Yesterday was our last full day in Bled, so, not to waste any of it despite the showery rain and distant thunder, we headed off to the dino park just outside Bled. We'd seen it three years ago and decided it looked naff enough to visit when we first bought Seth. On the way there, the weather worsened and Seth fell asleep so.... We both feel asleep too once we had parked up. Waking from our respective naps it was clear that the weather was not just a bit rainy, it was armageddon. Trying to persuade Seth that the dinosaurs would be better in the sun was just not working (lots of snot, many tears) so we donned coats and braved it in true British style. The woman running the place looked gobsmacked to see anyone. ... read more

Z ubytka smer zel.stanica Budova stara ale pekne upravena, kaviarnicka nesmie chybat. Je tu odstaveny aj jeden parny rusen, v rijeke bol tiez pred stanicou jeden. Vonku pekne slnecno, tak mikina dole a len v kratkom tricku smer cintorin. V miestnom parku dychovka a asi 10ludi, si tu uctievali neakych mrtvych ludi pri pomniku. V okoli cintorina predavali kopu kvetov, dusicky sa blizia. To malo za nasledok aj zvyseny pocet ludi a aut. Mesto pula dokonca dalo gratis dopravu mhd na cintorin. Nuz ale cintorin nebol moj hlavny dovod ist tymto smerom. Ciel je dalsia pevnost giorgio. Keby tu nebola keska ani sem nejdem, bo vsetky pevnosti su tu na jedno kopyto. Kruhova stavba, priekopa a uzavrete pre verejnost. No tato nie, mrezove dvere otvorene, tak idem na prieskum. Dnu maly plac, okolo mury kde boli ... read more

Vonku pekne slnecno a len slabucky vietor. V pekarnicke kupujem ranajky. Pekarniciek je tu dost, to sa mi lubi. Plnene listkove cesto do seba natlacene pri pristave kde ponukaju vyletne lode do np brijuni. Samozrejme v sezone. To teraz moc nehrozi. Popri moru okolo pristavu kde kotvi kopa jacht sa dostavam ku kostoliku Uznesenje Blažene Djevice Marije. Okolo neho prechadzam do fajn stareho mesta. Pekna stredomorska architektura. Je este len 9.30 tak vacsina obchodov zatvorena avsak kaviarnicky uz funguju a ludia popijaju svoju rannu davku. Jedna tour grupa. Cez Park Montezaro, v ktorom kopa skolkarov, sa cestou nescestou dostavam k pevnosti Fort Casoni Vecchi. Kruhovita stavba obklopena priekopou. Dnu sa dostat neda tak ako do ostatnych pevnosti co mam dnes v plane navstivit. Bud je v pevnosti klub, akvarko alebo nieco ine. Nuz dalsi ciel pevnost ... read more

Z ubytka vypadnutie okolo 9.00. Recepcny nikde tak ziadna platba za ubytko, nech si to strhnu z karty. U mlinara kupene orechove hniezda a popri divadlu cez trh smer pristav. Na trhu kopa zeleniny. Dobre to vyzeralo. Uz po pristati v stokholme som chytil druhy dych vo foteni. Cvakam mobilom (na fotak som lenivy a myslim, ze kvalita rovnaka ako na mobile) ostosest. Za den aj 150fotiek. Posledne mesiace v azii to bolo asi 30 za den. V pristave zjedene ranajky. Vyhnal ma dazd. Najskor slabsi ale ako som sa blizil k staremu mestu dost sa rozprsalo. Tak som to zalomil do kaviarne na kapucino. V kaviarniach ludia popijali kavu resp male flaskove pivo. Okolo chodili grupy nemeckych dochodcovskych tour. Po prsacke a vypiti kapucinka smer uzke ulicky a podzemne tuneli. Vchadzam vchodom pri Katolícky kostol ... read more

After a leasurly drive along the Istrian coast we spent a couple of nights in Pula in a modest hotel next to the old Roman amphitheater. The last time in Pula, the Forum was being excavated for artifacts. It has since been resurfaced as nothing exciting was found according to the girl in the information office.... read more

I have been fascinated by the Roman arena in Pula since I first saw the Il Divo video with them singing Amazing Grace there, and that led me here several years ago, and back again today. The Pula Arena is the most complete remaining arena in existence, and one of the 6 largest in existence. Completed in 81 CE, it was long abandoned after the outlawing of gladiatorial contests and fight between prisoners condemned to death. Today it is used for the Pula Film Festival and for various concerts, including artists such as Elton John, Pavarotti, David Gilmour, Sinead O'Connor, and many others. After touring the arena, we elected for an early supper, and had a great repast of grilled branzino and pasta with truffles. A note on the truffles: Istria is famous particularly for the ... read more

Geo: 44.8739, 13.8453We traveled from Split to Pula yesterday in the rain. You may recall we were complaining about the 90 plus temps in Dubrovnik. Well folks, we barely made the 60's today, and we are back in long pants. As we titled this entry, the amphitheater here is nothing short of amazing. The outside is essentially intact even though the construction began before Christ was born and completed in AD 14. Inside, well you recall the Church and Middle Ages, those folks again stole parts (people quarry your own stone!). Nonetheless, even the inside remains impressive. This was Great!! Even Bird was impressed. She worries if HP will remain sane in Rome.A bit of history now. The amphitheater was extremely fortunate to make it to us. The Venetians, you recall those not nice folks, considered ... read more
