Trip Report Oct. 2014 in Croatia, Slovenia, Montenagro and Bosnia-Herzegovina: TR

Photography and pure relaxation make for a fun journey around part of old Yugoslavia in the fall. Trip Report

10/02/14 Los Angeles--San Francisco --Frankfurt--Zagreb.

We had followed the anti-jet lag diet as usual so had not eaten that day until this breakfast before landing. This plan works so well for us so that any jet lag is almost nonexistent. However, we can never bring ourselves to follow it on the way home.

10/03/14 A driver picked us up at the Zagreb airport ( a luxury I love) and took us to the Jagerhorn Hotel, where we had a small charming room and large bathroom. The location was fabulous, 1 block from Jelacic Square. We dropped off our carry-on bags and walked around the city. Finding a small interesting shop, my husband asked if they had any nativity scenes--which we collect from the countries we visit--and voila, they did. This one was crafted out of metal and displayed against a curved piece of glass, unlike any we own. From there we stopped at the Museum of Naive Art but they wouldn’t let me carry my camera backpack inside and I could not bring myself to leave that heavy sack of expensive camera and lenses, so we left and walked around.

Saw the cathedral which is being repaired- with one spire covered by a canvas--painted to look like the actual spire behind it. We walked on and found the restaurant that Rick Steves had recommended but there was no space available so we made reservations for the following night. We walked on to a simpler restaurant where we shared a pizza with a glass of house wine. We felt clear-headed, but did get quite tired by bedtime.
