How long do u drive before u settle down for the night?

Jump to last reply

I don’t know how to phrase this question. So we have decided to hire a car for our Croatian holiday. What I want to know is:

1. How long do you drive before you settle down for the night?

You see, here in Australia, when my husband and I go on a road trip, we are normally on the road for roughly three or four hours. This also includes little stops along the way for perhaps a photo opportunity or to perhaps explore a quaint little country town. We normally book a place to stay a day ahead, usually when we wake up in the morning in one town we are in, and roughly calculate where we will be in three or four hours time and book the apartment or hotel we want.

2. Is it best to have all our accommodation booked before we leave Australia or do the booking as we go, like we do here in Australia?

And the final question is.

3. When driving around Croatia are there any lets say wild life we have to keep an eye out for?

Reason for asking that question is that here, in Australia, if driving along the country roads, just around dawn or dusk you have to take extra special care because the kangaroos and wallabies are most active at that time. Also if you find yourself driving at night you may encounter livestock on the road. This usually happens when the farmer drives his cattle from one side of the road to the other so they can graze. This happened once to us and lucky my husband was observant that he started to slow down before we came to the heard of cattle. There is something to be said when you suddenly get face to face with a Brahman Bull and I can’t say that word on this thread. I was scared. We got through it though. So with that in mind I started to wonder about Croatian countryside, hence all these questions.
