    Plitvice National Park

    July 8, 2017 in Croatia

    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.

    Plicvite national park

    July 9, 2017 in Croatia

    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

    Plitvice Lakes National Park

    July 9, 2017 in Croatia

    Plitvice Lakes National Park (Croatian: Nacionalni park Plitvička jezera) is one of the oldest national parks in Southeast Europe and the largest national park in Croatia. In 1979, Plitvice Lakes National Park was added to the UNESCO World Heritage register. It is known for a chain of 16 terraced lakes, joined by waterfalls, that extend into a limestone canyon. Walkways and hiking trails wind around and across the water, and an electric boat links the 12 upper and 4 lower lakes. The "Big waterfall" is Veliki Slap, 78m-high.
    I cannot describe Plitvice Lakes NP and do it justice. For the entire 6 hours we were there we were overwhelmed by its never-ending beauty. The photos will also not do it justice. Highlight of the trip so far!

    Grabovac near Plitvice Lakes NP

    July 8, 2017 in Croatia

    Our next desination was Grabovac where we would stay for two nights. It was about 11km from Entrance 1 Plitvice Lakes NP. We took the scenic route (on purpose) rather than a highway and so glad we did. We saw the landscape change from extremely high rocky mountains to flat empty fields to lush farmland. The temperature reached 37 degrees on the way to Grabovac and fortunately it got down to an almost bearable 34 degrees by the time we arrived. We headed to the Caves of Barać located near the village of Nova Kršlja in the municipality of Rakovica. In 1892 the caves were opened to visitors but subsequently abandoned and forgotten following World War II. In July 2004 the Upper Caves of Barać were reopened to visitors. Great tour. The temperature inside the cave was 9 degrees but we weren't complaining....until we got outside again!!! Another wonderful day.Read more

    Nationalpark Plitvicer Seen

    July 27 in Croatia

    Nur kurz die Sachen ausgepackt und gleich zum Baden gegangen.
    Nur 6 km von den Seen entfernt, aber keine Touristen mehr - ganz im Gegensatz zum Massentourismus im Nationalpark wo wir dann anschließend waren, aber erst Mal nur um uns zu orientieren.

    Šesta st. (2/2): Autocamp Korana

    September 6 in Croatia

    Nach dem Nationalpark-Besuch bezogen wir das erste Mal Quartier auf einem Campingplatz und hatten damit unsere erste richtige Dusche der Reise. 🚿
    Auch unsere Kleidung konnten wir das erste Mal waschen und zwischen den Bäumen gut trocknen lassen.
    Der Campingplatz war sehr schön, mit viel Platz zum nächsten Camper und vielen natürlichen Hügeln und kleinen Tälern.
    Bisher sind wir gut autark mit Hilfe unseres Solarladegeräts und der 12 Volt-Steckdose ausgekommen, aber die Powerbank komplett laden zu können war ein erleichterndes Gefühl. 🔌Read more

    Saturday in Dubrovnik

    September 9, 2017 in Croatia

    We arrived about 11am after an overnight night cruise through a thunder and lightning storm. The Old Town of Dubrovnik is a 15 minute bus ride from where the ship is docked. Den and I went in after lun h and wandered around. Interesting town with steps everywhere! We will return tomorrow to walk the walls. Back to the ship for dinner and the show. Hope the rain holds off tomorrow.

    Passport please!

    September 3, 2017 in Croatia

    Nachdem wir mega früh im Bett waren und geschlafen haben waren wir auch entsprechend früh wach. Nach einer Dusche und leckerem Frühstück machten wir uns parat und verliessen um 10:20 Uhr Villach.

    Der Stau vor dem Karawankentunnel hielt sich in Grenzen, so dass wir wenig Zeitverlust hatten. Nach einer Weile machten wir mal einen Fahrertausch und ich durfte auch mal fahren. Das Womo fährt sich echt schön, aber es ist natürlich schon was anderes als der normale PW.

    Als wir zur slowenisch-kroatischen Grenze kamen spurte ich dummerweise falsch ein und schwupps waren wir bei den LKWs und Bussen gelandet. Schon kam ein slowenischer Polizist zu laufen und ich erklärte ihm, dass ich aus Versehen die falsche Spur erwischt habe. Seine Antwort: Passport please!
    Nächster Stop, der kroatische Polizist. Er wollte meine Story nicht mal hören sondern sagte nur: Passport please!
    Keiiiiin Problem, sie liessen uns durch und nun sind wir auf einem schönen Campingplatz nahe der Plitvicer Seen, welche wir morgen erkunden gehen...

    November 27, 2016 in Croatia

    On our last day in Croatia we made our way towards the capital, Zagreb. Being a Sunday we hoped we may be able to park and explore the sights. The countryside we drove through was very different to that of the barren, mountainous coastal Croatia. Flat agricultural fields spread out either side and we saw ricks of hay and corn stalks piled high in cones outside houses.

    The quality of Zagreb's housing looked a lot better than in so many of the coastal cities we'd seen. There were no signs of crumbling plaster or damp on the high rise flats and as we approached the city centre, new looking blue trams zipped efficiently alongside the cars. Unfortunately all the parking we could see was either height limited multistorey garages or on street bays that were too short for the van. We were both feeling the effects of a cold and so we decided to give the walking tour a miss and say goodbye to Croatia.Read more
