So when I was thinking about places to talk about on this month’s 101 post, I remembered watching this trash reality tv show (that I love with all my heart) called ‘Below Deck’ (Anyone?). The show is all about this deck crew on a yacht, and the other week they went to Croatia! Woah, no way, it all ties in.
First I had to check if anyone from Croatia has even seen my blog, and hell yah they have! A solid 17! What can I say, I’m kind of a big deal in Croatia. Croatia freaking loves me.
I’ll be honest, the first time I saw the flag of Croatia, I thought it was a pineapple. This is why my Croatian following is so high.
Because I’m high.
Now where in the world is Croatia?
Ayy! We’re no longer in the south! Bless up!
Let’s just get straight into what got my interested in Croatia: the Krka Falls.
They’re crazy beautiful! The minute I saw them, I instantly put them on my bucket list. I love them because they look like steps/stairs of waterfall, and I’ve never seen anything like them before in my life! There’s just so much falling water everywhere you look, it’s insane.
So how would I get there? I just looked up times from LAX to Croatia, and it’s only about 20 freaking hours. Cute. You’re funny. Basically spending a whole day in an airplane? Rip.
What language do Croatians speak? Croatian (wow I’m stupid), Bosnian, and Serbian. I also found out that most Croatians speak multiple languages which are most commonly English, German, or Italian. From what I’ve gathered, there would be no problem visiting Croatia if I don’t know Croatian. Bless.
What is the currency in Croatia? Croatian Kuna. One Kuna breaks down into 100 lipas (similarly to the U.S dollar breaking down into 100 pennies). The value of this currency is around 1 U.S dollar to 6.61 Croatian Kune. There are some exceptions to the Croatian Kuna, and certain items can be bought with euros- such as private accommodations, taxis, some small restaurants, etc.
What about a time difference? California is 9 hours behind Croatia, so basically Croatia knows the future- Croatia is the future. Don’t mess with Croatia.
What is the capital of Croatia? Zagreb, which looks a little something like this:The Zagreb Cathedral can pretty much be seen from any place in Zagreb, and it’s absolutely stunning. Another place to add to the bucket list(:
Anyways, that about ends this 101 post for Croatia! Have any of you ever been to Croatia? Do you know any other cool facts about Croatia? Hmu in the comments aha.
**Side note: I missed a post yesterday, v sad, I know aha. I’ll be post one tomorrow to make up for it, don’t worry about it (no one noticed? It’s fine aha).
