We have to confess to knowing very little about Slovenia before we arrived here. Shame on us, I know! All we really knew about it was that it was the first former Yugoslavian state to get it's independence back in 1991, that Lubljana is it's capital city and it's the home of Adria motorhomes and … Continue reading Into Slovenia – The Miniature Unknown!
Our stay at the awesome Camp Zagreb was punctuated by blistering heat (37C at one point on Wednesday afternoon!) and an almighty storm on Wednesday night which circled around us for what seemed like hours before any rain fell. There was something almost surreal about sitting under our awning, BBQing our dinner, whilst watching the … Continue reading Arriverderci, Croatia – We Shall Miss You!
On Monday morning, we bade our final (for now!) farewells to Camp Marina, and headed north for The Plitvice Lakes National Park. Again, we took the inland route and witnessed further the consequences of The Homeland War - quite saddening, to be honest and it really has piqued an interest in what exactly happened to … Continue reading Our Final Few Days In Croatia – For Now!
So, the rain persisted as we left our pitch at Camping Kate last Wednesday morning and persisted until we'd cleared Dubrovnik's northern limits - a tad disappointing as the view down over the city from the cliff road as it wended it's way around was awesome but not very photogenic in view of the rain … Continue reading A Damp Departure From Dubrovnik Led To Our First Croatian Disappointment – But Not For Long!
The thunderstorm and rain, which we've been expecting for the last couple of days, finally arrived today so our planned walk along the coast to Plat has had to be postponed for a few hours. Team Sebo busied themselves with domestic chores and a long overdue updating of our trusty old map. When I say … Continue reading Our Journey So Far…..
As another sweltering day broke, Team Sebo were up bright and early to purchase water taxi tickets from Reception, walk Harley and get ourselves ready for our day of discovery in Dubrovnik. Harley was pretty relieved when he realised he wasn't going to be dragged around yet another city in the blazing heat and gladly … Continue reading Dubrovnik Tops The Team Sebo Hit List
So, there we were, fresh off the Hvar ferry on Sunday afternoon, meandering slowly down the coast road, with a vague plan to spend the night at Camp Rogac at Slano enroute to Dubrovnik. All well and good? Well no, not exactly....turns out that, despite it's website claims that it re-opened on April 1st, … Continue reading A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To Dubrovnik…..
On Wednesday morning, we upped-sticks and drove the 20km down to the north coastal town of Stari Grad, the historic centre of Hvar Island. It was said to have been founded by The Greeks in 384BC so, yeah, it's pretty old! As we'd thought, the only campsite there is now defunct and being used as … Continue reading No Bed For Sebo In Stari Grad But A Gem Of A Find In Jelsa
Yes, folks, Team Sebo have been checking out Hvar Town's reputation as The Party Town but, before I spill the beans on all that, I suppose I should fill you in on how we actually got here! Hvar Town is, not surprisingly, the main town on Hvar island - no medals for working THAT one … Continue reading Hvar Town – Party On Down!
Our drive down to Trogir was marred only by a bunch of major roadworks and badly signed diversions (of which our CoPilot seemed blissfully unaware!) which led to a bit of stress for Team Sebo.....particularly for Harley who, having listened to his Dad muttering "FFS!!!" on numerous occasions, now believes there to be another dog onboard, … Continue reading Our Love Affair With Croatia Continues….
