Day 15 and we continue northwards . Tonight will be our last night in Croatia. Let's get the weather out of the way. It is marginally warmer but nothing to write home about. Not the temperatures we were looking for when we planned the holiday. We are parked up on a campsite on the banks of the River Mur. The train line to Zagreb runs the other side of the river and within an hour we could be sightseeing in Zagreb. We are not keen as we are not in the mood for cities. Duga Resa is a small town and we are just outside the town. If you ever find yourself looking for Camping Slapic then do not trust your Sat Nav. Follow the signs on the motorway that suggest you turn off earlier than ... read more

Ako kazde rano v tomto ubytku, vybehnutie von kupit nieco pod zub a doobedie na ubytku. Na obed stretko s chlapcami z tasr. Povodil som ich po centre, kde ozaj neni nic extra. Proste vsetky mesta su na jedno kopyto. No chlapci si kupili aspon suveniry. Posedenie na kave a nazad na ubytko. Este sme boli v spare kde lukas 2 nakupil neake tie chorvatske pochutiny, ja som kupil cesku chmelovu pochutinu. To vychlastane v lobby, na ubytku do seba hodene este jablkove pivo co mi dala tw zo studentskej restiky. Dnes od rana teda 4plzne a male jablko. Oproti pokladaju stresnu krytinu. Ako som isol okolo nich, tak jeden si pchal do bundy ploskacku. Hned som si spomenul na byvalych spolupracovnikov :) Postupny presun na stadion. Tam som prisiel uz po tme. V okoli cihalo ... read more

Zas sa budem opakovat ale rano to iste. Len zmena v jedalicku, kupil som 20dekov salamu. Uf dobre vela toho bolo. Som to spolu so syrom a drevorubacskym chlebom do seba tlacil prakticky az do obeda. Vladny special mal z ba meskanie, miesto 11/45, dosli 12/45. Lucas mi posiela echo a pesibusom sa vyberam do hotela pod znackou hilton, kde byvaju novinary Ono sa dalo ist aj elektrickou ale fakt som strasne prezrany. Tato chorvatska strava mi nerobi dobre na postavu. Prichadzam do hotela, pred ktorym hliadkuju policajti ale nevsimaju si ma i ked mam na hlave capku seredani. Na recepcii mixom slovenciny a chorvatciny vravim nech mi vytocia lucasa. Ten po chvili zbieha dole a uz ideme k nemu na izbu, ktoru zdiela s dalsim clenom tasr. Odovzdava mi balicek z domova. Je tam vsetko ... read more

Rano to iste ako vcera. Vybehnutie do sparu, tu kupa cokomlieka, v pekarnicke vedla istrijska kocka a to vsetko zjedene v chilli a computer miestnosti, kde neskor dopisany dennik. Okolo obeda vybehnutie do Gradski park Bundek. cestou samozrejme kupa nabijacky, kedze mi to cez fotakovy adapter nenabijalo. Vonku hmla, ah vobec mi tu nepraje pocasie, som mal v plane turu na medvednicu, no nist niekedy nabuduce. Zajtra a ani vo stvrtok uz na to nebude cas. Zajtra mi ma priletiet vladnym specialom batozina /hehe na toto su pouzite nase dane, na rozvoz batoziny pre cestovatelov/ a stvrtok uz je football day, i ked sa hra o 21/00. V meste sa pokusim odlovit volakych trnavakov a pridat sa k nim na jedno tocene. Co sa tyka piva, tak je tu strasne moc popularna znacka staropramen. Prakticky v ... read more

Rano postupne odchadzali sikmacky. Ranajky sa daju kupit i na hosteli, cena 30k. Ja vyuzivam miestnu pekarnicku, makove kolace, a spar, kakaove mlieko. To zjedenie v podzemi hostela v kuchyni. Tu nachystane ranajky pre ludi co si ich tu zakupili. Cornflakes, mlieko, mandarinky, dzem, toasty a pijatika. Po jedle velmi neprijemny sok na izbe. Volaky kokot/pica mi udrbal nabijacku na mobil. Bud to bola neprijemna sikmacka alebo jeden s chalanov co tu spali. Sikmacka co sa zamkla na izbe o nicom nevedela. Ale je to moja sprostost, nemal som ju nechat v zastrcke. Doobedie len lezanie v posteli a v pc miestnosti dopisanie denniku a nahadzanie cs ziadosti do belgicka. Turu na medvednicu rusim, vonku pod makom. Na obed smer mesto. Este sa pytam recepcnej kde je neaky shop s nabijackami. Pica mi povedala nech behnem ... read more

Noc bola fakt nahovno. Nafukovaci matrac vpohode ale strasna zima. Vobec sa v tomto byte nekurilo. To je vysvetluje aj tu vlhkost. Nevim ci je odstavena od plynu abo len setrila. Fakt nahovno. Z postele vypadavam o 8/00 a cakam do 10/00 ci sa mi bude venovat abo co. No ona len lezala v posteli a hrala sa so psom. Bookujem teda hostel a hajde prec. Este je prekvapena,ze preco odchadzam. Ha a pica mi este dala v noci von na okno topanky, bo jej smrdeli (stacilo ich nasprejovat). Takze rano topanky zvnutra krasne vlhke. Check in je az od 14/00 tak idem pomalicky pesi cca hodinku az do hostela bureau. Cestou kupa oproti bus stanici v pekarnicke neake tie neskore ranajky. Povodne som si chcel dat na ranajky pizzu co som vcera nezjedol /som ju ... read more

Po slabom spanku smer blizka bus stanica. Vonku hmla. Na raňajky davam mandarinku a bengbeng este z thajska kde som kupil cely karton. Bus stanica stara ale pohoda. Flixbus meskal 15min ale cestou toto meskanie dobehol a prisli sme dokonca o 5min skorej. Po vystupeni na bus stanici v zahrebe sok. Som si pripadal jak v azii, kopa sikmacov. Cs meska pol hodinu. Prichadza so psom. Prvy dojem z nej nic moc, co sa neskor aj ukaze ako spravny odhad. Nasadame na elektricku a ideme k nej domov, bez listku. Vraj takto cestuje kopa domacich. Vzdy ked uvidia revizora (vraj moc casto nechodia) vystupia. Revizor ma uniformu a tasticku v ktorej ma stroj na pokuty. Takze je lahko identifikovatelny. Ani tejto cs nejde dohlavy ako som si mohol dovolit cestovat tak dlho. Ked tak rozmyslam, chorvatov ... read more

Good breakfast then departed 8am. Had to turn back as somebody left their ipad at the hotel, wasted an hour. Roadstop then crossed border into Croatia, had to disembark twice at the crossings. Arrived Zagreb at midday, picked up Mattea for city tour. Bus tour around the lower town then walked the upper town which is the old town. Stopped at old town square, where cathedral and parliament buildings. Walkedvdown streets to lookout over the lower town then through the old stone gate to the lower town, market square to the main Cathedral then main city square. Spent an hour wandering around stopping for coffee and ice cream at Krass cafe recommended by Mattea. Back to city square where there was a motorbike meet, (appox 100 bikes) they were just heading off which was great to ... read more

We have reached the farthest point of our journey. Now to start the 1000 km drive southeast to Skopje. Today is our third and final visit to Croatia, to the capital city of Zagreb. It’s all motorway so progress is rapid but dull. After days of yearning for a decent motorway as we picked our way along Bosnian goat tracks and Albanian roadworks, I’m bored of motorways now. The old man alleviates the the boredom briefly by taking a wrong turn and accidentally heading for Austria. We find our way back onto the Zagreb road, cross the border and reach our destination by 10.30. Lonely Planet doesn’t have much to say about Zagreb, which is fine as I am out of clean underwear. So, first port of call is the laundrette. Armed with clean pants, we ... read more

So Dan left us this morning. His alarm went off at 5 am, and he was out the door by 5:15. We woke up and said our goodbyes and then went back to sleep. Toure picked us up 10 to start our day's tour of the city. Since the day before was a lot of walking, we started later in the morning and drove around the rest of the city. We started with a drive to the upper town. It was the wealthy area of the new town. We drove around all the homes of the ambassadors to Croatia. The homes were incredible and one definitely wants a job as an ambassador to Croatia! There were many neighborhoods that had beautiful architecture and it was quite hilly. Our first stop was at the town cemetery. It ... read more
