Lake Bled to Plitvice Lakes

P1100411

Saturday 27th May

Leaving Slovenia for Croatia, only a short queue at passport control but it still took 20 minutes to get through !

P1100414

Once across the border the roads were remarkably quiet, and if we had turned right instead of left, we would have made very good time ! By the time we had figured out that our comedy SAT-NAV had taken us astray we had driven about an hour !

We asked the guy on the toll booth for directions, and he answered in perfect English and gave us a lovely route off the motorway and through the mountains.

P1100418

We arrived at the campsite a lot later than planned to find K&V, who had left 2 hours after us, all set up and drinking a cool beer.

I MUST BUY BETTER MAPS !!!!!

Sunday 28th May

PLITVICE LAKES

Words fail me, this is right up there with my favourite places in the world !  Check out the waterfalls in the photo below……..

P1100511

This is a national park with many laid out trails

 

It was a Sunday, and in hindsight we should have waited to visit until Monday as it was very busy!

P1100492

We walked for 6 hours, and around every corner was another sight to take your breath away.

P1100500

There comes a time when you run out of superlatives!

P1100508

As with Lake Bled, the colours don’t look real!

P1100503

I wish we could have had a swim in the crystal-clear water (which is apparently so pure that it’s drinkable), it would certainly have been refreshing.

P1100481

This place is so beautiful……

P1100453

I think we might have to come back to this place………

P1100449

Maybe tomorrow ?

P1100438

and I’ll bring my big camera, and hopefully get some better shots !

    Sounds like you’re having a great time but lots of driving. Are you intending to stay anywhere for at least a week to recharge your batteries? How much of Austria did you see on your way to Slovenia? Did you get up into the mountains? Looking forward to the next instalment of your blog. PS – Hockley is looking wonderful after the rain and warm sun.

    • Sorry for the delay in replying, the internet is very hit and miss at the campsites
      We are near split at the moment, and will be here for about 9 nights, this is a great site and we are only 10 paces from the sea!
      (I’ll be in there in a minute!)
      We spent a day in Salzburg but didn’t get up in the mountains this trip,we will have to return.
      There are 2 places which if you haven’t already been to, you MUST visit, Lake Bled in Slovenia and Plitvice Lakes in Croatia, both stunning!!!!
      Glad to hear Hockley is looking good, I’m missing the golf, but I’m managing to find other things to amuse me
