From Krk to Pivka

We definitely picked the right day to move on from Krk, as on the morning we left the skies were very grey with a storm brewing, and within minutes of driving away it absolutely poured down. We would have liked to have made it to Pula and Rovinj before leaving Croatia, but the sites nearby had … Read more


We’d planned to stay at Krk for three nights but ended up staying an extra night as the weather was so good, and it would also be our last chance to relax for a while as we’ll be going back to travelling mode once we leave Croatia.   We’ve walked into Krk a couple of times, just … Read more

We arrived in Plitvice yesterday, after driving down from Zagreb along the country lanes, and the site we’re staying on is located just outside the park. Minutes after we arrived at the campsite two … Read more

From Ljubljana to Zagreb

Sevnica We drove to our next stop in Sevnica taking the country lanes rather than the motorway, and we’re glad that we did as the scenery was really picturesque now that the leaves on the trees have started to change, and we’re now hoping for a very colourful drive through Croatia. The roads weren’t too … Read more
