Visit Split – the Appeal of a Lively Mediterranean City

Initially I was somehow under the impression that Split was a sleepy, walled, old town on the Dalmatian coast similar to Dubrovnik but upon our arrival there one late evening, it was immediately evident that besides being large, Split is very much alive and buzzing with energy. We used Split as a base for our travels […]

Discovering Croatia’s Flavours

Croatian food proved to be a delightful revelation to Nikki and myself. It is tasty, fresh and very diverse and whereas we have always targeted Sicily and mainland Italy for our food trips, we have discovered that neighbouring Croatia provides some stiff competition with many restaurants dishing up some very fresh, high quality and relatively inexpensive […]

The Food in Kosovo – Travel Kosovo

Heavy on meat, cheese and pastry, the food in Kosovo is similar to that in other Balkan countries but includes a local twist. Grilled meats and cheeses are common food elements found in several dishes whilst pies are plentiful. The food in Kosovo is traditionally home-made, and even at restaurants you can expect to be served […]
