Bring watershoes when visiting Krka National Park

Before visiting Croatia, what came to mind was its beautiful coastlines dotted with enchanting old towns. What I found more unexpected after my recent trip was its jaw-droppingly stunning national parks, none more so than Krka National Park.

Situated around an hour and a half from Split, the park is perfect for a sunny day of hiking, swimming, exploring, and just enjoying nature.

No modern conveniences in Prokosko Jezero

Located 1670 meters above sea level this shepherd town with no electricity attracts tourists during spring and summer. When winter hits, the entire town is covered in snow forcing the inhabitants to take their flocks and reside in towns at the base of the mountain. The scenic mountaintop is perfect for hiking but don’t expect modern conveniences!

We Camped Spain!

Going on a vacation to anywhere (especially overseas) can be a completely stressful and expensive endeavor leading up to and during the vacation. Tickets are always a little too expensive, decent hotels are hard to find, and there’s always those arguments of what you want to do/see and if you have the time to do it.

We decided that we were going to scratch just about all of that, and go on a little more unconventional vacation to experience a taste of Spain.
