After our one-night stay in Zagreb, we rented a car and invited Seihee, the traveler from South Korea whom we met the day before, to ride with us to Lake Plitvice National Park.
The first view of the waterfalls from up top.
Another view of the falls and the plank walkways from up top.
Notice there are no handrails. I wondered how many people have stepped or slipped off (or been accidentally shoved off) the trail.
At the base of the grand falls.
We visited on a weekend day of “Family Week” when it was outrageously crowded, but at a super reduced entrance fee.
Plitvice has 16 terrace-like lakes interconnected by waterfalls.
The water was very clear.
The park has miles of trails.
The next day we headed out to enjoy a drive through the beautiful Croatian countryside and along the coastal highway. It was a luxury to have the liberty to drive ourselves.
Zoom in! I think I see the ocean.
The sun feels great!
Such a lovely spot for coffee, and a perfect temperature in Karlobag.
There are over 1100 islands off of Croatia’s Adriatic coastline.
Climbing the mountains, we headed back to our place near Plitvice.
The photos speak for themselves. Croatia is simply gorgeous!
Fun fact: The necktie (cravat) was invented by a Croatian.
Meet You in the Morning next time with photos from Zadar, Croatia.
