At this point and time in my journey, most of my travel decisions are based on the weather. I am watching the forecasts and seeing so much rain, so if there is a patch of just fairly good weather I go for it. Yes, I can ride in the rain, no worries, it’s all part of the adventure. But I was recommended this coastal route along Croatia and anyone who said so, points out how spectacular it is… but not in the rain! So make my way to Zadar… now!
It is a very nice road for sure. No question as to why it’s so popular, and I can see how much of it I would miss on a full rain day. The road literally hugs the coast line all the way, making it a continuous slow curvy ride. I never did get full sun, but this sunny haze will have to do.
It’s well past lunch time. After exploring old town Krk with Nikola and his family, I lost track of time.
And again, being the off season, most places are completely closed and boarded up. I finally found this little village and an open restaurant.. hallelujah!! Not a soul there, except the lady who runs it. She was sitting outside smoking and reading a magazine, so I hated to disturb her. But she was kind and seemed pleased enough to help me figure out what I can have. There were some pictures on the wall inside the restaurant. Again, I don’t read the menu, I pre-decided what I would like to have well in advance, and then set the challenge to explaining this to a Croatian woman who speaks zero English. I wanted a salad sandwich (lettuce, tomato, cucumber and cheese) toasted, and french fries. She went over and over the details, and through the translation, she did an excellent job.. it was superb!! I’m in the land of olive oil.. I love french fries cooked in olive oil……. ;-)))
Is this it??
No… but I always like to see how things are built in different countries. You can see why this house will last for hundreds of years compared to others.. people around here are still living in dwellings built over 500 years ago..! Not much of the western world can say that!
Okay, by the looks of those clouds I have got to stop looking around town and get to where I am supposed to go.. luckily, the house I need to find is just around the corner from here. A good room to hide out while the rain comes through for a couple days again.
There is a lot more to my Croatia adventure, so this will be continued!
