The Best Country to Visit: Croatia

“Kaylen, what is your favorite country you’ve been to?” I thought it’d be Italy. I thought it’d be France. I thought it’d be Spain: three beautiful countries, and three top contenders for sure. But I would actually have to go with Croatia. Where even is Croatia? At first, I didn’t know. It’s essentially the neighbor…

Day 15 — Adios Barcelona

Well, here we are, Day 15. We made it. The last day of Barcelona and final day of our whole trip! Today we kicked back & relaxed. Nothing crazy planned, we just decided to do what we do best: eat and shop. We started off our last day roaming around the streets in search of breakfast,…

Day 14 — Exploring Gaudi

Day 10 — Plitvice Lakes National Park

Today we visited the most beautiful place on earth, I’m convinced. The bluer than blue waters and graceful waterfalls were straight out of a fantasy novel. I think Plitvice was enough to put Croatia up on my list of all time favorites. Today will be a shorter blog post–less words, more pictures…because I want to show…
