Paris and Croatia
Highlights and/or must see locations:
Hard to think of a more beautiful place for a ride...
Plitvice Lakes National Park
Croatia: I landed in Zagreb and spent a day exploring this small, pleasant city which has a wonderful central market and several interesting, small museums. Next, I rode out toward the coast to visit three national parks, including the stunning Plitvice Lakes National Park- a UNESCO World Heritage Site - not to be missed! The majority of the trip involved cycling down the lovely Dalmatian coast, from Split down through three of the beautiful islands- Brac, Hvar and Korcula.
Foundation Louis Vuitton, Paris
Paris: The building of the Louis Vuitton Foundation, started in 2006, is an art museum and cultural center sponsored by the group LVMH and its subsidiaries. It is run as a legally separate, nonprofit entity as part of LVMH's promotion of art and culture. The art museum opened in October 2014.
Tips and tricks for fellow travelers:
While in Dubrovnik, take a walk on the old wall in the late afternoon to catch the views at sunset, and to avoid the crowds.
Roll your pants before packing them to avoid creasing.
Croatia: The delicious seafood- centric cuisine and the local wines and olive oils were an added bonus to the spectacular scenery. I finished my tour in Dubrovnik, the “jewel of the Adriatic”.
Restaurant Les Enfants Rouges in Paris' 3rd arrondissement
Paris: Les Enfants Rouges in Paris receives amazing reviews and serves delicious market-fresh French cuisine.
Which Aviator products did you wear and were they helpful?
When not in my cycling shorts, my summer weight Aviator jeans and Air Dry merino t- shirts kept me comfortable and well turned out as I strolled, hiked, and hung out in cafes and restaurants in the evenings.
