Along The Way...
My mother is an adventurer! When I was growing up it was my mother who would take us to discover Antebellum homes and Civil War cemeteries. When we lived in Turkey she was up for the discovery of an unexcavated ruin, or shimmy-ing through underground tunnels. When we moved to Las Vegas she would take us on neighborhood home tours and then we'd go check out a new buffet on the Strip. She will take the road less traveled, she will pull over to "check it out." I learned to be curious from her.
One thing I love about Europe is that around every bend in the road there is something new to discover--a quaint village, a watering hole, or castle. One benefit of living there is the chance to stop along the way to explore. On our drive to Plitvice Lakes we passed through Zagreb, the capital of Croatia and a few other towns and villages I don't even know the names of. Zagreb is not a very big city and its highlights can be seen in an afternoon. The other places we stopped at were literally "hop out of the car for a few minutes" type visits.
