My strategy for travel is to get the difficult places out of the way while I'm still young enough to do so. People who wait until they're retired to do that "bucket list" safari have a rude awakening. The game preserves of East Africa are not for the frail or infirm.

I'm looking forward to New Zealand. But I'm going to knock out a few more difficult places, like Lhasa, which are going to be far too strenuous when I'm older.

RE-READ. my. post.

"That's why SO MUCH of Croatia looks like..." Not the majority. Not all of it. Not the inland sections. But all the parts by the sea have that look about them. P-u-l-a, for instance:



Or Zadar:



And the best part is that if the traveler gets sick of Venice-influence and the remnants of Dalmatia, he or she can head inland and go on endless winery tours. Next time I go there, its going to be on a sailboat. The Adriatic is more fun than even the Caribbean.

The best thing you could possibly do is check your attitude next time you travel and hope it gets lost in transit.

Even along the coast very little of it looks like what you are trying to depict. You obviously haven't been there, so why do you keep insisting something that simply isn't true? I have been both inland and cruised the entire length of the country. Have you?

You are also wrong about "endless winery tours." There are only two major wine regions. Even though they are spread through much of the country, it's not like the Napa valley where there they are one after another. It can be 50 or more miles between each small vineyard and winery. Often the winery produces only one or two wines--and only a barrel or two of each--and there isn't any tour--the entire winery consists of a 20 x 20 room. The number of acres under vine in Croatia is only slightly higher than in Napa County, yet spread out over an area the size of South Carolina.

Just a note: visit the 12 countries before you turn 30 or 40, you don't want to visit it while old and in a wheelchair. By the age of 40 you should be working on your 12 runner-ups.
I've pretty much been everywhere in the world, many places twice, so now I am just working on the "ehhh, nice to see if I get around to it" list.

Are you saying by the age of 40 most people are frail?

I did not travel out of the US until I was 46. Now at the age of 62 I've lived in 3 countries and visited 17. We take 2 long trips a year (one to two months each) and several shorter ones. Since we are retired we can go whenever we want.
