Just got back today from a month long trip in Eastern Europe. Croatia.................absolutely UNREAL. So far, the best country in Europe I've been too. The country is absolutely amazing, the only thing it lacks is good cuisine. Croatia hasn't been completely overrun with tourists yet, but is about to be because word is quickly getting out. I'm kind of glad also that Croatia hasn't been allowed into the EU yet also, their heritage and culture has been pretty well preserved.

Great pics by the way flopito. Have you posted any of Mljet National Park? I really wanted to visit there but simply ran out of time. If you have posted pics, could you point me to the post#?

According to the descriptions in Homers epic tale of The Odyssey, many explorers and experts consider Mljet to be the island of Ogygia - the beautiful island where the nymph Calypso held Odysseus for 7 years. The name of the island itself speaks of its beauty, which is derived from the Greek word "melite nesos" which means „honey island“.

Mljet lies south of the Pelješac peninsula, from which it is divided by the Mljet Channel. Its length is 37 kilometres (23 mi); its average breadth 3.2 kilometres (2.0 mi). It is of volcanic origin,[citation needed] with numerous chasms and gorges, of which the longest, the Babino Polje, connects the north and south of the island. Port Polače, the principal harbour in the north, is a port of call for tourist ferries. Mljet contains one hotel - The Odisej (from the Greek Odysseus) in the north-west corner of the island.
The northwestern part of the island includes an inland sea as well as a small island within it. It has been a national park since November 12, 1960.
Ancient Greeks called the island "Melita" or "honey" which over the centuries evolved to become the Slavic name, Mljet (pronounced [mʎɛt]).
Over 84% of the island of 98.01 square kilometres (37.84 sq mi) is forest.[5] The island's geological structure consists of limestone and dolomite forming ridges, crests and slopes. A few depressions on the island of Mljet are below sea level and are known as blatine ("mud-lakes") or slatine ("salt-lakes"). During the rain seasons all blatine are filled with water and turn to brackish during dry seasons.






You have any pics from trip?

Very nice flopito - I love birdwatching and nature photos and love agriculture/rural life as well.

In one post you have a large bird taking off from a nest on a thatched house. A stork of some sort - do you know what kind?
