just before Miles was born. Highlight without a doubt was Plitvice Lakes. You really *have* to include that on your itinerary. The accommodation is a bit on the package tour side of life (assuming you stay in the hotel right on site), but the scenery is so stunning that it's really worth spending two days looking around.

The drive from Split to Dubrovnik is also high on my list. Both cities are of course amazing as well, but the drive meanders along such beautiful cliffs and through such lovely little towns that it now rates as my number one driving trip (outranking some fairly well regarded ones like Big Sur, Great Ocean Road, etc. ). I think it probably would have warranted driving further up the coast too (north of Split), but we had to push on to Zagreb.

I think it's probably hard to go wrong what you pick to be honest. The islands are also reportedly lovely, even though it's not something we did.

You'll love it.

Cool, thanks for the advice, Peter. Definitely want to head to Plitvice!
Really have to stop planning now, especially considering I should get other stuff done...;)

Croatia.... One of the most beautiful countries in the whole world - along with Montenegro, right next door.
Enjoy.

Over the past few days, receiving a handful of unexpected PMs from members - some I had not "met" until now - and they have all made me smile. ;)

I had to have some x-rays that required a contrast dye to be injected - no big deal. But, the last time I had this done, the dye made me violently ill. Because of this, they had to consult (several times) with the radiologist, got an emergency nurse to stand by and then proceeded. All was fine - no reaction at all. (Thank you to the contrast dye chemists who have improved their formulas!) That alone made me smile. The best part - Beerman took me for breakfast at the local diner downtown. It was wonderful and we hadn't been there in years - nothing has changed. (Hey, I hadn't had anything but clear liquids since Monday evening - I was hungry.) Nothing better than eggs over easy, bacon, sausage, hash browns and toast. I almost ordered a cup of cheese grits but... Thank you, Beerman. I'm blessed as he's also making dinner tonight. ;)
