Okay, don’t let the title of this post fool you: I didn’t actually get lost. However, I did venture around our neighborhood in Podstrana for a while to see more of the real Croatia up close and in person. We stayed at a beautiful resort on the beach named Hotel Eden, so a quick walk outside put me smack dab on the shore. After hanging out by the water for a bit, I found this cool little backstreet that I wandered down for a while.
The area reminded me of my summers in the Caribbean as a child. My sister and I would spend a few weeks in St. Kitts or St. Lucia, depending on which set of grandparents we were visiting, every year, and the tropical vibe and quaint design of the homes definitely brought back a few familiar feelings. -J
