Rafting on Croatia’s Cetina River

Sunday, June 27th, 2010

Last Saturday we headed 45 minutes south of Split to the town of Omiš and the Cetina River for a rafting adventure with Milda and Mario.

The scenery along the river was captivating as we passed through the tall rock cliffs of the Cetina gorge, and our guide from Adriaturist

I woke up to the sun shining into our room and the sound of the waves crashing on the shore beneath our balcony. I rolled over and looked at my watch. It was only 5:00 am.

Aunt Christina comes to Split

Wednesday, June 2nd, 2010
