Me looking brave before taking to the air (and the wing) of the plane. Wow, it was cold !! But the whole experience was totally exhilarating.

Jan's Blog

Computers and the internet are amazing things. One of my concerns with putting together this site was that it could remain current, yet with all my travelling I've often much to say, but little time to say it. Years ago when reading the news it would take me days on end to reply to the kind letters people sent. Now, with the magic of the modern age, I can keep you up to date with what I'm doing and other events in my life.

CROATIA - THE KRKA NATIONAL PARK

Date: 10th June 2017

THE KRKA NATIONAL PARK http://www.justyouholidays.co.uk

This trip was an optional. Could have had a day on the beach or by the pool but wanted to get as much as possible a flavour of Croatia.

It was a long coach journey but we passed through some superb scenery, often framed by mountains. Although there were several relatively young women on the trip (40’s and 50’s) for the more ‘long in the tooth’ comfort stops are always part of the itinerary - very important as we age!

I knew there was a spectacular Waterfall in the Park but had no idea that we’d be on a boardwalk with small waterfalls everywhere we looked. We had the additional good fortune that it had rained heavily in the night so the waters were swollen and feeding all the tributaries.

We also visited a Living Museum comprising a set of stone houses which once housed wool workers. They had different methods of washing the various grades of wool defining whether the end result would be fine or coarse weave. The waters were also used to power a set of very large mill wheels.

I can only put one photo into each blog and have a very busy week ahead but will try and make time to put more photos into the gallery for you. Meanwhile, this is one of the picturesque smaller waterfalls in the National Park.
