Croatia'? Is it the Serbian war back in the 90's? Bosnia-Herzegovina? Or plain blank? For me, it's just the war. That's about it. You hardly hear about the country in the news nowadays.
Well, the name cropped up again 2 days ago when the handsome and talented Monsieur Cedric asked if I'd like to see some of the pictures he has taken of his trip. Of course my answer was an overexcited YEEeeSssS! With minimal pleading, he has given permission for me to post some shots on the blog.
So boys and girls, I present to you...Lastovo and Dubrovnik from Croatia.

Gorgeous, isn't it? I always believe in sharing travel pictures with friends, coz it is the next best thing to visiting the place yourself. And sharing is always a good thing anyway.
If you have enjoyed the pictures, then be polite and say, "Terima Kasih, Cedric!". Yeah, this French fry speaks Malay too. Ha. Talented or what?
