There is a sweet taste of melancholy in the air after our final show, although performance has been my auxiliary goal to observing Daniel's behaviour, it has had an addictive quality that leaves me yearning for longevity in this project so I could indulge in more of its more-ish byproduct.

I found a secluded spot for this rather epic sunset.. .I'm sure it is rammed during the summer! The only downfall to visiting off season is the public boats do not taxi to the surrounding islands. Only reason to visit again - ideally on a yacht!

Is Croatia Doing Enough to Protect Itself From a Booming Tourism Industry?

Justin Francis | Posted 06.09.2014 | UK Lifestyle
Justin Francis

From war-torn to holiday hotspot in a very short space of time, Croatia's popularity with tourists is all the more remarkable given its very unsettled, very recent past.

With the first leg of our bicycle tour, from Rome to Russia, behind us, Stephen and I have been reflecting on the best food, drink, and accommodation we've had.
