Stunning stunning stunning. No wonder it is Croatia’s largest tourist attraction. The place is Eden. A truly magical water-world that man could never re-create. It’s pristine, it’s a land of fairy tales and enchantment. Azure blue pools and ultramarine lagoons – fish as calm and relaxed as I’ve ever seen them – living without the fear of ever being caught. Waterfalls one after the other and moss covered wooden walkways to guide you through the lush jungle that is the Plitvicka Lakes National Park.
Highly recommended – Also saw yet another snake – this time in the water.
“Adventure is a path. Real adventure – self-determined, self-motivated, often risky – forces you to have firsthand encounters with the world. The world the way it is, not the way you imagine it. Your body will collide with the earth and you will bear witness. In this way you will be compelled to grapple with the limitless kindness and bottomless cruelty of humankind – and perhaps realize that you yourself are capable of both. This will change you. Nothing will ever again be black-and-white.” –Mark Jenkins
