It’s Sunday night and I’m sitting on a set of stairs in the underbelly of a thousand-year-old fortress listening to a woman sing in French, her voice rising above the sound of chatter (in a handful of languages) and chinking glasses, just…piercing me. With a glass of wine in one hand and the hand of […]
The Cathedral of St. James is the main tourist site in Šibenik, Croatia, and for good reason–it’s a UNESCO World Heritage site in the center of the old city and a crazy cool blend of architectural influences.
Šibenik is one of those places that you want to tell everyone about but also kind of keep a secret at the same time because it’s so beautiful and uncrowded during the summer months. It has everything you could ask for in a perfect summer vacation spot: a beautiful beach, views of the sea […]
Šibenik has been the longest stop in our travels so far, so it feels a bit more like home than any other place we’ve been.

Driving the Dalmatian Coast of Croatia is unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. It justifiably shows up on almost every list of the most beautiful coastal drives in the world. After spending a few days in Dubrovnik, it was time for us to head back up the coast to Šibenik (our temporary home for this stretch of our […]
Here are more photos from our Dubrovnik trip…I love a lot of these because I think they really give you a feel for how the castle walls envelope the entire city. There are a few shots of the walls from walking them, but also from way above the city–you can ride a gondola to observation decks […]
Here are the rest of our Split photos…I’m super impressed with us for condensing them into two posts considering we started out with a ridiculous number between the two of us. The first photo is from Diocletian’s Palace, which is actually a huge area within the old city of Split and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. […]
After being on the coast of Croatia for almost two months now, we are finally (!) getting through our photos. In our defense, we’ve been working (and traveling) a lot and have taken literally thousands of photos, so it’s been tough finding the time to go through them. Prepare to be bombarded in the next […]
