Croatia: Zadar and Split

I was looking forward to a couple of nice, sunny weeks in Croatia,but it’s fair to say that it wasn’t my cup of tea.

Instead,  I stayed in Zagreb for a couple of nights to try and work out what I’d be doing over the next couple of weeks and saw that there was a taxi service to Plitvice National Park, which is one of the reasons I wanted to come to the country. I was intending to stay for a couple of nights, but the weather forecast is pretty bad, so a day did me just fine.
