Flag of Croatia  , Kvarner Bay Islands,
Tuesday, September 4, 2012

Had super omelette for breakfast n a chilled out morning before taking the bus back to Ljubljana ready for the train to Rijeka- Croatia!

The train stopped on the border for some police to get on and check our passports before rolling off again. Woohoo Croatia here we are!!

The train pulled up and we had a short wander through Rijeka to find the bus station. Just on time for the bus to Krk, an island connected to the mainland by a bridge. The scenery here is very different, still quite mountainy but very gravelly rocky and arid but with lots of shrubby plants.

Already we could see how clear the sea was and started getting very excited! We jumped off at a stop called Malinska, a small-ish fishing village which is a bit touristy by the harbour and shores with some bars and restaurants.

After checking in to a campsite (which was super cheap!) we pitched our tent on the gravelly ground (not looking forward to sleeping on that later...) and headed down for a quick explore.

A 2 minute walk to the beach just as the sun had set, resulting in a pretty view of the surrounding coast and harbours with twinkling lights. We then strolled round and nipped into a restaurant for dinner- our whole bill of 2 beers, a bottle of water and 2 meals cost 10. Yeehaa! That saves plenty of cash for pudding then...

So found an amazing ice cream place next to the harbour!! 70p for a delicious scoop of ice cream and wide variety of flavours... I'd better try 3! :P

Back to our campsite to try out my roll mat in the stones... Looking forward to a swim n snorkel tomorrow!!!
