Where do you want to travel, now and in the future? My list remains long, especially since last year the travels were short since travel, was, for the most part, halted in its tracks. It is now time to make up for the lost time. Really, though, we can’t make up for lost time as time continues to move on. We never get that time back, be it for travel, family, friends or whatever is most important to you. All we can do is make the best of the situation of which we had no control. We still have to be vigilant, but also optimistic. We will travel again, and that said, the Wandering Puffin will be doing just that in less than two months to a country, that with the proper protocol, including proof of the vaccine regimen completed, will allow Americans in. I am crossing the pond and truly excited to return to this continent, almost 15 months to the day I left.
Where you ask? I am glad you did!!! I will tell you and share my experiences I have while there. Oh, almost forgot!!! I am returning to Croatia to attend the ASTA Destination Expo which will be held in Dubrovnik, an amazing walled city on the Adriatic Sea. While I have been there before, I will have a new perspective of this destination which will also include a mini island hopping cruise out of Split, time truffle hunting and other experiences in Istria and ending in the capital, Zagreb. Some places will be a return visit, but with a new appreciation in this time of Covid, some totally new, but the Wandering Puffin is spreading his wings again.
Croatia, known for its amazing landscape, wonderful national parks, a beautiful coastline, colorful history and culture, not to mention the delicious foods, locally sourced, and wine for any palette and contrary and with apologies to my Italian colleagues and friends, the Crljenak grape from Croatia, is the original zinfandel varietal, not the Primitivo grape from Italy. I will be sharing my experiences with the GoPro and doing Facebook Live presentations at every opportunity sharing an amazing destination in a very different time.
Where do you want to travel when you are ready? The Wandering Puffin wants to know and thanks you for following me and for your support of this small business.
