The Croatian language is quite funny at times when you are a German speaker. There are many words which originate in the German language but the spelling is Croatian. My favourite words were sendvic (Sandwich), švarzvald (Black Forest Gateau ... from the German word Schwarzwald) and bedinerica (house maid) and I really enjoyed learning new ones all the time.
Unfortunately I didn't know enough of the language to talk to waiters or people in shops. As they only spoke little English or German I failed quite badly trying sign language but I guess that's all "part of the experience"...
