Day 3: Plitvice

Up at 8am and headed into Opatija after a quick (cold) shower where we hired a (VERY EXPENSIVE) Opel Astra for 2 days with Josh and Shell. We decided to drive to the Plitvice Lakes which is about 200km away. It took 3 and a half hours to get there, but we did get to see some of Croatia's magnificent coastline. We also stopped to buy some homemade cheese, honey and Grappa!

We spent a total of 5 hours sightseeing and walking around Plitvice's 16 stunning lakes and waterfalls; a total of about 18km including 2 bus rides and a short ferry trip across one of the lakes. After stopping in a local supermarket, we made the 3 hour journey home on the freeway.

After dinner of beer, cheese, bread and cold meats, we hit the sack around 11.30pm.

Chat soon,
