A little while ago, we were contacted by a lovely lady called Kimberly who wanted to share her Plitvice Lakes travel vlog with us…and with you! We loved watching the vlog as it’s so upbeat, has lots of great tips for visiting Plitvice (as a day trip from Zagreb) and there’s some gorgeous scenes of the national park.
Check out the vlog here:
We also thought we’d ask Kimberly a few more questions about her travel experiences to see what else she thought of Plitvice and Croatia:
I noticed you were visiting the Park in August…peak season and big crowds! Unfortunately, you did have to endure quite a big queue to get into the park. What was that like?
Every time I will visit a new place, I always research the best time/month/season to go there, and August it is! So, I already have an idea that there will be a lot of people but I was shocked to see a massive count who are willing to wait under the scorching sun for almost 2 hours just to get in the park. This adds up MORE excitement actually, seeing something that you can only see in the internet or tv. We couldn’t just wait to get in!!!
Did you visit other places in Croatia (or in that region on Europe)? What were your highlights? (in Croatia, or overall on your trip?)
This is my first time in Croatia 💞 and actually I keep bidding for this flight. Praise the Lord I got it after 1.5 years. We are a cabin crew of an international airline, this explain our limited amount of time in the park and 24 hour stay in total in Croatia. We just landed on that same day in Zagreb and just change from our uniform to our OOTDs and straight to the 2 hour trip to Plitvice. I’m just so blessed to enjoy Gods creation.
What were your general thoughts on Plitvice?
Plitvice is breathtaking! Can’t wait to visit again during other seasons to enjoy the change of colours of the leaves during fall and the magnificent ice wonderland during winter.
Do you have a one ‘top tip’ for anyone visiting Plitvice? (Although you have plenty of tips in your video!)
Bring a lot of extra battery for your phones and cameras!!! 😂 Every corner have a striking photo zone but of course don’t forget to enjoy everything with your own eyes.
Please tell us a bit about yourself and your YouTube channel! How long have you been running it for? Do you feature mainly travel videos or all sorts?
The idea of vlogging came out when one day I felt super lonely that I’m away from my country since I’m working abroad. I’m already doing vlogs for 7months and enjoying it. I mainly publish travel vlogs since I visit a lot of different places, meet a lot of people everyday, and learn a lot of culture. I’m also hoping that I can help other people in their journey exploring foreign countries through watching my vlogs. 😊
Do you have any exciting travel plans for the future? (That you will blog?)
Since I’m in an aviation industry, every destination and everyday is an exciting day! Its always a surprise since we can only know what’s in store for us 7 days before every month will start. I cant wait what 2019 has to offer!
Thank you SO much, Kimberly, for sharing your lovely travel vlog and tips on visiting Plitvice with Visit Croatia! Wishing you very happy travels for 2019!
