NOTE: I’m publishing this blog post as draft and will update it at the end of each day. Check-in each day via social media or via this blog post for an update on daily adventures.
From September 2 through 9, I’ll be taking part in the Croatia Epic Week campaign sponsored by the Croatian National Tourist Board. During the course of 8 days, we’ll visit Zagreb, part of Istria, the Dalmatian coast, and few islands on Dalmatian coast.

Some additional foodie destinations that I would recommend that you visit during your Epic Week to Croatia include:
- Definitely spend more time in Istria, the Tuscany of Croatia. The food, wine, olive oil, truffles, and other Istrian specialties are outstanding.
