      • Watching your photos I am glad I have 10 days of Southern California in sight in October. This limits my yearning a little… 😉 But to be honest, I said to my husband yesterday, that we really should think about Croatia for a vacation.It is not that far away… so…. we’ll see… at least it caught me thanks to you!

      • Great~! Southern California is a dream. I try to go at least once every two years. What will you be doing there? Let’s hope your husband bites. Fingers crossed for you!

      • It is my 8th time in California (always around the same area) within 5 1/2 years. I simply love it like my second home. In October I am there (in Pasadena) at the HayHouse event “I Can Do it!” where all their authors are giving lectures and workshops. Acutally it is a business trip since I am there as an official author for book signing! I am very excited about it!

      • I’ll let you know the next time I go because you never know we may cross each others path. I can sense your excitement for your upcoming author book signing. You worked hard for it! Enjoy my dear!

      • He lived in Vukovar with his mother’s family. They came back to America after his father died in World War I. After I found out that information I have wanted to visit to see what more records I could find! A visit is something I plan for the future 🙂

      • He lived in Vukovar with his mother and her family. They left after his father died in World War I. After I found out that information I have been thinking about visiting to see what else I could find. One day! 🙂

  1. I was in Croatia for two weeks some years ago, and one of my best friends is from there, but there are many of facts you point out here that didn’t know. I would like to vist the smallest town in the world with 20 habitants. Maybe next time, while in Croatia!
    Enjoyed reading this post! Well written and done!

    • I wish I could have spent two weeks there. There is so much to see and do. I learned so much while traveling through the country and the facts I presented here were just the fun ones! Yes, there is always next time! Start dreaming sister! Thanks so much again for your support, comments, and likes. Much appreciated.
