Happy Friday!

I hope your summer is wonderful so far. Filled with plenty of sunshine and amazing travels. I am just coming off of almost 6 weeks of back-to-back trips, and am really happy to be home. Now it is time to enjoy the rest of the summer in Vienna, at the pool, the river and my favorite heurigen. And of course try to catch up with everything around here. First on my list is to get all of my photos edited and uploaded to share with you soon!

But in the meantime, a few of my favorite things lately:

Have a wonderful weekend!!

A great itinerary for 9 days sailing through the islands in Northern Croatia - including stops on Krk, Cres and Rab islands!

Croatia is made up of over 1,185 islands. Only 48 of these islands are inhabited, and some seem more like large rocks than actual islands. The landscape of these islands varies widely, from white rocky shorelines to heavy woods filled with fir trees. The islands of Croatia are all so unique, and so very gorgeous, but many are challenging to get to. The best way to explore these islands is by boat.

We were so fortunate that my cousins graciously hosted us on their beautiful sailboat last month. We had the most amazing time sailing with them through the islands of Northern Croatia.

EthnoHouses01

There is no shortage of guest houses and accommodations for those visiting Plitviče Lakes National Park. Most are just simple rooms, with little extra. After all, most people come for the park and nothing more. But if you are traveling with kids, or you are looking for something special, Ethno Houses Plitvica Selo is the place for you.

Ethno Houses Plitvica Selo is an idyllic, family-run resort located just 400 meters from entrance 3 and the boat dock. It was designed to look like an old, traditional village, with everything made of wood and natural materials to blend in seamlessly with the beautiful surroundings.

Weekend in Plitvice

Easily one of the most beautiful natural sights in Europe, Plitviče Lakes National Park (Plitvička Jezera) is made up of over 16 terraced lakes joined by spectacular waterfalls. Each lake has a distinctive and vivd, blue-green color due to the moss, algae, and travertine present in the water.

At 295 square kilometers, Plitviče is the largest of Croatia’s eight National parks. It is the oldest national park in Southeast Europe (declared as a national park in 1949) and one of the first natural sites designated as an UNESCO World Heritage site.

Plitviče Lakes National Park is a perfect weekend destination, or a great add-on to any trip to Croatia! We spent a few days in Plitviče during our road trip through Croatia and had a fabulous time.

A Few of My Favorite Things - beautiful sunset at the Punat Marina on Krk Island in Croatia

And just like that, 2016 is half way over. Probably feels that way because these last two months have flown by. We have been traveling non-stop and there is no end in sight. After a nice (adult) weekend in Berlin, we had a quick 12-hour turnaround at home and left straightaway with the kids on a road trip through Croatia. A week sailing around the islands, then on to Plitviče Lakes, the Zadar region and Zagreb. Next up: Stockholm. It has been a whirlwind, but so worth it! Summer in Europe is my favorite!
