Come Travel With Me in Croatia! (For Real)

Dubrovnik Croatia

When I first started LandLopers 8 years ago, I didn’t know what I was doing or how it would eventually change my life. All I knew was that I wasn’t happy and I certainly wasn’t living my best life. I had lost focus, I had forgotten what truly energized me in life – exploring the world and learning more about people in all corners of the planet. Since then I have come to better understand the power of travel and have seen how it has changed my life in what really is a relatively short period of time. I have also been fortunate enough to visit scores of countries around the world, learning just as much about myself as those beautiful destinations. One thing that has been missing is that I wish I could share these experiences with other people, share with them how I explore the world and how I love to travel. For years folks have asked me about hosting a trip so that they could travel with me, also giving me the opportunity to share how I do what I do. Well, I am very excited to say that I’m finally doing it! I’m hosting my first trip and EVERYONE is invited!

Not Croatia, but hey that’s me!

I will be hosting a 9-day trip to Croatia – one of my favorite countries in the world! I’ve visited Croatia several times over the years and have fine-tuned the experience, learning the best spots to visit and the activities that make trips something no one will soon forget. Along the way, there will be plenty of opportunities to learn from each other, share how we all travel and I’m sure become good friends. To make this happen, I’m partnering with a great company – Trova Trip – to make sure everything goes seamlessly and so, frankly, I don’t have to deal with some of the boring details.

My site has become so much more than just a travel blog, over the years we have built a fantastic community and I’m excited to take that relationship to the next level – by traveling together!

This is a small group trip and spots are VERY limited, so if you want to experience the best of Croatia with me in 2019, be sure to sign up ASAP.

The details:

When: March 29 – April 6, 2019

Where in Croatia: Zagreb, Plitvice, Zadar, Split and Dubrovnik

What’s included? Hotels, transportation, breakfasts, special welcome and goodbye experiences, tours, unique activities and more!

This trip is honestly perfect for just about everyone. I put together an itinerary that I think is the ideal way to experience Croatia whether it’s your first visit or you’ve been before. I’ve added in a few special activities that I personally love and am sure you all will too. It’s also a great way to make some new friends and, to be modest, hang out with me for a week! Remember, I wanted this to be an intimate group, so please be sure to sign up today!

Plitvice Croatia

Full itinerary

Day 1 – Welcome to Zagreb, the capital of Croatia! Relax a little and explore on your own before joining the group for a special welcome dinner.

Day 2 – A local expert will join us in the morning to give us the low down on Zagreb and share what makes it so very special. In the afternoon enjoy free time to explore either on your own or with other tour participants. (Tip: My favorite spot is the Museum of Broken Relationships)

Day 3 – We will hit the road to Zadar a little early so we can make a very special stop along the way to Plitvice Lakes National Park. This UNESCO World Heritage Site is the stuff of Instagram dreams and I’ll help you pick the perfect spot for those photos.

Day 4 – Zadar is one of my favorite cities in the world and I can’t wait to share it with everyone! A local expert will spend the morning with use before letting us go off on our own to discover what makes it so very special. Don’t miss the sunset, it’s widely considered to be one of the best in the world.

Split Croatia

Day 5 – The Dalmatian Coast is truly incredible as you’ll see on the way to Split. Once there we’ll take a cooking class to learn (and eat) more about the unique cuisine here. We’ll then explore this ancient city on our own to discover what secrets it holds.

Days 6, 7 & 8 – We continue our coastal journey to the Jewel of the Adriatic, the incredible city of Dubrovnik. Game of Thrones may have made it world-famous, but it’s been a very special place for a very long time. We have a lot of fun experiences planned here including a special Game of Thrones walk and a kayak excursion around the city walls. I also have many secret spots that I personally love and which I can’t wait to share with everyone.

The end – We will enjoy one last farewell dinner before making our goodbyes, but never forgetting the special memories we created along the way!

    Love your blogs… a great admirer of your personality. I would suggest you include Dubai in your bucket list. It is a wonderful place and has a stunning desert.
