Let’s Go Exploring! Zadar, Croatia: The Best Sunset in the World

Croatians hate it when tourists come to Croatia, ignore its history, food, and culture, only to ask “So, uh, where’s all the Game of Thrones stuff?” So, of course the first question I asked when I got to Zadar was “Where’s all the Game of Thrones stuff?” My tour guide’s response: “Most of that is in Dubrovnik. Here in Zadar, we’re low key and not full of tourists.” That turned out to be a blessing.  With a population of just 87,000, Zadar felt more intimate and local.

How to Travel for Free with Home Exchange

TV show guest: “Back in my day, we didn’t have video games. The only toys we had were chalk that we used to draw on a sidewalk” Eric (*incredulous*): “You had chalk?” Me (*even more incredulous*): “You had a SIDEWALK?” I never expected to find my country bumpkin doppelganger in Miami, but that’s exactly what happened when I met my Airbnb host several years ago.
