Being in Germany for quite a while now, I still like to write and think in English. My children are bilingual, they feel in both languages at home. This blog is my way to be able to look after my language skills.
Last year I spent a few days together with my family in Trogir. Trogir is a historical city in Croatia. The old part of Trogir was a little adventure for my young children. They stared amazed at the old churches and buildings. My youngest daughter was even more impressed by the citygate and the old citywalls. "It looks like a picture from my fairy-tale book.", she said. We walked over the streets in Trogir and stopped at various places. Of course also to take a coffee and a piece of cake. In the evening of the first day we cooked together in our holiday home, which we booked with casamundo. The second day we spent at the coast. The children played in the water while we lay lazy at the beach, keeping an eye on them. There were a lot of tourists at the beach, but we still had enough space to feel comfortable. The only annoying guests were some students playing beach volleyball. The third day we went to see Kamerlengo Castle which is a fortress in Trogir. It's more than fivehundred years old and quite impressing. For change we did not cook at our holiday home, but went out for dinner. We found a really good restaurant in the old city center of Trogir, it's called Capo Trogir: http://capo-trogir.com/. Since our children were so enthusiastic about the beach, we went there again on the fifth day of our journey, but we searched for an area where nobody would play beach volleyball. The beach of Trogir is reallly large enough to find more calmer places for families. And the quality of the water and the restrooms was amazing.I even saw a diaper changing table for families with babies.
Our last day in Trogir was a day we spent doing the things we liked most: Visiting the souvenir shops, bathing, eating icecream and at the evening we tried some more dishes at capo-trogir.com. We really liked the restaurant, the service was friendly and they spoke pretty well English.
Especially our daughters were sad when we had to leave our holiday home to go to the airport. I was just happy that I didn't have to clean the house. It was really comfortable to arrive at a clean place and leaving it without worrying about laundry or passing the vacuum cleaner. Of course my family didn't think about this advantage when we decided to book a holiday home here. We were surprised how easy it was to book online.
It was our first trip to Croatia and I think we will go there again. The people are open and friendly to tourists, you feel welcomed wherever you go. Of course you have one or two bad experiences but what remained is a good impression.
Our next journey is already fixed. We go this summer to Zagreb . Probably we book again a holiday home. We liked to have the possiblity to cook for ourselves. The children can be noisy and we can watch television and check emails. I am looking forward to the next holiday, especially in these grey days!
