Gail and I had a very enjoyable tour of Croatia. We enjoyed all of the people that were with us .... maybe 28 people was more than usual but it did workout! John and Theresa were the usual great hosts, unfortunately John was bothered with a bad cold for much of the tour. And yes, I also contracted a bad cold plus periodically had problems with my hip. Hopefully I did keep up to the group most of the time!It was a very exciting trip. The hotels were top notch, we enjoyed Dushka very much, a very enjoyable coach driver, the food was good, and choices of visits were well chosen. You are to be complemented for your hard work and planning to making the Croatian trip such a success.B & G | Croatia
