What was the last entry all about??
Sometimes I have tough days....
I got my A into G and rode over 450km to Zargreb the capital today, just what I needed.
What a great city, most tourists give the city a miss and head for the coast, which is probably why this place is so cool. Very pretty and only about 280,000 people.
Reminds me a bit like Wellington, size and feel, not the weather. Temps ever since I left Turkey have been in the 30's maybe a bit hotter on the coast.
I made an interesting entrance to the city, trams run along the side of the road and sometimes you have to follow them. Then I realised that there were no other cars around me and I was following the tram along tramlines into the centre of the city which is a no vehicle zone and ended up in the main square getting a lot of strange looks from the locals, bloody tourists!
A couple of observations: Croatian beer is probably the best I have tried, very nice. The Albainian, Montonegro, and Croatian national flags are probably the coolest around. Aren't Italians posers, Maybe it is just the tourists, there are thousands here. The woman dress like they are going to a ball in the middle of the day and the men are just as bad. They probably think Kiwi's are scruffy unshaven and lack good manners!
Tomorrow I head into Slovenia, another day another country. I have arranged to meet up with some people from Slovenia I met in Bam in Iran (god that seems like ages ago) they were travelling into Pakistan and India by 4x4 so it will be interesting to hear their experiences.
"A fantastic, informative and inspirational DVD."
"It's brilliant - thank you very much!"
