His Take: Party Under the Roman Ruins by the Sea in Pula, Istria

His Take: Party Under the Roman Ruins by the Sea in Pula, Istria

Pula is a small port city in the northern tip of Croatia and works as a perfect base camp if you are looking to treck around Istria, which I would highly recommend as the region is gorgeous and considerably cheaper than popular southern destinations such as Dubrovnik. If you only have time for one day trip during your stay in ... Read More »

Her Take: A Taste of Rome in Pula, Croatia

Her Take: A Taste of Rome in Pula, Croatia

Pula, Croatia, was the first pit stop on our two-week trip filled with cheap beer and nude beaches. While it definitely wasn’t my favorite city in this country filled with delicious seafood and crystal-clear water, it was still memorable. We were lucky enough to be here during the Euro Cup, and our first night was spent at the town square ... Read More »

His Take: Party Your Face Off at Zrce Beach (Croatia’s Ibiza)

His Take: Party Your Face Off at Zrce Beach (Croatia’s Ibiza)

For anyone planning a trip to Croatia, all of the guide books will tell you the same thing. Visit Plitvice Lakes, swim in the Blue Grotto, and hit up Zlatni Rat Beach. Of these experiences, I will only endorse Zlatni Rat. The other two are not worth the treck. The sad thing is, there is so much more to Croatia ... Read More »

His Take:  Relax on the Best Pebble Beach in the World at Zlatni Rat

His Take: Relax on the Best Pebble Beach in the World at Zlatni Rat

Jamie and I had seen pictures of Zlatni Rat front and center on just about every single Croatian travel guide we scanned through prior to our trip. It looked like a pretty nice beach, but we had also heard that it was kind of a pain to get to… out of the way, overrated, all that jazz. I can’t remember ... Read More »

Her Take: Why Rovinj Beats Venice as the Most Romantic Travel Destination

Her Take: Why Rovinj Beats Venice as the Most Romantic Travel Destination

If you ask most people what the most romantic travel destination is from around the world, chances are the answer will be Venice. When on exchange in England I managed to make it over to this classic town in April, which was a great time to avoid the high season and wander the endless side streets without breaking a sweat. But ... Read More »

His Take: Why Rovinj is the Most Romantic City You’ve Never Heard Of

His Take: Why Rovinj is the Most Romantic City You’ve Never Heard Of

I was recently reading an article on the web that ranked Venice as the most romantic city in the world. Not exactly shocking as the image of a man with a striped shirt and red scarf paddling a gondola through the tight canals has been emblazoned on the cover of countless “vacation in Europe” travel guides. What Venice is missing ... Read More »

Her Take: Pleasant Nature Walks at Plitvice Lakes National Park

Her Take: Pleasant Nature Walks at Plitvice Lakes National Park

Plitvice Lakes National Park is rated as one of the top 10 places to see before you die by Cool Hunting, so naturally Kyle and I figured it would be a good idea to trek out and see this natural wonder. My opinion is not as strong as Kyle’s on this matter, but I wouldn’t say this day trip was ... Read More »

His Take: Plitvice Lakes, Out of the Way and Overrated

His Take: Plitvice Lakes, Out of the Way and Overrated

Before Jamie and I made the trek to Croatia, we had heard from scores of various people about this place called Plitvice Lakes. Apparently, it was otherworldy. “Like, straight out of Avatar,” one guy told us. I had even seen Plitvice on a list of “Top 10 Places to Visit Before You Die.” There must be far too many people ...

Her Take: The Female Guide to Enjoying Nude Beaches in Croatia

Her Take: The Female Guide to Enjoying Nude Beaches in Croatia

When Kyle told me he was excited to visit the nude beaches of Croatia, it caught me by surprise. As outlined in his review on the beaches of Lopar, he is naturally risk averse and anything but a thrill seeker. However, the thought of walking around in your birthday suit amongst complete strangers appealed to him, and since I’ve dragged ... Read More »

His Take: A Man’s Guide to Nude Beaches in Croatia

His Take: A Man’s Guide to Nude Beaches in Croatia

The town of Lopar on Rab Island is quite simply one of the most naturally spectacular locations in the world. Crystal clear waters, breathtaking views of mainland Croatia, a hot, arid climate that might as well push you in to the water, and clothing optional: for the most part. Original Photography From coupleofyuppies I wouldn’t generally categorize myself as a ... Read More »
