Croatia 2 Week Itinerary, Europe



This is a quick summary of my Croatia 2 Week itinerary.

Croatia is quite a small country and I feel this itinerary was not rushed, but we did keep moving.

There were a few things I wanted to do but did not get the chance to do (due to time constraints). I think a full month in Croatia would give enough time to do the additional few things I wanted to, as well as making it a bit more relaxed.

I do feel, however, than I have travelled Croatia sufficiently enough (for me) that I do not feel that I would have to return, unlike many countries in South America that I ‘zipped’ through and definitely need to do again.
