There is nothing like putting the entire contents of your suitcase into the laundry basket to give you the holiday blues. Add to that a blocked ear and a suntan (bah! I swear I barely ventured out of the shade!) and it’s a good thing that I’ve got Jurassic Park on dvd.
But a week spent eating, drinking, swimming (…well trying to get better at swimming. On the plus side, I learned how to do a bomb!) and sightseeing in Croatia is well worth a bit of laundry. In fact, it was so lovely that it might even be worth the tan!
Who doesn’t like to spend a hot day in a cave 132 meters below the ground?
Just make sure you get out before the turn the lights out!
A slightly sunnier day out in Rovinj!
The view from the courtyard of St Euphemia’s Basilica
As well as dinosaur footprints, another thing that the guide-book thought would be worth mentioning about Karmenjak are Black Widow spiders…!! I managed not to see either of these things (😦 about the dinoprint, about the spiders!), but how good is this tree?
It grows pink fluff instead of flowers. It’s so my kind of tree.
And now it’s back to normality, work, cat bothering (I thought cats were meant to fall out with you when you go on holiday? Har Gao is a bigger attention seeker than ever before!) and wedding planning for the next couple of months… Eek!
