Since the fares from Alaska to Croatia are really good right now, I reached out to Steve for a report.

Mason and his wife Teri just got back after spending the month of May in Croatia.

“We flew into Split and spent two weeks sailing through the islands. Unbelievable. There was no one there. The marinas were full of charter boats,” he said.

“Afterwards, we rented a car in Split and drove to Dubrovnik—about 3.5 hours south along the coast. These walled cities are unbelievable. They’re like mini-Rome,” he said.

“COVID-wise, people were wearing masks indoors. But most of the dining is outdoors because of the Mediterranean climate. And there were no masks outdoors.”

Mason is a professional photographer who travels the world, seeking out just the right images for his clients. “I look forward to spending more time here,” he said.
