We enjoyed a quiet stay here, with a comfortable, spacious two-room apartment. The hosts offered us homemade schnapps and fresh fruit as a welcome. A grocery store is across the street and a great restaurant is within easy walking distance. This is an enjoyable place to stay.

It all looked difficult to me but I assume some parts were easier than others. Certainly the people we could see as dots on very high vertical faces must have been very experienced.

Bulgaria, Sofia, a lot later than expected. This meant we barely had time to
freshen up after checking in at our hotel before we had to be back on the bus
for a short driving tour followed by an abridged walking tour. I felt really
sorry for the tour ...
... and left it was glorious. The path kind of takes you down a random road with an old mill and couple of deserted small old building and has a little mud track through some bushes to the view point, which may explain why some people don't come all the way here. The view itself loops opposite the valley and show lake upon lakes and all the waterfalls pouring into each one with the luscious green terrain.
After this ...
... disappeared behind the mountains. Beautiful! Our last full day in Croatia is today and unfortunately most of that has to be spent driving back to Zagreb. But it is kind of nice sitting here in the warmth of the car and noticing the slow change in scenery from the rockiness of the coastal mountains to the green lush forest of those of central Croatia. If only we had time we would have loved to go further south down the coast where it seemed to promise more sunshine - maybe next ...
