Today was a transit day. Left Zagreb this morning. Really nice city. Today we visited politics lakes, a beautiful national park in Croatia, one of 8. Took a walking tour for about 2 1/2 hours. It was supposed to rain, but luckily it never did. We are now in opatija. Really pretty Adriatic coastal city. Reminds me of the riviera. Great views. I can see why Europeans want to come here for their holidays. I'll add some pix now. ... read more

Another lovely day walking around an area of great natural beauty. Plitvice lakes is also a UNESCO world heritage site for the huge number of waterfalls and the beech forested hills. It is beautiful here and is again super popular with visitors. We arrived at the ticket office as it opened at 7am and had to queue (unexpectedly). When we eventually left around 2:30, we were very pleased to have started early as not only were the main waterfalls in better light but we didn’t have to queue for the boat rides or to see the sights, the whole return walk was unpleasant due to the crowds, narrow walkways and people randomly stopping to take photos. Having walked in both directions the walk is best done from entrance 1 towards entrance 2. We did a combination ... read more

Croatia. Tara noastra preferata, desi suntem a doua oara dupa aproape 10 ani. Locul unde nu te recunoaste nimeni, te simti ca acasa, linistit si fara sa fii bagat prea mult in seama. Am ales traseul cu plecare in parcul national Plitvice asa ca am cautat cazare in zona si am gasit-o la Milka guesthouse, o doamna foarte draguta, amabila, saritoare, care ne-a asteptat la ora convenita. Ne-a placut mult, mai ales bancuta din fata casei unde se poate admira frumoasa priveliste cu al ei apus, mai putin insectele de seara. Cazarea ne-a costat 35euro, o noapte, cu parcare inclusa. Camera micuta, curata, frigider in camera, se afla in satul Poljanak, la 6 km de parcul national, loc perfect pt explorarea lui la prima ora in urmatoarea zi. Partea neplacuta este ca trebuie sa mergi in ... read more

Water, Water, Everywhere! Plitvice Lakes National Park is one of THE most beautiful places I have ever been. My photographs don't even begin to do it justice...but I am going to try. I think all the rain we had the last few weeks added to the beauty of the park. Croatia is a beautiful country both along the coast and inland. I am actually now back in Toronto for a couple of weeks before Andrew and I head to South East Asia. I will continue to blog while we are away! ... read more
