The Long and Winding Road

Thursday 15th June

Today we set off on a journey “To Boldly Go Where No Man Has Gone Before”, this is not quite true but when you are heading for Krk island (pronounced Kirk) I thought a few early bad puns were in order!

We took the road that hugged the coast which made for a spectacular drive, although when towing a caravan could be a little slow.  This gave the locals the opportunity to show us all a few startling overtaking moves!  At first I thought this might be because they were aggrieved at getting stuck behind us, but on meeting similar minded drivers coming towards us (mobile phone in hand on wrong side of road, or after overtaking pulling in at the last minute, missing me by inches and causing me to brake sharply) I realized this was as Spock would say “Highly Illogical ” but just the Croatian style!

On such a windy road there are very few opportunities when towing to pull over for a comfort break, so an empty restaurant car park is an ideal stopping place !

Although it was a little cloudy today I set the camera “To Stun” and wasn’t disappointed with the results.

Jane was a little worried when I set the car to “Warp Speed” and grew even more concerned when I said “I Canee Hold Her Captain” whilst cornering a little too fast !

“Bridge To KRK, Bridge to Krk” OMG have I really got to drive over that ??  (You may have to zoom in to see it.)

What was the problem?  Safely landed on the planet, James T would have been proud !

So here we are, our new base set up and Jane is dressed up ready to explore the night life of this beautiful looking island. We were off out to try a new “Enterprise” which had just set up down the road, and as I got into the car Jane said “Make It So” and off we set !

    Sounds like you’re having a great time. I’m really envious. We’re having a few parent issues at the moment so your blog keeps us smiling.
