We are reaching Trieste very late, park at a big parking in the port. Not possible to find a place to pee. Just to emphasize how easy it is for men...
So today we found a beautiful place near Slovenian boarder called Novigrad and we are just beating ourselves for staying Lovran for so long. Here its much calmer, cleaner, a lot of trees, many showers, nice bicycle path along the coast, really cool way to the sea - corals, fish, sea creatures... so we did a little shopping, had breakfast, and went of relaxing under pine trees. Later on that afternoon we invented a new game, a mix tennis, squash, and beach ball. Later on in the afternoon Romain met a nice Croatian man who spoke French because he lived in Nice for 40 years. But then, he said, everything changed and he came back. In the evening we went for a cycle along the coast and we enjoyed night swimming... Late evening we are leaving Novigrad and head to Trieste in Italy, lets see some drama! :-) On the boarder FROM Croatia we are getting maps and Croatia and a lot ( approx. 30 pieces) of cards made of plastic to be safe on Croatian roads... no comment. And after ( of course, you have seen our van...) we are stopped by Slovenian officers and we are checked by dog for drugs and all that stuff, you know... poor dog, the van is so messy that we are expecting that the dog will run out soon screaming... No drugs found we are released...
