Weather or not?

You packed things you’re sure you’ll need, but why don´t take a dozen of things that you think you will need, just in case something happened? One of the Croatian Proverbs says: Bolje nosit´ nego prosit! If we translate it in English it will say: Better to carry with you, then beg for it. So, what about an umbrella? Do you need to take it with you?

Short culture lesson
Did you know that Baška was named after Baščanska ploča (eng. Baška tablet)? Baška tablet is one of the most important monuments of Croatia´s culture and literacy because the name Croatians was mentioned for the first time in Croatian written language. The Baška tablet is probably the most famous monument of early Croatian literacy, dating from about 1100, i.e. almost four centuries before the discovery of America. It is discovered in 1851 in Church of St. Lucy in Jurandvor, near Baška.
What do you think, can you read it?
No worries. It is the first, but not last Croatian written language. Croat´s write in Latin!
