holidays 2012 - day 01: vienna to drage, croatia

early rise, and we're off around 07:40. on board are 2/3 of our boy group: otto, the crocodile & heinrich, the bear.

it's a day of driving, almost a shame on such a hot and sunny day: south towards the austrian-slovenian border at spielfeld, on to maribor (slovenia) and then zagreb (croatia). first glimpses of the sea near jasenice, a narrow strip between the mainland and pelješac.

the sea! the sea!

we leave the highway near zadar, find a campsite with the promising name "paradiso" in a small place called drage around 4.30 pm, and after setting up our tent, we go for a swim in the lovely water off the pebble beach. aaahhh! so nice after all those hours in the car!

late afternoon at drage

we have dinner at a local restaurant, apparently also frequented by locals. first taste of the local cuisine - meat, of course. bedtime at 10, first night on the brand-new mattress, which makes sleeping even more fun!
