We left our lovely lake and drove out of Austria into Italy through some Alps which was once again amazing. It was a wonderful drive and more amazingly it felt like it should be cold but the air was already warm when you put your hand out the window. Once we left the Alps as we got further into Italy the temperatures really ramped up. After a ten day break it was a bit of a shock to the system to be so hot once more. We stopped near Trieste by the sea, crossed the road and jumped ...
Well we made the 5 hour drive into Slovenia, crossing a few borders to get here. A pretty country to drive through but OMG we were in for a surprise!!
We finally found the reception to our hotel in Portoroz and checked in. Not to set the scene we decided to come here as we thought a few days by the pool would be nice to recharge the sightseeing batteries as we had covered a lot of ground, in fact Tim has driven over 2000km (except for ...

Often difficult to read the menus in Croatian but overall has been pretty ...
Went on a road trip to a natural spring mineral river near the village of Roć down a narrow mountain road that was just wide enough for one vehicle, scared the hell out of LeeAnn , to discover no water in the river! It was in a tiny village that was 250 years old. Met a family from Slovenia that insisted we stay and have homemade schnapps and wine, very good. They recommend a great authentic Croatian restaurant on the top of a mountain that was excellent! Returned to Pula at dark. ...
