After leaving our beautiful home for the last 8 days on the yacht we headed to collect our rental car…..totally disorganized chaos, took forever to get our car, plus it was raining…..it was such a palava that we got upgraded to a BMW…..mmmm ok this isn’t too bad, but by the time we got the car we didn’t have time to check out Split in the day time as had to get going have a big drive ahead of us to Slovenia. Oh well just means I will need to come back to Split one day…..gee such a shame, lol.
Our skipper told us to take a more scenic route up to the Plitvice Lakes, according to google maps only 15 mins different in driving time, so we figured why not…..i will tell you why not, trip should have taken 2& 1/2 hours but it took over 4, this meant we now had less time to explore the lakes, this day has not been going to plan at all.
The Plitvice Lakes are in the north of Croatia, they are a chain of 16 terraced lakes joined by waterfalls, so waterfalls and beautiful lakes around every corner, they have built a walk way that lows you to zig zag your way across the lakes so you are right in amongst them. It was still very overcast from the rain that only stopped an hour before hand, so they don’t look as stunning as they would with a clear blue sky, but they where still amazing to walk through.
After a few hours at the lakes, you could literally spend a few days walking around the many trails here, we jumped back in the car and continued our journey towards Slovenia. Crossed the boarder into Slovenia around the time we should have been arriving into Bled with still 3 hours to drive…..oh well what can you do but put on some tunes and relax, well I could as I wasn’t driving, lol.
