... A little further along we met a young man with his sheep and goats, quite a large herd, with some rams that had very large horns. We waited for them to pass, a couple of straddlers panicked because they were left behind and ran up the banking away from us bleating to the rest if the herd.
The village is very pretty, we dropped down the narrow cobbled tracks that wound their way down the hillside, some of the whitewashed houses with red roof tiles looked as if they were ...

The first one I visited which happened to be the second one built was not difficult to find as it was at the back of the hotel.

Left Zagreb with the rain at 8 am. Very long day with showers. Amazing how Serbia (after Croatia) is long and took most of the dive day. Afterwards Mazedonia is small! Again some rain. Arrived at 9 pm in Greece, in St Katherini in the hotel Nefeli. Very, very busy full of tourists. The hotel is nice at the seaside.
