Croatia Travel Photos

Janine and I just returned from almost two weeks traveling in Croatia. For both of us it was our first time there and we found it an absolute joy.

Austria’s Silvretta Ski Tour

The Silvretta Tour Home. As good as Euro huts are, we still love to be home, and especially home eating a huge, fresh salad. Tomorrow morning’s breakfast will not include dry bread and jam. Those that have been on Euro ski tours will fully understand dry bread and jam. Janine and I fell sick on the last day, spent a …
