    Travel to Rovinj

    June 9 in Croatia

    Leaving Zagreb we once again catch the no 6 tram back to the bus stop to pick up the airport bus. We picked up the car with no hassles but to our surprise the tank was only quarter full. We head south east towards Rovinj. The roads are well maintained in fact better condition than Australia. The speed limit is 130 on most sections, there are cars flying past us doing at least 170ks, it’s ridiculous. So scary when they fly past you. It was not surprising when we heard an ambulance and traffic backed up a few kms down the road. A car had rolled, it was eerie seeing a car upside down, bikes still on the back doors flung open. But even this did not slow down many of the drivers.

    We stopped at the town of Karlovac for lunch. Suzie had shishkebab on flat bread and I had dumplings on flat bread. Not really what we expected, both meats were identical, just a different shape. It was like a sausage salami, quite tough and a flat bread roll. It also came with half a raw onion cut up in large chunks. Nothing else, no lettuce, tomato, nothing. Very heavy, not nice.

    Onward to Rovinj, cars are restricted from entering the old city, so we are met outside by Ivetta ( the air bnb host). She takes us to a church close y where she has a permit to park. From here we walk over rough uneven paths built by the Romans to our apartment right in the heart of the old city.

    Our Airbnb is a 2 level renovated apartment with everything you could want once again. What a beautiful part of the world, we wander around the old stones paths, dropping in on spots for a drink and an amazing view. Dinner is a seafood platter and grilled vegies. A little expensive but so good to have some vegetables at last. The night end with watching our first sunset over the Adriatic Sea.

    Bike trip around Rovinj

    June 10 in Croatia

    A relatively early start to the fresh markets for some fruit for brekkie. Everything is 30kuna ($7), I buy peaches, cranberries and raspberries. I’ve never had fresh cranberries before, always dehydrated. Brekkie is delicious yoghurt and fresh fruit, what more could you want. The craisins are a little tart but delicious . These will go well in the vodka later.

    Next stop we hire some bikes for the day, 70kuna each (approx $16). We head off through the old city before turning around and heading south west. Before we know it we are at little rocky beaches overlooking Ronivj. Our first stop is at a local beach overlooking Rovinj, it’s time for a quick drink before continuing on around the coast line. This is not as straight forward as it first seems, but eventually we end at a very rocky beach. Time for our first swim in the Adriatic Sea. The rocks are horrid , slippery and sharp but the water is awesome, a little crispness is just what we need.

    Lunch is an amazing array of 10 fried sardines and salad, a meal I will not forget in a long time - it was delicious. Back on the bikes we head further around the coast line until we hit the local caravan park. There are heaps of small secluded beaches along the way, but all are very rocky, no sandy beaches here. My overall impression here is women and men love their bodies, it doesn’t matter if you small or large a bikini or biggie smugglers will do. Well done, I wish we loved our bodies as much back home, embrace life,

    Time to head back to the town center, in fact the ride is probably under 30 minutes, time to have another swim from the rocks on the outer perimeter of the old city.

    The day ends with pizza and red wine, what more luck one need really.

    Meine Kamera schluchzt...

    Rovinj in Kroatien

    ... weil es in Rovinj wie aus Kübeln gießt. Okay, der Wetterbericht hat uns vorgewarnt: durchwachsenes Wetter mit gelegentlichen Schauern. Deshalb entscheiden wir uns für Sightseeing statt Strand. Als wir Richtung Rovinj talabwärts rollen, hängt bereits ein riesiger schwarzes Popel über der Stadt. Kurz nachdem wir das Auto verlassen, geht die Dusche an. Platzregen nennt man so etwas bei uns, nur das wir uns fast eine Stunde einen Unterstand mit anderen traurigen Gesichtern teilen. Der Spittelladen um die Ecke generiert mit Regencapes Umsatz für mehrere Wochen. Dann wird es etwas weniger und wir machen uns mit Schirm auf den Weg. Die Stadt ist wirklich so hübsch wie alle sagen, dass nehmen wir auch im Stemmschritt wahr. Romantische Gassen, lange Promenade, viele Eiscafes, wenig Leute weil immernoch reichlich Wasser von oben kommt. Ich habe mitlerweile den Schirm für mich alleine, weil ich Luisa mit diesem wortwörtlich auf die Palme (Dutt) gehe. Stadt gucken, Pfützen ausweichen und Schirm gerade halten ist anspruchsvoller als gedacht. Kurz nachdem wir aus dem Zentrum und auf dem Weg zum Auto sind, hört es doch noch auf zu regnen und die Nikon darf doch noch den Motiv-Klassiker auf dem Sensor ablichten.
