Croatia: Hike - Vrženica Canyon, Rebica, Vela luka, Corinthia, Easternmost Point of Krk, Mala luka, Lubinin

With Nada we decided to spend a couple of autumn days by the sea. Since my hands were equipped with plaster, we walked a lot. We were settled in Baška and we decided to conquer easternmost point of Krk. On our way we walked by some nice bays, through Vrženica canyon to viewpoint Rebica. Soon we admired the view to Vela and Mala luka. We also visited the remains of the Corinthia Fort and then we finally reached the easternmost point of the island. Already being exhausted we returned back over the peak called Lubinin.

And on the other side we had Vela luka

Mala luka from Corinthia Fort, that watches the easternmost cape of the island of Krk. This spacious archaeological complex consisted of a port settlement with 3 churches along the Mala luka cove and an acropolis at the top of the Sokol peninsula, which served as a military and administrative hub.

Difficult sharp terrain was not easy, especially against the shoes

Slovenia: GeoCaching in Ljubljana

I had a couple of hours of free time in the capital of Slovenia and I decided to explore it a bit through geocaching. I visited attractions such as quiet little square called Mali trg, Butcher's bridge or Ljubljana's love bridge, Ljubljana castle, Old Karlovac bridge, Botanical garden, Špica, an ex Ljubljana town beach, Mary's Spa, that were deliberately burnt to the ground in 1931 and a Roman forum, town square of ancient Emona.

The Butchers' Bridge, where countless lovers symbolically padlocked their love and dropped the keys into Ljubljanica.

Ljubljana Castle - Originally a medieval fortress, it was probably constructed in the 11th century and rebuilt in the 12th century. It acquired its present outline with an almost complete overhaul in the 15th century, whereas the majority of the buildings date to the 16th and 17th centuries.

Monument dedicated to Slovene peasant revolts, that were going on in 1473, 1478, 1515, 1573 and 1713 along with a photo from  Botanical garden, established in 1810, which is the oldest cultural, scientific and educational institution of continuous operation in Slovenia.

The park's name, Špica, translates as "pointed tip" and refers to the embankment's pointed shape. In the past, Špica was a town beach.

Small park in Trnovo with a monument dedicated to Slovenian Impressionists Matej Sternen, Ivan Grohar, Rihard Jakopič in Matija Jama.

Slovenia: Jošt

Foggy and cloudy morning was good for another quick hike. With Nada we picked up my niece Klara and we drove to Spodnja Besnica, from where we started our trip. We spiced up the hike with a couple of geocaches and a bit of rain on our way back to the valley.
