From Zadar it was a lovely journey along one island, across on two ferries then onto Rab Island, great coastline, very popular we discovered when we tried to find somewhere to stop and have a picnic. The old town of Rab is another pleasant one with a remarkable number of churches, narrow streets and great views of the sea. We did a walk from town out onto the peninsular, through a holm oak nature reserve and along the coast to pretty inlets, beautiful blue, blue sea. For some reason a popular thing to do is sunbathe on the public footpath along the sea-front by town, the sea does look nice there but not an appealing place to spend the day.

From Zadar, we drove over the barren island of Pag towards our base for the next few nights on the island of Rab. From there, it was onto the mainland and on to Plitvice Lakes National Park (see next blog entry!!), Rijeka, Motovun, Opatija and Rovinj. From Rovinj, we took a catemaran to Venice for 4 nights then continued by car for a drive around Lake Garda... fantastic!... read more
