Croatia Calling…

Croatia has been Stubborn Mule’s stand-out success story of summer 2021. Guaranteed sunshine, outdoor activities galore, and picture-perfect medieval towns all combine for a tip-top family holiday. We’ve been thrilled to see all the on-tour pictures rolling in. They provide a wonderful reminder of what an amazing (and therapeutic) experience a family holiday can be. Here are some of our favourite snaps collected together to make a ‘Croatia in Photos’ blog post. Enjoy!

Croatia in photos Summer 2021

Travelling in summer 2021 has not been for the faint-hearted. There’s no getting away from the fact that the regulations have been onerous. But for those who’ve taken the plunge, it’s been so rewarding. Time spent together as a family doing something fun rather than bickering over who has spent too long on a screen.
