March 6, 2016: Croatia via Instax

I spent eight days in Croatia!  It was my first time outside the United States other than brief stints in Mexico and Canada.  I traveled with my wife and her sister.  We had a blast.  Anyhow, the next few blog posts will feature my favorite shots from our adventures.  I'll start with the keepers from my Fujifilm Instax Wide 300 and my Lomography Lomo'Instant Wide.

(In case you're wondering, the visible light leaks on some photos occurred because I partially broke my Fujifilm Instax Wide 300.  On my second day in Split, I accidentally loaded a film cartridge backward and messed up the film ejection mechanism.  As a result, I was repeatedly forced to open the back of the camera to wiggle future cartridges into the correct position.)

We started our Croatian tour in Zagreb (the capital), but I was too busy getting digital shots there to take a break for some instant work.

I took my first instant shots in Zadar, a beautiful coastal town.  This striped structure caught my eye as I meandered the boardwalk at the edge of the old town.

Next, we visited Split.  I particularly enjoyed the narrow streets of the old town (once a Roman palace) and the wide promenade next to the harbor.

Then, Dubrovnik.  I've never watched Game of Thrones, but I thought it was a pretty sweet city regardless.  The island in a couple shots is named Lokrum.  We didn't get to visit because it's closed (supposedly) during the winter season.

Finally, we visited the coastal towns of Makarska and Omiลก on our way back to Zagreb for our flight home.

Welp, that's all for now.  I took so many digital photos that I'm going to release those a city at a time.  I'll intersperse more details about our trip, too.  Hopefully I'll finish Zagreb within the next couple weeks.
