Zadar to Zagreb, Croatia
We enjoyed another terrific day visiting Croatia.
We first spent time in the community of Zadar. It’s most famous for the “SEA ORGAN”. I posted a video on Facebook of the Organ Sounds the sea was making – a very unique attraction!
It was great fun exploring the town of Zadar – around every corner was another picture opportunity.
Lunch was at an excellent restaurant located at Croatia’s UNESCO National Park. Here they cook using traditional methods (cast iron covers are put over the food – wood coals are placed around the covers).
We enjoyed views of the spectacular waterfalls and lakes of the National Park.
We are staying in Zagreb for 2 nights. Here the average wage is 500 Euro a month. Most family’s need 1000 Euro a month to get by so they often struggle.
The current city mayor has spent funds making the city pretty and that is causing much controversy. We appreciated the beautiful gardens – the tulips are in bloom.
We are staying in Zagreb’s highest rated 5 star hotel – the posh, ESPLANADE ZAGREB. When celebrities and “Travel With Bradley” passengers come to town this is their hotel of choice – its fabulous!
Dinner was held at a wonderful upscale restaurant just a stones throw from the city main square – the appetizer featured local truffles – every course was delicious!
Pumpkin seed oil is produced in Croatia and is a delicacy. I pre-ordered large bottles of this oil as gifts for my passengers. I was pleased that the farmer was able to private brand the bottles with a “Travel With Bradley” label. I presented this gift to everyone when we returned from dinner.
