From waterfall to waterfall…
Avoiding the overcrowded Croatian coast meant driving through mountains, what Patrick specially likes. Julio was coming from Croatia and told us about these waterfalls so it was a perfect place to visit in our way back home.
Plitvička is indeed a National Park and Unesco Heritage (Erik complained that everywhere was Unesco Heritage… I told him that this is because we visit nice places), and everything very well organised. Patrick said that it was very nice that so many people were interested in nature. That’s a positive way of looking the overcrowds 🙂
You can see… queues everywhere! To buy the tickets, to take the buses, to take the boats, to walk through the lakes and waterfalls… Even though we were quite lucky and could avoid most of them (we were quite early at the Park, when we were leaving many people were just arriving…) ‘A quien madruga Dios le ayuda’? 🙂
Swimming was forbidden, but you can see Patrick going into the water… He helped a Spanish guy living in Finland to look for his camera in the water (it was lost the day before, when it was raining cats and dogs). In the end a captain from one of the boats had found it!
