I had never been to Croatia but found it to be a great place with beautiful scenery and a tremendous history. I went with my wife and we had some of the most amazing meals overlooking a fantastic coastline.

Recent visits

I am still planning on a trip to Perú just after Christmas but have recently been back to Spain and then to Croatia.

The trip to Spain was a parallel universe experience as I contributed to an English language immersion experience in an isolated hotel in Extramadura. This turned out to be quite entertaining as duties only extended to talking in English in 50 minute 1:1 conversations and during informal sessions like at mealtimes and around the pool. Other than fares it was free and as you can see I met some splendid people and made some new friends!

Luckily I had some additional time in Madrid and managed some cycling and witnessed the Spanish enjoying their impressive European cup win.
