Croatia Online’s 100,000th Hit – Missed!

Croatia Online - Trogir

I can’t believe it! There was a time, in the early days of blogging, when every 10th hit was a milestone to be celebrated, then every hundredth and then every thousandth. I was looking forward to a big celebration on the 100,000th hit and it passed me by somewhere between the 1st and 8th of November 2010. Very disappointing. We’ll be working on a way to celebrate properly but in the meantime, here are some links to early milestones:

Berlitz Croatia Pocket Guide

Croatia Online - Berlitz Croatia Pocket Guide


Plenty of explanations but no excuses for the long silence on Croatia Online. However we are up and running again but spreading our time between Croatia and Suffolk!

Today’s hot news was the arrival in the post of the new edition of the Berlitz Croatia Pocket Guide, updated by Croatia Online’s editor, Jane Cody. It’s the third edition of the Guide and all credit to Berlitz for being so painstaking in keeping it up to date – not so easy for a country moving as fast as Croatia!

Jane reports “Berlitz was an absolute pleasure to work with and it was a new discipline updating a guide, rather than starting from scratch as John and I did with the Croatia Cruising Companion. Where the Cruising Companion is very detailed and clearly geared to nautical visitors to Croatia, the Berlitz guide is an ideal place to start when planning a trip to the country. It’ll give you a real feel for the culture, history and best places to go and has some great tips and recommendations. It’s an absolute snip at £5.99.”
