  • Day32

    Heading South, Henrike was a very nice host to us in her beautiful house in Érsekcsanád and gave us time to replace Silkes worn out chain in her garden.
    A result of the dinner before: Peppers can be really really spicy in the country of the peppers and even burn under the fingernails for days...

    After a cold bath in the Danube we went from stronghold to stronghold along the Hungarian-Serbian border greeting Hungarian soldiers with smiles and finally found a crossing to Serbia.
    In Serbia and later that day in Croatia people started to greet and wave us enthusiastically.

    We had an amazing stay at Tanjas & Ivans place in Osijek and there was no end of adventurous cycling stories (among other trips, the two of them cycled almost 2000km within 10 days in the Alps!). We are super grateful for your hospitality!

    Back in Serbia, we continued along the Danube and stopped by at the impressive fortress in Novi Sad for an extended afternoon nap in the sun. Since yesterday, we are in the aspiring city of Belgrade where we're going to spend a few days enjoying Cevapcici, Kajmak and Rakija - well-earned with 2045km on our clock now :)

  • Day28

    A cruise today to three islands off the coast of Dubrovnik - Koločep, Lopud and Sipan. All had beautiful beaches and historic remains. We spent most time at Lopud which had lovely restaurants and cafes all along the waterfront. We also got amazing views of Dubrovnik's Old Town from the boat. A taster for the next day's visit to the Old Town. Lunch was served on board - and drinks were provided. It was an enjoyable day.Read more

  • Day19

    Back in Croatia. Spending the night in Trogir just north of Split. Traffic was very intense, couldn't get the GPS to work properly and the GPS voice yelled all the street names at us in Croatian😡but finally found where we are staying.

  • Day27

    We are now in Croatia staying at Cavtat, a town about 20km south of Dubrovnik on the Adriatic Coast. The town is surrounded by a very pretty harbour that’s bordered by beaches with a backdrop of high green hills, the setting is lovely. There is a wide walkway bordered by palm trees that runs parallel to the sea. The water is a deep blue with patches of green near the edges where the pine trees are reflected. In that beautiful harbour are fishing boats, charter boats, ferries and just a few yachts almost as big as cruiseliners! Alan and I braved the water this afternoon for a swim....it was freezing. Once Rozzie saw the looks on our blue faces she opted out! Sitting now on our balcony looking out over the harbour - so peaceful. Tomorrow we are cruising 3 islands off the coast of Dubrovnik and the following day we will explore Dubrovnik.Read more

  • Day29

    Today we walked the wall of Old Town Dubrovnik - enjoyed every step - a little exaggeration, but it was a real pleasure to see and walk this city for the first time. You can't help but feel a sense of awe as you see the beauty of the old town. The white limestone streets, baroque buildings, the ancient city walls that protected its people for centuries, and the endless view of the Adriatic - certainly was worth the over-1000 steps to complete a circuit of this incredible city! We then strolled through the old town and had a delicious lunch at one of the many restaurants there. Caught the cable car up to top of mountain where we got a panoramic view of the walled city. Had to try some traditional Croation cake - twice!! Fabulous day. Tomorrow we pick up our hite car and hit the road to discover more of Croatia.Read more

  • Day21

    Left Zadar this morning and headed east over the mountains. Countryside became much greener with farming pastures and also rainforest. We have 2 nights up here to visit the World Heritage Plitvice National Park. Arrived about 2.30. Visited the Barac Caves. Croatia has thousands of caves. Amazing stalactites etc.

  • Day36

    What a lovely surprise when we arrived at Skradin - small but such a pretty little village. Our accommodation is worth a mention. Right in the middle of the town and spacious rooms with the hostess with the mostest! Monica greeted us as if we were family and gave us invaluable information for visiting Krka National Park which is on tomorrow's agenda. We are right where we needed to be to enter Krka National Park - you walk approximately 200 metres to get the boat that takes you to the first level of Krka NP. There are lots of choice for food in such a small town and there is a very relaxed feeling here - not the usual vying for business that we have experienced in other towns in Croatia.Read more

  • Day22

    Up at 6.00am- Early start today for our trip to Plicvite. The pictures just can't do justice to the magnificent splendour of this. There are layers/levels of lakes with waterfalls just cascading down at every level. To cover the park we hiked, bus, hiked, boat and then hiked again. All up it took us about 6 hours. So pleased we made an early start- cooler but also crowds of people by the time we finished. It was glorious!!Read more

  • Day23

    Left this morning to head west again to the coast. Travelled through some windy country roads with farms and rain forests. Every green and lush. Now on the Istria peninsular. Stopped for lunch at the Croatian riviera on the eastern side of the peninsular. Staying tonight on the western side in Pula. Pula has Roman ruins including a well preserved colosseum. It has quite an Italian feel to the area.Read more

  • Day34

    We took the scenic route to Pula which added a few hours to our trip but it was worth it. We saw some beautiful countryside and unexpected sights along the way. Al did a great job driving for about 5-6 hours, a lot of it on narrow winding roads.
    Pula is a seafront city on the tip of Croatia’s Istrian
    Peninsula, Pula has been occupied, destroyed and rebuilt numerous times.The city has a long tradition of winemaking, fishing, shipbuilding, and tourism. It has also been Istria's administrative centre since ancient Roman times. It has its own Roman Ampitheatre, Pula Arena, constructed between 27 BC – 68 AD, much of it still standing to this day. The Romans also supplied the city with a water supply and sewage systems. Driving the west coast of the Istrisn Peninsula tomorrow as well hopefully some inland towns and staying the night at Rijeka.Read more
