What I did on my summer vacation...

Maria, Kelli, Jennifer,

When my friend, Angela, mentioned doing a bicycling tour of Croatia for her 40th birthday, I wasn't very excited. What about riding Tuscany's beautiful countryside and tasting wine along the way? How about the green hills of Ireland? But she was set on Croatia. So I packed my helmet and gloves and boarded the plane with pretty much no expectations. Boy was I wrong! Croatia is a wonderful country with the most amazing blue sea, outstanding risotta and pizza, and history galore. Enjoy!

Itinerary: Dubrovnik, Split, Island of Brac for our first ride and visit to the Klesarkska Skola (stonemason school) in Pucisca and to Skrip, the oldest settlement on Brac. Other Brac sights: Zlatni Rat (pennisula), cities of Nerezisca, Dracevica, Lozisca.

From Brac to the island of Hvar... Canals of Vrboska, purple doors, quirky fishermen and our farewell dinner.
