Parting is such sweet sorrow. It has been quite a ride. I’ve enjoyed every moment of it. Have a great life, people.
 
These pictures are some of my all-time favorites because of the memories they evoke. They were taken at the Plitvice Lakes National Park in Croatia. It’s one of the most beautiful places that I’ve seen or will ever see in this lifetime. In 1979, it was granted the UNESCO World Heritage status.

The park is situated in a deep woodland between mountains populated by varieties of trees and vegetation. It features 12 Upper lakes and four lower lakes inter-connected by waterfalls descending from as high as 2,085 feet. It’s also home to several species of birds and animals.

We arrived at our hotel in Plitvice by half past two in the afternoon. At our guide’s suggestion, we went to the park right after we checked in for the night to give us an opportunity to see the lakes and the waterfalls in the afternoon light. He added that they change to green, grey, or blue based on the direction of the sunlight.

When we went back to the park the following morning, we found that the colors of the waters had indeed changed. But I felt it did nothing to diminish the majesty of the place.

The park is truly a hiker’s paradise covering 185 square miles. It offers many trails that lead to hours of exploration. I’d never been in a place where my senses had been engaged all at once. Every scenery was breathtaking especially when viewed from the top.

After our morning hike, we drove for three hours across the mountains to Jablanac where we took the ferry to Rab Island.
