Krka National Park

Split Travel Blog

 › entry 9 of 26 › view all entries

Nick, Lucy, Moriah, Kate and I rented a car and we drove to Krka National Park. Al's directions to the hostel were less than perfect, but we managed somehow to find our way there. The highway infrastructure in Croatia seems really well developed, almost indistinguishable from the states. People in Croatia are generally pretty good drivers too, which was a welcome surprise from the chaos of Italy.

Anyway, we arrived at the parks, which were gorgeous. Imagine trees everywhere and crystal clear rivers winding around scenic bends, dipping down hills, and filled with schools of fish. The highlight of the park was the waterfalls which emptied out in a giant pool where everyone would swim. Some brave people, locals presumably, were even diving off the waterfalls into the pools. I thought about trying it, but then realized that I would probably die and not be able to update my TravBuddy blogs, which would not have been good at all.

I agree, we need you too much for you to be going off the deep end. :)
