Saturday on the Riva. Arguably one of the finest pedestrian zones in the world. And, no shuttle buses!

Endless cafes. All full when the sun comes out. Frankly, Croatia may be more outdoor-oriented than Colorado.

ReAle. A delicious Italian IPA hiding out in Croatia like the rest of us!

As good an IPA as you can find! This from Italian craft brewer Birra del Borgo by way of the Italian Cheese deli about 30 meters from our apartment in Split, Croatia. A very fine beer! Photo: Diane Huntress

A good journey starts with a good breakfast. This, in Denver. From The Market in Larimer Square. Cherry cheese strudel, a parting gift from my friend Jeremy, a colleague at Downtown’s finest wine shop, Wines Off Wynkoop!
