Commander declares mission a success. Zagreb, Croatia is cool. Swabie declares $2 beer is a good thing.
Here’s a size comparison of Croatia to Oregon. We spent most of our time on the coast. That region of Croatia is about the same length as the coast of Oregon, but much more mountainous. And warmer. And they don’t speak Oregonian.
