Your Next Wellness Escape: Losinj, Croatia
By Ann Abel
I spent my first couple of days on the north Adriatic island of Losinj trying to figure out how to pronounce it. My Croatian hosts said things that sounded almost like familiar words. Lotion? Lozenge? I never did quite master it.
No matter. My mispronunciations worked for me. Lotion, lozenge, Losinj: All are meant to soothe and heal.
If you’re still with me, I assume you know about the first two. The last is possibly new. Popular among Slavic and German-speaking Europeans, Losinj is under the radar for much of the world. Which makes it all the more healing and appealing.
