Reply Pete December 6 2011 thanks Kieron. We had so many photos and tried to think of a unique way to do a photo essay on a country. Reply Nicole December 5 2011 Your photography always amazes me guys. Stunning photos. If you had to choose one of the places or pictures as your favourite what would it be? I’d like to go to Croatia but it’s only be a very short hop on my way home to Australia. 🙂 Nicole recently posted..Wanting to Visit Japan thanks to… a Snowboarding Magazine? Reply Pete December 6 2011 Thanks Nicole, One of my favorite photos is the top one from Dubrovnik which Dalene took. Love the composition of the building and the mountain in the background. In terms of favorite places, Zagreb and Plitvice Lakes were mine. Let us know if you have any questions if you decide to make a stop in Croatia. 🙂 Reply Brian December 5 2011 Wow…you kids are turning into some serious photographers! Thanks for sharing…what a gorgeous place! Reply Pete December 6 2011 we’ve had to step up our game to compete with some serious photographers out there. Thanks Brian, we’re learning lots along the way and Croatia certainly is a great place to do it 🙂 Reply Alison December 5 2011 Beautiful work guys! You make me want to visit Croatia even more 🙂 Alison recently posted..Our Top Christmas Markets in Belgium and Germany Reply Pete December 6 2011 Thanks Alison. If you go during winter months there is hardly a tourist there, but we heard summer months is insane for people. We traded up the +40 weather for tranquility 😉 Reply Ayngelina December 5 2011 If only there were some way to make a living creating postcards! Reply Pete December 6 2011 I agree, most the pictures we see on other travel blog sites kick the images in the actual postcards ass Reply Erica December 5 2011 OMG these are SO GOOD. SO GOOOOOOOD. Erica recently posted..Photo Essay: Cartagena, Colombia Reply Pete December 6 2011 Thanks Erica, we love your photography so that means a lot coming from you 🙂 Reply DTravelsRound December 5 2011 I truly believe Croatia is one of the most photo-worthy destinations I have ever been to. I have hundreds of images from the country, and they all could be post cards! Great post. Reply Pete December 6 2011 Agreed, it was difficult to narrow down to 20. Cheers! Reply ElizabethJ_Bird December 5 2011 Great Photos. I was in Croatia this summer and loved it. I never made it to Pula though. I thought the coolest part of Split was how half the city is in the palace. Reply Pete December 6 2011 Split was indeed interesting especially how people’s flats would actually be in the ancient walls. Thanks! Reply Abi December 5 2011 Ooh…lovely. I especially like that last one. Reply Pete December 6 2011 Thanks Abi, it was one of faves too 🙂 Reply Mom December 5 2011 Oh my you guys..those are amazing photos. It makes me sad to think you’re not there anymore, to take more. Reply Pete December 6 2011 Thanks Mom 🙂 we miss it too, but there have so many new places that we have opportunity to make use of our camera 😉 Reply Nick December 5 2011 The Dubrovnik, steps down to the sea, shot is just amazing. You kids seem to continue the fun at will. Look forward to hearing more in due course. Besos as ever. N and M. x Reply Pete December 6 2011 Very kind words Nick. I’m sure you will hear from us very soon 😉 How’s the planning for our cycle tour coming along? Besos a sus tambien, P&D xx Reply Turtle December 5 2011 Great postcards! Could you also write some messages on the back for my family? 🙂 Reply Pete December 6 2011 Thanks Turtle, I have to now design a back 😉 Reply Teri December 5 2011 Wow – those are AWESOME! They look good enough to be on a postcard. (ha ha). 🙂 Teri recently posted..Wanted: a Source of Renewable (Creative) Energy Reply Pete December 6 2011 Thanks Ter! We think they look better than the postcards that were in the shops. Well some of them at least 😉 Reply Lisa December 5 2011 I love these, what a cool idea. Lisa recently posted..$10 Does a World of Good Reply Debbie - European Travelista December 6 2011 Oooh these are great! Croatia is very high on my list and these pictures are why. Debbie – European Travelista recently posted..My Travel ABC’s Reply Pete December 6 2011 I never expected it to be so photogenic. We had a very tough time choosing these. Thanks for the comment Debbie 🙂 Reply Nat December 6 2011 Beautiful, looks like a definite must. Reply Erin December 6 2011 Croatia is a beautiful part of the world isn’t it? Your photos have reminded me that we’d like to return (it has been 11 years since we were there). Erin recently posted..Photo of the Week: An Accidental Visit To A Thai Wat Reply Pete December 6 2011 It truly is. We never were expecting it to be, and it made it all the more special.

EatDalmatia recently posted..Restaurant Bonaca – Skradin Reply Dalene December 7 2011 Thanks to your beautiful homeland for being such a gracious (and gorgeous!) host! 🙂 Reply Phil December 6 2011 Holy crap! You really need to make these into postcards!! Phil recently posted..You Bring the Yam, I’ll Bring the Fire Reply Dalene December 7 2011 Haha! I think we just did? 🙂 Reply Sophie December 6 2011 Beautiful postcards, much prettier than the ones one buys. The little boat at Cavtat is my favourite. Sophie recently posted..Travel Bloggers Give Back Reply Dalene December 7 2011 That is in my top three too, the lighting was so great at that time. Reply Stephanie - The Travel Chica December 6 2011 I would buy this set of postcards at the airport on my way home 🙂 Stephanie – The Travel Chica recently posted..An Evening of Luxury in Buenos Aires Reply Pete December 9 2011 Thanks Stephanie. I wish we (and other bloggers) could market our photos for postcards. Most of the time I am disappointed with the images they actually use. Reply Amanda December 6 2011 Awesome photos as usual, guys!

And your photos are breathtakingly amazing. Jaw hitting floor. xo Reply Dalene December 7 2011 Thanks Joanie! Croatia is pretty amazing, even beyond the gorgeous coastline that most people just head straight for. Much to see there! xo Reply Ross December 6 2011 Croatia is a place I have always really wanted to go to in Europe. Fab idea to make your pics into postcards I really like that! I like the postcard of the castle by the seacliff in Dubrovnik. Is it a castle? Reply Dalene December 7 2011 Thanks Ross! I *think* it is a castle but I’m not entirely sure as we didn’t make it up there in our short few days in Dubrovnik, Reply Ross December 8 2011 It looks awesome! I want to visit it now! Reply cailin December 7 2011 aaaaaaahhhhhhhhh IWANTTOGOTHERERIGHTNOW! beautiful photos 🙂 cailin recently posted..Wales was a pleasant surprise Reply Dalene December 7 2011 Thanks CJ!

New business idea? 😛 Reply Pete December 9 2011 Thanks Christy. I swear picking the fonts was one of the most difficult parts of making these 🙂 Based on the comments, I need to find the twitter handle of a postcard company. Reply Jade Johnston - OurOyster.com December 8 2011 Gorgeous!! I need to learn how to get out of auto on my camera! ACK Reply Pete December 9 2011 Thanks Jade. Yes definitely get off the auto 🙂 Have you checked out Beers and Beans e-book? http://beersandbeans.com/getting-out-of-auto-ebook/ We have heard nothing but amazing reviews. Reply Jade Johnston - OurOyster.com December 9 2011 I actually bought that e book! Now – to crack it open!! And then the hardest part – practice what I have read about! And somehow I have the fit that into working on the website (full time job), looking for a full time job (full time job), and my actual job (part time job) ahhh I need longer days and a home espresso maker! Reply Cherina December 9 2011 Stunning photos guys! I had forgotten how picturesque Croatia is. Love the postcard idea too. Cherina recently posted..Arctic Dreams: The Polar Bears of Churchill.

Reply Kristen J. - Hopscotch the Globe June 27 2012 These shots are stunning! Makes me want to! Did you travel there on a budget? Reply Dalene June 28 2012 Well, we are always on a budget (sort of). We didn’t splurge for sure, and Croatia (except Dubrovnik) is cheaper then the rest of Europe. Reply Julika November 23 2012 Wow, these are simply amazing! I bet you could even sell them to the Croatian tourist board and have them make actual postcards out of your photos 🙂 Next time I’m in Croatia, I will definitely check out Dubrovnik and Split – they look gorgeous!
