    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.

    Montenegro - Part 2

    November 3, 2018 in Croatia ⋅ ☁️ 68 °F

    More pics. Lunch at Cesarica
    375, Stari Grad, Kotor 85330, Montenegro

    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, 2018 in Croatia ⋅ ☀️ 66 °F

    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!

    Im Hafen von Dubrovnik

    May 10, 2018 in Croatia ⋅

    Mit dem Linienbus fahren wir zurück zum Kreuzfahrtterminal, was ein ganzes Stück weg liegt von der Altstadt. Pünktlich um eins, zur besten Mittagszeit sind wir zurück an Bord und stürzen uns hungrig aufs Buffet. Danach ist Zeit fürs Mittagsschläfchen und um 16 Uhr verlassen wir den Hafen von Dubrovnik wieder, natürlich mit dreimal tuten (das darf man in den italienischen Häfen wohl nicht).Read more

    Dubrovnik, Kroatien

    November 13, 2018 in Croatia ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    Die Nächte in Bosnien und Herzegowina sind wirklich sehr kalt, aber mit unseren neuen Schlafsäcken und der Tagesdecke ist es auszuhalten. Nach einem entspannten morgen verabschiedeten wir uns von Caroline und es ging weiter – wieder Richtung Kroatien, da wir noch heute Dubrovnik erreichen wollten.

    Diesmal hatten wir einen sehr lustigen Grenzübergang mit einem Grenzpolizisten der sich mehr für die aktuelle Temperatur als für uns interessierte. Zum Glück hat Freudolin ein Thermometer und wir konnten ihm sagen, dass es 17°C warm ist. Außerdem war ein bosnisches Fahrzeug unterwegs für den scheinbar keine roten Ampeln an Baustellen gelten. So fuhr er einfach an uns – natürlich an der roten Ampel wartend – vorbei und auch die folgende rote Ampel konnte ihn nicht aufhalten.

    In Dubrovnik haben wir uns einen Platz ein bisschen außerhalb gesucht um entspannt Blog schreiben und skypen zu können, jetzt wo es wieder mobile Daten gibt.

    Nach einem gelungenen Skype-Marathon mit unseren Liebsten konnten wir in dieser Nacht ganz besonders gut schlafen. Skypen ist wirklich eine gute Art um mit der Heimat zu kommunizieren und zu erfahren wie es den Daheimgeblieben so ergeht.

    Tag 65: Am nächsten Tag wollten wir uns aufmachen um Dubrovnik zu erkunden. Neben uns hatte sich noch abends ein weiterer Camper aus Frankreich gestellt deren Insassen wir dann am Morgen kennenlernten. Silva und sein Boxer Marvel wollen ebenfalls in einer längeren Reise den Balkan erkunden und über Italien zurückfahren. Nur hatte sich bei Silva ein kleines bzw. eventuell auch größeres Problem ergeben, denn er hatte seine Fahrzeugpapiere in Split verloren und konnte keine neuen erhalten. Deshalb wollte er einfach weiterhin versuchen die Grenzen zu passieren auch wenn er in Bosnien bereits erfolglos war. Wir drücken ihm hierfür auf jeden Fall die Daumen!

    Zu viert machten wir uns also an diesem Morgen auf den Weg um Dubrovnik zu erkunden. Nach einem 1-stündigen Spaziergang bei über 20 Grad erreichten wir die Stadtmauer der wunderschönen Altstadt und staunten nicht schlecht als wir die Weihnachtsdeko und den Weihnachtsbaum entdeckten, die gerade in der Stadt platziert wurden. Tatsächlich geht einem das Gefühl für die Jahreszeiten etwas verloren wenn es im November so warm ist!

    Wir haben wirklich entzückt von der verwinkelten Altstadt mit ihren vielen süßen und schmalen Gässchen, dem Hafen und den vielen Drehorten von Game of Thrones. Auf Anraten von Silva entschieden wir uns die Mauer doch zu besteigen, die einmal um die Altstadt herumführt. Der Eintritt von 20 Euro war zwar wirklich happig, aber der Blick auf die Stadt und auf der anderen Seite aufs Meer und die vorgelagerte Insel war dafür wirklich toll und hat sich gelohnt. Die Mauer an sich war auch spannend und wurde von Türmen an allen Ecken gesäumt.

    Anschließend gab es noch ein riesengroßes Schokoeis bevor wir uns die Festung Lovrijenac ansahen von der aus man ebenfalls einen tollen Ausblick hatte. Da Tobi bereits seit mittags über Knieschmerzen klagte, die sich immer weiter verstärkten, entschieden wir uns, uns auf den Rückweg zu machen.

    Wir kochten und verbrachten den Rest des Abends ganz gemütlich im Bus, damit Tobi sein Knie ausruhen konnte, dessen Schmerz sich bereits auf seinen Kreislauf ausgewirkt hatte. So sahen wir nur noch einen Film und gingen früh zu Bett.

    Tag 66: Da die Schmerzen leider auch am nächsten Tag noch nicht vergangen waren, entschieden wir noch einen Tag und eine Nacht auf demselben Platz zu bleiben und diesen auch ganz gemütlich hier zu verbringen.

    Während sich Tobi ausruhte, machte sich Leni auf um Wasser zu besorgen. Erste Anlaufstelle war der oberhalb gelegene, bereits geschlossene Campingplatz. Das erste Glücksgefühl wurde je geschmälert als sich herausstellte, dass das Wasser aus den Hahn wohl nur der letzte Rest aus den Leitungen war. Also ab zum nächsten Supermarkt. Zwar nicht auf dem schnellsten aber dafür sehr schön gelegen direkt am Strand entlang in Richtung Hafen.

    Weitere Aufgaben des Tages war einen ungefähren Routenplan für Montenegro zu erstellen, da es sich dabei wieder um ein Land außerhalb der EU und damit außerhalb der mobilen Daten handelt. Was uns dabei vor allem verwunderte war, dass diese dennoch den Euro besitzen und das die vorherige Währung die Deutsche Mark war :D

    Dubrovnik

    September 6, 2018 in Croatia ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Moin,

    Wir sitzen gerade beim windigen Frühstück.
    Gleich geht es in die Altstadt von Dubrovnik per Bustransfer.

    Gestern Abend könnten wir den Sonnenuntergang noch genießen, danach sind wir im Restaurant essen gewesen, Italienisch.

    Mal schauen, ob wir heute einen geeigneten Schnorchelspot finden und ob die Schlange für die Seilbahn noch allzu lang ist.

    Empfehlung des Tages:
    Carpaccio und Pecorino Käse

    Longa viagem

    September 7, 2018 in Croatia ⋅ ☀️ 25 °C

    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.

    Dubrovnik

    November 2, 2017 in Croatia ⋅

    one of our room mates went m.i.a and ended up in another room in a girls bed and the other guy brought another girl into our room and they spooned all night. Very odd. We were just thankful they didn't have sex 😂 we have heard some horror stories from other travelers about people simply not caring about privacy and just going for it ha. Thank heavens they didn't.
    Terrible sleep - it was so cold omg. They have a switch they had to stay on for the heating and some goose switched it off so the whole house was an icicle.

    We checked out at 10 and they let us leave our bags as we went to old town.

    Dubrovnik has so many stairs and hills it's insane!!!
    But yeah, the stairs are plentiful. You couldn't be handicapped here and yet funnily enough I have seen more people with canes than usual. They probably fell down the stairs. they aren't exactly even 😂

    Loss of puddings on our walk. )My new name for all the puddy cats 😻)

    Made it to old town gate after about a 30minute walk.

    The main gate is kinda cool but we figured it would probably be cheaper outside the wall than in so we went to the closest resturant.

    CHEAPER HAHAHAHA I PAID $6.50 FOR 220ml of Coke.
    that more expensive than the easter show. That is ridiculous!!

    We both had to get breakfast combos side that's all they had. Lucky they were delicious cause it was $20 each.
    The view was nice but we have realised the sun doesn't move and that's the problem. It doesn't go over the top but stays on the same side and just moves across the sky. So basically it is always in your eyes.

    We entered through the gate and I could immediately imagine Cersei walking around (game of thrones is filmed here mum)
    The walls were so high and it was clean.
    We walked around the city and we found the stairs where Cersei does her naked shame walk through the city. That's the only spot we found I know for sure what scene it belongs too but so many spots looked familiar or could have easily been used.
    We walked around the rocks/piers and the water is transparent- it's beautiful. You can see ever fish and leaf.

    One lady was using a drop line to fish which I think is cheating if you can see them but her 3 cats sitting next to her anxiously waiting probably disagree. I would guess she is quite successful - they are all really fat hahah

    There were a few different rock boardwalk type things I could envision scenes of too. Whether they were used in it or not in not sure - this city has a lot of space and options!

    So even though the price to get up onto the city walls is eye watering. A whopping $30 each - we decided to fork it up because it we didn't then I would feel like we didn't do it properly and have the need to come back.
    Exciting news: For once I actually feel I got my moneys worth.

    It's a one way circuit and I'd say all up 1.5km walk around the whole thing. Maybe even more.
    It starts with views of the fortress. I don't know what to say other than it was awesome.

    We climbed many stairs, turned many corners and took hundreds of photos between the 2 of us.

    All the roofs are the orange/ red.
    It's so obviously Kings landing.

    The entire wall is completely in tact and in perfect condition. IT IS SO COOL.

    Looking out to the ocean was also incredible.

    It wasn't too busy either which was super duper! Still a lot of people but not too many That i felt cramped.

    Some of the bells and statues/gargoyles around the place were so old and special.

    So many hidden corridors and streets.

    so many STAIRS. If I had to climb them to school everyday I would rage quit.
    We did go past one school whose classroom windows were open. I don't know how they get work down with thousands of people always walking past making noise.

    Considering how clear the water and easy to spot the fish we were surprised there were no birds other than pigeons (of course - world most common bird)

    Probably the coolest city we have been to medieval wise because it's intact and you can interact with it.

    I liked how obvious it was that this was people's home. Knickers and socks were out drying everywhere. 🙊

    At one stage I started feeling dizzy.
    I had been wearing My jumper to avoid having to carry it but I gave in and took it off - also skulled the rest of our water.

    The walls kept getting higher and higher and the view better and better.

    I enjoyed humming the opening theme song as we walked around haha :)

    We got to a fort lookout thing and climbed it. Asked a stranger to take a photo - they were old and didn't know the phone was a touch screen.. Must remember to ask young people. LOl it's a terrible photo too but still happy.
    I asked more people along our travels to Wills annoyance heheh

    We finished the wall circuit.
    Sweat everyyywhere.

    We then walked over to the Lovrjenac fortress which is included in our entry price.
    It's $10 to see the fortress alone which I don't think is worth it just by itself.

    We saw we think is a Kuna (weasel type thing) so that's exciting :)

    The fortress had a great lookout of the whole city inside the walls.

    It's also where Cersei has her big Westeross floor map I believe.
    She is so easy to see walking around here too.
    Just because the rock is so clean and crisp and the space is open.

    We learn that the palace we were at in Split yesterday is where Daenarys kept her dragons chained up. It's underneath though which we didn't realize we could go down into. Oh well.

    We went and got me a magnet that cost too much and then started our long walk home up one million stairs.

    We waited at the hostel an hour before walking down to the bus stop to hopefully post our box BUT NO ITS CLOSED AGAIN.
    I guess the box is coming to Bosnia..

    Waited for our bus and it's the first bus in ages that hasnt already been there waiting for people. It was late and Will was stressing lol.

    Now on tthe bus 2 hours into the journey - we have been through both borders.
    The bus has spare seats so we are serperated but it's our favorite bus company so far - Will fits 🎉🎉🎉🎉 and it has phone chargers. 👌🏻

    Arrived and got picked up by our hosts dad.
    " look for a man with a bicycle and a mustache" were our instructions. Lucky it's not a busy stop cause that could have been any number of people lol

    Found the dude and walked to our place. He stomped at a cat on the way - not impressed, it's going on his review!! Lol

    Our house is really lovely except the tv is too old and doesn't have a USB port. Oh well no Big Bang hahah

    The host eventually arrived and introduced himself and told us some stuff as we were talking a random Chinese lady came in 😂
    Eermmmm??? She thought it was a hostel hahah
    Wrong place lady.

    Very strange.

    We dumped our stuff and went to the supermarket which basically only sold snacks and sauces.

    Esperando el bus para Split

    August 17, 2015 in Croatia ⋅

    Esa nube negra gigante que se ve tras Richi viene hacia nosotros! El tiempo nos ha hecho cambiar de planes y eliminar de la ruta nuestra excursión en ferry a Korčula porque las previsiones decían que había probabilidad de tormentas y ya sabemos como se pone a llover en Croacia...

    Total, que la parte responsable de este viaje (Richi) ha decidido que lo mas seguro era el bus y allá que hemos ido a comprar un billete para Split (pasando por Bosnia). Ahora toca esperar, pero aunque llueve vamos a ir a ver el puerto de los ferrys antes de irnos de Dubrovnik - Ains, que penita, nos ha gustado mucho.Read more
