Croatia 2013

Another year & another holiday ticked off.  Croatia was our destination this year and a fantastic resort run by Radisson Blu. The apartment we stayed in was beautiful, 2 en-suite bedrooms and an open plan kitchen /lounge.

Breakfast was served daily in the outside dining area for guests, then there were a variety of eateries to pick from at night.  At lunch we tended to snack on items from the grocery store on site.

Overall the temperature was hot - high 20's- low 30's daily - too hot to do anything major, so we chose to relax by the pool, read, and swim.  We also used the leisure club for table tennis and Alan went to the gym daily.

One day we did bus into Dubrovnik, to visit the old town.  It was incredibly picturesque, but I have to say, we found the heat too much and didn't explore to any great extent - instead we headed back to the resort & the cool waters there.

All in all, it was a lovely holiday and I would certainly recommend it to anyone who likes it hot.  The sea swimming was brilliant & it was nice to spend family time away from computers and phones (briefly boys!)  For me however, much as I enjoyed it, the best bit was coming home to a cool grey day in Aberdeen! There's no pleasing some folk!!! What am I like?

And that's it for my take on Croatia.  Finally, a big thank you to everyone who continued to visit my blog and leave comments while we were away.  As always, your comments were appreciated, & I hope to get round all your blogs before the weekend's through. Jx

Sounds wonderful...I can tolerate hot...the hotter the better. I have a friend I work with that is from there and she goes home every other year for 2 months. She's always said for me to join her for a few weeks....I think I need to take the plunge.
