Uh, the “band of merry media,” that is.
We’re 18 intrepid travel writers and photographers invited by Insight Vacations to experience the sights, sounds and savors of the Dalmatian Riviera, where Bosnia embraces Croatia along the eastern Adriatic Coast, and where once upon a time the Most Serene Republic of Venice flexed its maritime muscle.
For eight days, we’ll be touring in style aboard one of Insights’ sleek motor coaches — with business-class legroom seating, WIFI and plenty of bottled water — as our premium-escorted itinerary takes us to Sarajevo, Jablanika, Mostar and the Stari Most bridge, Split, Ston and the Great Wall of Croatia, the Pelješac Peninsula, Orebic, Korčula — where celebrated merchant globetrotter Marco Polo is rumored to have been born — and Dubrovnik, “paradise on earth,” according to George Bernard Shaw.
Along the way, we’ll eat our fair share of authentic regional dishes — like grilled ćevapi (minced meat sausages) and tufahija (walnut-stuffed poached apples) — and sample superlative wines, including Plavac Mali, a robust red, during a variety of delectable dining events; local historians will guide us through some of the region’s most incredible relics, including Roman Emperor Diocletian’s massive palace; and, we’ll spend restful nights in five-star hotels. Not too shabby for band members, right?

Now, can we get a Srećan Put or a Sretan Put before we get this show on the road?
