When we visited Split Croatia, a couchsurfer offered to host us in nearby Slatine. Before arriving, we offered to pick them up near Omis at a hostel they were staying at. These people were some of the most generous and amazing people we met in Croatia. We felt like we had a bit of a real hostel experience even though we were only there for a few hours. It was such a breath of fresh air and a knock your socks off kind of place.
While we were in Zadar Croatia, we enjoyed watching a storm come in. As the winds started picking up, the waves furiously spilled over the banks of the seawall. We had to be careful or else we were going to get wet. The pier was completely washed over with the waves and it would be very dangerous to walk on it. It was quite an amazing thing to see.
