Croatia By Numbers

posted by: Emma

Arriving in Croatia to a new language, currency and climate (read: very very hot) we Fishing boats near Kornati - Dugi Otokweren’t sure what to expect. Along with a lot of other European visitors we enjoyed some holiday time in Croatia finding small owner-run campgrounds, quiet beaches for swimming and many shady spots to sit out the heat of the day. Here are some facts and figures from our time in Croatia:

  • 733 km cycled (longest day 78 km, shortest day 37 km)
  • 9 nights in campsites, 4 nights free camping, 1 nights in real beds (in a caravan!)
  • 9 days we went swimming (all in the ocean except one fresh water swim at Krka Waterfalls)
  • 6 pieces of Burek consumed
  • 5 days we cycled in 30 degree plus temperatures
  • 4 ferries caught with our bicycles
  • 3 days we left the tent up – though we cycled 30 + km on two of those
  • 28 words of Croatian learnt
  • 0 punctured inner tubes (although we did help a stranded cyclist repair two punctures)

Justin will remember: sweating so much I thought I was going to drown on dry land and cycling through the barren landscape of Pag Island

Emma’s best lunch: buying fresh fish and filleting it at the waters edge in the pretty old pirate stronghold of Trogir. It may have been messy but it was damn tasty.
