    Awesome pictures as always and a cool idea to transform them into postcards! Impossible to pick just one favorite!

      thanks Kieron. We had so many photos and tried to think of a unique way to do a photo essay on a country.

  • December 5 2011

    Your photography always amazes me guys. Stunning photos.

    If you had to choose one of the places or pictures as your favourite what would it be? I’d like to go to Croatia but it’s only be a very short hop on my way home to Australia. :)

      Thanks Nicole, One of my favorite photos is the top one from Dubrovnik which Dalene took. Love the composition of the building and the mountain in the background. In terms of favorite places, Zagreb and Plitvice Lakes were mine.

      Let us know if you have any questions if you decide to make a stop in Croatia. :)

  • December 5 2011

    Wow…you kids are turning into some serious photographers! Thanks for sharing…what a gorgeous place!

      we’ve had to step up our game to compete with some serious photographers out there. Thanks Brian, we’re learning lots along the way and Croatia certainly is a great place to do it :)

  • December 5 2011

    The Dubrovnik, steps down to the sea, shot is just amazing. You kids seem to continue the fun at will. Look forward to hearing more in due course.

    Besos as ever.

      Thanks Alison. If you go during winter months there is hardly a tourist there, but we heard summer months is insane for people. We traded up the +40 weather for tranquility ;)

  • December 5 2011

    If only there were some way to make a living creating postcards!

    • Pete
      December 6 2011

      I agree, most the pictures we see on other travel blog sites kick the images in the actual postcards ass

  • December 5 2011

    OMG these are SO GOOD. SO GOOOOOOOD.

      Thanks Erica, we love your photography so that means a lot coming from you :)

  • December 5 2011

    I truly believe Croatia is one of the most photo-worthy destinations I have ever been to. I have hundreds of images from the country, and they all could be post cards! Great post.

      Agreed, it was difficult to narrow down to 20. Cheers!

  • December 5 2011

    Great Photos. I was in Croatia this summer and loved it. I never made it to Pula though. I thought the coolest part of Split was how half the city is in the palace.

      Split was indeed interesting especially how people’s flats would actually be in the ancient walls. Thanks!

    Oh my you guys..those are amazing photos. It makes me sad to think you’re not there anymore, to take more.

    • Pete
      December 6 2011

      Thanks Mom :) we miss it too, but there have so many new places that we have opportunity to make use of our camera ;)

  • December 5 2011

    Great postcards! Could you also write some messages on the back for my family? :)

    • Pete
      December 6 2011

      Thanks Turtle, I have to now design a back ;)

  • December 5 2011

    Wow – those are AWESOME! They look good enough to be on a postcard. (ha ha). :)

      Thanks Ter! We think they look better than the postcards that were in the shops. Well some of them at least ;)

  • December 5 2011

    I love these, what a cool idea.

    Croatia is a beautiful part of the world isn’t it? Your photos have reminded me that we’d like to return (it has been 11 years since we were there).

      It truly is. We never were expecting it to be, and it made it all the more special. We have already started planning our return trip.

  • December 6 2011

    Great postcards! Looks like postcards I would buy! Keep it up! I want to see more please!! :)

    Beautiful postcards, much prettier than the ones one buys. The little boat at Cavtat is my favourite.

      That is in my top three too, the lighting was so great at that time.

  • I would buy this set of postcards at the airport on my way home :-)

      Thanks Stephanie. I wish we (and other bloggers) could market our photos for postcards. Most of the time I am disappointed with the images they actually use.

  • December 6 2011

    Awesome photos as usual, guys! And fun idea turning them into postcards!

    Croatia is a place I have always really wanted to go to in Europe. Fab idea to make your pics into postcards I really like that! I like the postcard of the castle by the seacliff in Dubrovnik. Is it a castle?
    Ross recently posted..Being Vegetarian in China

    • December 7 2011

      Thanks Ross! I *think* it is a castle but I’m not entirely sure as we didn’t make it up there in our short few days in Dubrovnik,

  • December 6 2011

    You were right. These pictures are amazing. Thanks for sharing.

    WHOA! First of all, I never would have guessed that Croatia was so stunning. And your photos are breathtakingly amazing. Jaw hitting floor. xo

    • December 7 2011

      Thanks Joanie! Croatia is pretty amazing, even beyond the gorgeous coastline that most people just head straight for. Much to see there! xo

    I can’t even pick a favorite! I love the postcard idea, and the fonts you chose are perfect – they really do look like postcards. New business idea? :P

      Thanks Christy. I swear picking the fonts was one of the most difficult parts of making these :) Based on the comments, I need to find the twitter handle of a postcard company.

  • Gorgeous!! I need to learn how to get out of auto on my camera! ACK

  • February 22 2012

    These pictures are amazing. Split is my favorite and I wanna go there right now! You should definitely make these into postcards. I’d buy it!

  • March 15 2012

    Great photos! I never think of Croatia and palm trees together.

  • These shots are stunning! Makes me want to! Did you travel there on a budget?

    • June 28 2012

      Well, we are always on a budget (sort of). We didn’t splurge for sure, and Croatia (except Dubrovnik) is cheaper then the rest of Europe.

  • November 23 2012

    Wow, these are simply amazing! I bet you could even sell them to the Croatian tourist board and have them make actual postcards out of your photos :)
    Next time I’m in Croatia, I will definitely check out Dubrovnik and Split – they look gorgeous!
