It is amazing what a simple van can do for your traveling experience. Larger than a car, yet smaller than a bus, it provides a unique way of travelling- it’s cozy and provides space for stretching your legs, yet it retains the intimate atmosphere and allows you to relax next to people you know.
A couple of English visitors of Croatia named Eugene and Diane have spent eleven days in Croatia with a van. Here is the start of their Mediterranean adventures:
Just returned from an amazing road trip in a Spicy Camper van along the Croatian coast. We were promptly picked up by Greg at Trieste airport and taken to his home in Slovenia to collect the van. After a short time going through paperwork and becoming familiar with the van we were on our way.
Day One -We firstly drove to Novigrad on the west coast of Istria, staying in Autokamp Kastanija right on the beach!
Day Two – Visited Rovinj, a stunning little town on the west coast of Istria. We stayed in Premantura, right at bottom tip of the Istrian peninsular. Walked into the little town for dinner at a great little restaurant overlooking the square.
Day Three – Visited Opatija and walked 2km along the coast to Voloska. Opatija favorite place so far. Amazing buildings and villas. Drove to Senj and stayed at Kamp Skver. Wonderful camp site with the most amazing views and sunset.
Day Four – Drove to Zadar along the highway. Zadar had lots of historic buildings. Walked to the top of the tower in St Donat’s church. Wonderful town with people sat drinking coffee and people watching. The Sea Organ was well worth a visit. Drove to Murter Island and stayed in Kamp Slanica right on the bay. Beautiful! Read more.
