Plitvice Lakes National Park, Croatia

The whole reason we ended up going to Europe for 3 months in the first place, was ignited by finding Plitvice Lakes National Park. Stumbling through Instagram and BOOM; there was Plitvice with all of its wild waterfalls and crystal blue lakes. After 10-hours, 4 countries, and 3 shitty trains, we rolled into Zagreb, Czech Republic and we were ready to grub out at the first spot we came across. We had been 2 months in, and we were really craving some sort of burgers to get a taste of home when we came across a really tasty burger spot not to far from the train station called, Rocket Burger. We spent that first day roaming around the city, walking though the markets and little shops that lined the alleyways.

The next day, we woke up early enough for the first bus up to Plitvice Lakes at 7am and were ready for 12 hours of awesomeness! 30 minutes into the 2-hour drive, you start going into the forest, across running rivers and miniature towns the line the tiny road out to the park. Walking in, you can’t help yourself but try and hustle your way down the dirt and wooden pathways that map out the park. In the distance, you can see the largest waterfall in the park and to the left of that across the lake is a giant cave. The park is made up of 16 lakes that are all connected by a ton of tiny rivers and waterfalls as well as a ferry that goes across the largest lake with a few different stops to get off of. Spending the whole day out there exploring and walking along the waterfalls felt crazy that there are places this amazing that exist, it made me want to adventure more of the natural wonders of the world.
