    Insel Krk

    August 21 in Croatia

    Nach dem Aufenthalt in Pula sehnen wir uns nach noch mehr Meer. 🏝 Daher gehts weiter Richtung Süden zur Insel Krk. Krk ist eine grosse kroatische Insel in der nördlichen Adria. Sie ist mit einer langen Brücke mit dem Festland verbunden. Auf der Insel leben rund 18'000 Menschen. In der Hauptsaison sind es über 100'000! Das merken wir auch auf dem Camping, trotzdem haben wir noch den letzten Platz ergattert. Im kristallklaren Wasser können wir uns abkühlen und an den Kiestränden sonnen. ☀ Natürlich halten wir uns auch während unseren Ferien fit und spielen fleissig Federball 🏸. Ist im Wasser jedoch gar nicht so einfach. Unsere Weiterreise geht entlang der Küstenstrassen Kroatiens. Später fahren wir über "Passstrassen" ins Landesinnere 🇭🇷.Read more

    Pazin & Novi Vinodolski car park

    October 30, 2016 in Croatia

    Going to the restaurant with the sole intent of paying up for our stay, we finally managed to hand over the 150 kuna we owed, before filling up, emptying and starting out.

    Pazin gorge is said to have prompted Dante's description of the gateway to Hell in his Inferno. The castle, teetering on the edge of the sheer drop into the chasm, is said to be that which Jules Verne's character Matthias Sandorf jumped from and swam along the subterranean river to the coast. While this fictional feat wouldn't be possible, we could certainly see why the gorge inspired such dramatic descriptions. It was difficult to make clear the scale in the photographs, but it was huge. We'd visited with the intent of walking down and through the gorge but unfortunately the trail was closed because frequent flooding had washed away some of the path and bridge. There was however a walk down to a viewpoint from where you could see through the trees to where the river disappeared underground with the limestone cave arching over it.

    There are a lot of homes in Croatia with beautiful looking facades but Vicky has fallen in love with the ones that look slightly neglected and the abandoned ones, of which there are many.

    Returning to the van, we saw people taking a lot of interest in it. Just as we were pulling away, Vicky looked in the wing mirror and was left speechless at the sight of a 10cm spider perched on top. After seeing that huge worm and Will having told her that morning about semi-transparent scorpian like creatures in the toilet emptying hole, she fully believed the spider was real. Upon closer inspection however, it turned out to be a plastic one some joker had placed on there. If they were watching for a reaction they wouldn't have been disappointed!

    Leaving the region of Istria and entering the Kvarner Gulf to head south along the coast, the road climbed and climbed. It wound its way up through beautiful beech woodlands, their copper and yellow leaves aglow in the afternoon sunlight. As our route reached its highest point on Mount Ucka, more than 1000m up, we crested the ridge and through the trees the wide expanse of the Adriatic and its spread of islands was revealed to us. It was a stunning sight.

    The city of Rijeka took over the largest cove, its white buildings spreading out far in all directions. Passing through and escaping the concentrated urban atmosphere we started on the coast road we plan to follow to the southern tip of Croatia. The bright blue sea, islands and coves, many with terracotta topped towns nestled in them were an amazing sight. We found a gravel car park to stop in overnight and photographed the sun setting over the Krk island.

    Arrived in Croatia at the Adriatic Sea

    September 24, 2016 in Croatia

    Deutsche Version auf www.cyclingfornepal.com

    Six days ago, I started my journey alone again. My next big goal was Trieste/Italy on the Mediterranean Sea. First I wanted to make a few kilometers and had decided on a route with less uphills. So it took me about 600 km and 4000 meters of climbing to get to Rijeka/Croatia. My path went to Switzerland, back to Austria and several days through Italy. During my trip through Italy I cracked the 1000 km mark since my start in Munich. Yeah!

    At the Italian city of Trieste, which lies on the border to Slovenia, I visited a campground for the first time. There were also two cyclists from England and Lukas from Germany, who has hiked in 1.5 months the Alp Adria Trail. After the days where I was traveling alone, talking to somebody felt pretty good.

    When I camped in the outback, I found super nice places and it was no problem at all. Only in one night I had lain down without my sleeping bag in a park. Half asleep, I heard the collar of a dog strum. I straightened up and a Husky was 10 meters away from me. At first, we both did not know who was afraid of whom. But the Husky turned out to be very peaceful.

    Yesterday I set out in the pouring rain in Trieste/ Italy. Before me were laying 60 km through Slovenia and remaining 20 km to the Mediterranean in Croatia. My mood was good until I changed money at the Croatian border and the total mishap happened. I had forgotten to close my handlebar bag with all my electronics and after a short storm, the bag was completely under water. Fortunately, everything is still working.

     Now I am at a campsite right by the sea. Unfortunately the weather is rainy and the prognosis is not better.

    Today, I will only take a short stage and again consult a campsite to plan my further directions.

    So far, my trip is great fun and it runs just as I imagine it. Only the feeling not seeing my family and friends, is still in my mind.

     Cheers Janosch

    Hum: The Smallest Town in the World

    August 10, 2017 in Croatia

    Randy got a Croatian welcome as we left the ship for our tour. Hum dates back to 10th century and today has a population of 30 residents.

    After walking the entire town (it took 20 minutes) we went to the only restaurant. We sampled local cheeses, wines👎, and a brandy made from mistletoe which was similar to grappa.

    Chillen ohne Ende auf einer schönen Insel. Super Campingplatz mit privater Golfkart-Tour über den Platz 😎 wir waren im Meer baden leider ohne richtigen Strand aber mit betoniertem Rand sodass man auch nicht auf steinen liegen musste :) trotzdem spitze und sehr erfrisched. Die wunderschöne Altstadt haben wir auch einmal mittags und abends besucht. Beides sehr schön 😍
    Danach hieß es. chillen in campingstuhl oder Hängematte 😎Read more

    Rab

    August 21 in Croatia

    Auf dem Campingplatz angekommen mussten wir erstmal wieder lesen und danach im Meer schwimmen. Am frühen Abend haben wir einen Spaziergang rüber in den Stadtkern unternommen. Eine wunderschöne Altstadt die mit ihren vier Türmen nicht ganz an Lübecks sieben rankommt 🤪 Wir haben gebummelt, geschwitzt und nach einem sehr frech fiesen Restaurantversuch auch noch ein wunderbares Restaurant gefunden mit Plätzen auf den Stufen einer niedlichen Seitengasse..Read more

  • Day8

    Eine lange Tour mit vielen versteckten Buchten im Nationalpark! Wir sind natürlich gewandert! Offensichtlich gab es aber auch Bootstouren von Rab aus... An der ersten Bucht angekommen war das Wasser spektakulär klar! Danach ging es weiter durch den Wald und zur nächsten von insgesamt vier. Da mussten wir auch erstmal zur erfrischung baden... Genauso wie in der letzten. Die geliehene GoPro kam auch zum Einsatz. Mehr Fotos dann zu Hause...Read more

    1. Campingplatz in Kroatien

    August 18 in Croatia

    Nach einigen hin und her und gelese haben wir festgestellt dass es viele FKK Campingplätze gibt 🤨🧐🙄 und das wir dafür weniger Begeisterung zeigen...
    Dann haben wir aber diesen Campingplatz gefunden, wurden losgeschickt uns einen freien Platz suchen, wir haben sogar noch einen Plaz genau für den Caddy geschaffen gefunden. Dann haben wir eingecheckt, sind an den Mini Strand der zum Campingplatz gehört und komplett voll mit Leuten war 😅 nachdem wir uns einen Weg bis zum wasser gebahnt hatten waren wir schwimmen. Beim anschließenden Duschen haben wir, ähnlich verwirrt wie alle anderen festgestellt dass die duschen (mit duschvorhang) gemischte duschen sind... kein problem an sich aber es hat allseits für verwirrung gesorgt... Danach sind wir nochmal an den Strand und konnten die Beleuchtete Stadt gegenüber sehen.Read more

    Vojak

    August 19 in Croatia

    Eine Abkürzung hier, ein Schlenker da.. nur der Beschilderung zu folgen reicht auch nicht immer! Hoch zu Istriens höchster Erhebung mit Blick zurück zu den Julischen Alpen und nach vorn zu den Inseln und Norddalmatien hätten wir lieber den Wanderführer geglaubt und nicht den Schildern. Etwas steiler aber schneller 😄
