    Wandered the streets - this is definitely a town to come visit. Wish we would have had the time to climb up to the fortress at the top of the hill. That would have made for a great view. This little town is alive with cats. Love the pic of all the cats sleeping on the park bench together. Priceless. The tour guide was great - spoke superb English. Got her degree in tourism and hospitality from the college in town.

    So we had about 3 hrs in Kotor and then had to head back. Dropped into a pastry shop for a roll of some sort that had poppy seed filling in it. It was different - maybe those poppy seeds were fixed with figs? Almost tasted like it. Seemed like the ride back was shorter - minimal hang up at the border. Nice sunset on the way in to the hotel in Dubrovnik. Once back at the hotel, we spent some time talking with new friends about all the TV series we both watch. We obviously have similar tastes! Went up to the room, packed, and then decided it was time for some more food. It appears I’m catching a cold (of course), so decided a burger, soup, beer, and chocolate cake was just the ticket. And it was delicious! Trying to burn up those Croatian kunas. One more night in Vodice and then we’re on to Slovenia where they use the Euro.

    Dubrovnik

    November 2 in Croatia

    City Walk at 8:30 this morning. Staying a short distance from the old town at Hotel Lacroma. (https://www.valamar.com/en/hotels-dubrovnik/valamar-lacroma-dubrovnik-hotel ) Got up for a humongous buffet breakfast and then took the bus to the city gates for our tour. Met by a big dude who was a fount of information about Dubrovnik. He was a soldier during the war (when he was around 22). Talked about the Serbs on the hill above Dubrovnik firing some 600+ missiles into the old town, doing all kinds of damage. Will post more pics as soon as they find their way to the Cloud and back onto my iPad which is easier to type on than my phone. Well some hours later and pics are still not going to the cloud and downloading back to my iPad, so I will plunge forth with some more details, and post the pics from my phone. After walking the entire wall around the old town, we went exploring. Stumbled into a Bosnian restaurant to eat some lunch, looked at the prices on the menu and said, “nope, we’re not paying $80 for lunch”, so went a bit further and stumbled onto a little hole in the wall that served me up a monstrous burger and fries and Janet some fried calamari (she could live on that stuff alone!). Had another nice Croatian beer. Another couple sat down next to us, so we struck up a conversation with them (in all of our travels, I have found this necessary - rarely does someone start a conversation with you, so I just go for it) and it turns out he is an ENT doc and she is a graphic designer who live in Eugene, Oregon (which they love and who wouldn’t?). Of course I had to pounce on him and ask him a question about my tinnitus to which he briefly said - good luck and cross your fingers it goes away. Not too surprised at that answer! They were driving all over but started asking me about river cruising, as they were getting older. Gave my AAA pitch - apparently he works next door to AAA, so maybe they’ll get some business!

    After lunch, strolled around some more, taking lots of pics, until we decided to go find the ice cream shop the guide talked about, but then I - throwing diabetic caution to the wind, decided to embark on some dessert crepes. Wow, delicious, but was surprised I didn’t start having the shakes!! Janet had some salted peanut ice cream, which was delicious. Decided we had better walk some more, so headed out, but after awhile, decided we’d better catch the bus back to the hotel. Jumped on the #6 bus and stumbled into a few other Gate1 folks, so we all managed to get out at the right bus stop. Got back to the hotel and then spent the next few hours with Sarah and Mignon drinking some wine in the hotel bar and amusing them with some of our outrageous stories of our crazy past. Doesn’t look good on a resume, but makes for great stories! LOL

    Finally went to bed!

    Longa viagem

    September 7 in Croatia

    Sexta-feira, dia de trabalho, começámos bem o dia, tinha uma missão simples que era deixar as minhas chaves no correio da casa da Filipa, mas enganei-me na caixa de correio e só dei conta já estava a caminho do trabalho. O resto do dia foi a pensar como iria tirar as chaves de lá se ninguém respondesse a campainha. Fita cola? Iman? O braço de uma criança? Felizmente, tudo ficou resolvido ao final do dia, morava lá alguém e já tinham trazido a chave para casa.
    O voo era às 22h, uma hora de atraso no voo, pelos vistos muito recorrente em Lisboa.
    Mais 5 horas de espera em Barcelona, com duas cervejas e uma toalha de praia no chão, deu para fazer um cesta entre as 3 e as 4 da manhã.
    Chegámos a Dubrovnik às 8h, com uma surpresa, mais 2h de espera na Sixt para levantar o carro, pelos vistos toda gente alugou o carro nesta companhia, todas as outras estavam vazias.
    Com esta noite agitada depois de um dia de trabalho, conduzimos rumo a Dubrovnik, aproveitando para parar e aproveitar a vista no ponto mais alto, à chegada do cable car, com uma vista brutal sobre a cidade.
    A próxima paragem foi as 13h, à frente da casa que alugamos, para fazer uma cesta de uma hora no parque de estacionamento, à espera do tipo do airbnb, para estarmos frescos para começar o dia.

    Low Batteries

    August 14, 2016 in Croatia

    Vacsora borozas Alvas reggeli strand és rengeteg olvasás vacsora borozas. Nagyjából ennyi az elmúlt 2 nap történése. Kinga napközben még kap egy szabadonválasztott jégkrémet, Erik pedig egy presszókávét :-) Hétvégi Dubrovniki városnézést jobb kihagyni, így az holnap délelőtti progi lesz :-) 500 mes körzetben mozgunk. De a lépésszámláló kiakadt mert a hotel egy labirintus. :-) tegnap reggel háromszor tévedtünk el. Amúgy pedig mindenki nagyon kedves, fantasztikus az idő, tiszta a tenger (Copacabana Beach). Esténként mindig valami koncert van, pechünkre kb a teraszunk mellett, zs kategóriás fellépőkkel:-) De amúgy boldogság van. Egy negatívum: a szunyogok nagyom éhesek.fotók: a hotel medence, a vacsi és a staff, a parkra néző terasz, és a partRead more

    Az út

    August 12, 2016 in Croatia

    Reggel gyors reggeli, pakolás és elindultunk a városon kívüli autónkért. Egy pillanatban Erik felkiált itt a Kertész Miki. Bemutatkozás majd közli Miki, hogy Kinga, Veszprém, Lovassy, Cimbora kocsma :-) kiderült h ő az a Kertész Miki akivel kb 16 éve együtt tengettük fiatal estéinker a Cimbiben. Egyszerre volt vicces és megdöbbentő mennyire kicsi a világ. Ugyanis Miki Erikék konyhatechnológia szállítója. :-) nem ismertem volna meg, hiába, 16 év sok.
    Na ezután a vicces találkozás után nekiindultunk a hosszú útnak. Útközben Eriket a jövendőbeli szállodánkról szóló értékelésekkel szórakoztattam és minél többet olvastam annál bizonytalanabb lettem hogy jó választás volt e a hotel. Igazi ipari szálloda képe rajzolódott ki előttünk aminek egyetlen pozitívuma az étterme és a vacsora. Erik már pedzehette mennyi ott egy vacsi, nem fizetjük be magunkat oda. Ahogy ezt kutattam kiderült hogy félpanziós a szállás 😂. Az út hátralévő részén azon poénkodtjnk és gyárottunk forgatókönyveket h akkor mi a csudát csinálunk a beváltott kunákkal.
    Na de elékeztünk az út Neretva völgyi szakaszához. Azt hiszem ehhez fogható gyönyörű tájat életemben nem láttam. Meg is beszéltük, hogy nem véletlen h itt forgattak rengeteg filmet, fantasyt. Érintrtlen gyönyörű végtelen táj.
    Nagyjából 8 óra út után elértük a szállást, ami valóban ipari, de ezt a vacsorán kívül nem érzékeltük. Teraszos kis szobánk egy gyönyörű parkra néz, van medence, a tenger 3 perc sétára. A vacsi pedig nem a kötelező minimál, chefek sütötték frissen a lazacot és más húsféléket, önmagában a halak vagy saláták kiérdemeltek egy egy külön pultot. Elsőosztályú. Csak hát sok ember... Tangóharmonikás zenekar, cirkusz a népnek. Úgyhogy jóllakottan feloldalogtunk a szobába, hogy a teraszon ismét borozzunk egy kellemeset. Reggeli után irány a tenger, Dubrovnik felfedezése még azt hiszem váratni fog magára muszáj kiheverni ezt az utat. De végülis ráérünk. Fotok az utolsó reggeliről Piranban, és a tenger mellrtt vezető útról.
