Croatia Travel Guide - Dubrovnik, Split and Hvar

I just got back from beautiful historic Croatia, whose city, Dubrovnik is famous for being Kingsland in the infamous Game of Thrones TV show but in reality, it's a beautiful country with a decent amount of heritage sites. Let's clear the air, I did not and will not watch Game of Thrones LOL so No that's not why I went to visit. I chose Croatia for two reasons; It's not the trending spot now- I wanted a place not on the map if that makes sense and a lot of its cities are very easily accessible by car/ferry- I get to see a lot in one trip and I got to do it with my TWIN! Let's get into it, shall we!

I visited 3 cities in Croatia; Dubrovnik, Split, and Hvar. As you will notice, red roofs are to Croatia as blue roofs are to Santorini. The people are nice and very helpful and truly have a sense of pride in their country. I can't speak too much into the culture because I frequented the more touristic cities so it was a lot of diverse food. Their faucet water throughout the country is drinkable as is all the fountain water (not referring to US type water fountains, I'm talking huge fountains with Lions carve into them. You can't miss them) and there's a lot of fountains. Buy one bottle of water and just refill. Croatia has a lot of beaches as they're pretty much located on the border of the Adriatic Sea but their beaches are rocky and it's really hard to walk on barefoot. The summers are HOT so beware if you're going in the summer and their peak seasons are July and August. Uber is big in Croatia and the taxis double as Ubers so check out taxi license plates as well. Currency wise; most businesses accept Euros but their main currency is the kuna. Wifi is also easily accessible at restaurants and general areas.

Dubrovnik is an old city famous for its old town. Think of a city inside a city much like Cartagena. While it's famous for being home to Game of Thrones, it was also home to Star wars - I forget which one (also did not watch Star Wars) and rumor has it the next James Bond movie will be shot there too. A lot of what you will have to do in Dubrovnik will be in the walls of Old town.

Tackle New Orleans in 48 hrs

                                                           NOLA Darling!

You don’t have to break the bank to go on an adventure and immerse yourself in culture. New Orleans is proof of that. Social media has us trying to go to Greece on an Arkansas budget. I’m not saying don’t save to travel to your dream destination, I’m saying you don’t necessarily have to go that far for a getaway.

I’ve been to New Orleans before but always for Mardis Gras when everyone else and they mama were in town. This time I wanted to experience the city for what it really was. Here’s a rundown of my experience in 48hrs. If you’re only here for my itinerary scroll down to the bottom for a snapshot of how my days were planned. It’ll be worth reading though because I did include stuff that I didn’t do that might be worth trying.

Being the OCD planner that I am, I had this all planned way in advance. I forgot to account for the rain -_- but I still ended up achieving everything I intended to #boss. I went on this trip with my soul sister Maria and I’m truly grateful to have friends who just let me run on out with the planning LOL. We stayed at the fabulous Eliza Jane and I picked this strictly for my instagrammable pictures AND the fact that it was 2 blocks away from French Quarter. I strongly advise staying closer to the French quarter makes Ubers cheaper but also allows you to be walking distance of many attractions. Other fab options will be Henry Howard hotel and Catahoula hotel (Double check their locations).
