AN AUTUMN WALK IN ZAGREB
October 2015

I've flown in and out of Zagreb airport a number of times. I've taken buses out of and into Zagreb's main bus station, but until this October I confess I'd never actually visited Zagreb itself and spent time looking around the city.

Which has been my loss!

It was a short visit and dogged by the rain and wind that seem to have followed us everywhere we went in Croatia this autumn, but it was a good visit and one, if you'll pardon the pun, to whet the appetite for a return, hopefully some time in the not too distant future.

It also gave us the highlight of this visit to Croatia: the unforgettable day we spent being shown around the city.

So, many, many thanks to Davor and Iva for their hospitality and their good company: I haven't laughed so much in ages!
