Am nächsten Morgen fahren wir um neun Uhr mit einem Shuttlebus vom Campingplatz die fünf Kilometer zum Parkeingang. Dort schaffen wir es ganz vorne in die Schlange, aber dennoch tut sich minutenlang nichts bis irgendwann die Information zu uns durchdringt, dass es vor 11 Uhr keinen Einlass an diesem Eingang geben wird. Währenddessen werden allerdings die asiatischen Reisegruppen (vermutlich mit vorgebuchten Tickets) im Sekundentakt links an uns vorbeigeschleust. Man sagt uns allerdings, dass es am anderen Eingang noch Einlass gebe. Und so teilen wir uns mit ein paar anderen Gästen aus der Warteschlange ein Gruppentaxi zum Eingang zwei, wo man tatsächlich problemlos eingelassen wird. Müssen wir nicht verstehen, haben wir auch bis heute nicht. Möglicherweise liegt es daran, dass Teile des Parks nach den heftigen Regenfällen der letzten Wochen gesperrt sind, allerdings ist diese Maßnahme de ... read more

We left our little piece of heaven at Camping Nevio with a sense of sadness. We took a last look at Korcula town and the lighthouse whose light had kept us company for the last few nights. The road we followed back was exactly the same – butt clenching in every way. We passed through Ston again and viewed the Great Wall of Ston for the opposite direction . It is an amazing feat of engineering whatever way you look at it. On the road side we stopped to pick up a bag of oranges, apples and cherries for 55 kuna. Lunch was spent on the roadside Beans on Toast not exotic or fancy in any way but filling non the less and followed by Lemon Swiss Roll. Simple food but heaven especially with the chocolate ... read more

Another day and another dollar or so they say. Suzy was ready for her Bosnian adventure. She was looking foward to adding another country to the list that she had been to. England and Wales if you count our home two, France, Belgium, Holland, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Slovenia and Croatia so far and today Bosnia would be added. We had heavy rain last night and it sounded like cats and dogs on her roof. Not a good day for travelling. After a quick breakfast and shower we went to pay our hosts for our nights stay. Unfortunately as it was out of season the receptionist had gone home for 15 mins and no-one could take our money until she returned. We struck up another conversation with our Dutch neighbours discussing life in Britain and Holland ... read more

Last night the tour committee had a special meeting to discuss the itinerary for today. After reading about Bosnia it was decided to alter our original plans of driving north through Croatia and instead take a route through Bosnia to our destination at the Plitvice Lakes. The first part of our drive took us north through Mostar to Jablanica. The road followed the Nevetra River through a picturesque gorge with rugged mountains all around us. The river is used for hydro electric power so there are many small lakes where the water is a brilliant green. From Jablanica we headed west through a mix of forested, agricultural and mountainous countryside. At one point we had to stop at traffic lights by some road works in the middle of nowhere. Sitting there was an almost dead gypsy ... read more

Groeten uit Jajce! Waar? Jajce, klein plaatsje in Bosnie-Hercegovina :) Mooi gelegen in de bergen, bekend van een waterval naast het centrum. Wat hebben jullie gemist in het verhaal van Simone? Misschien de verhalen over eten? :) Laat ik dan eens beginnen met een uit-ge-brei-de beschrijving van wat we allemaal gegeten hebben... of niet, gewoon lekker gegeten, veel vis en pizza en pasta en vlees en salades en ijsjes. Jummie! In Mostar (waar we de vorige blog-entry schreven) hebben we van alles gezien in de oude stad: natuurlijk de Oude Brug diverse keren; een moskee met een minaret die we beklommen hebben; de frontlinie van de oorlog, d.w.z. waar die vroeger liep, met veel kapotgeschoten gebouwen eraan; het Turkse Huis, ingericht zoals Turken hier vroeger woonden. Zaterdagochtend om 6:00 op! We gingen namelijk heel vroeg met ... read more
