HOLIDAY to NORTHERN CROATIA

 

 Great location…… almost perfect weather…… excellent hotel and meals…..different trips every day…. fantastic group of travellers…..superb leaders.

Forty nine of us set off from Marlow on a dull(ish) Wednesday morning, and a few hours later we had arrived at Krk Airport in northern Croatia, and were making our way to our 5 star Hotel Milenij in the coastal resort town of Opatija, via a sightseeing stop at Tsar Castle in Rijeka.

Throughout the week, we were looked after by the same guide, Nikola. Not only did he give excellent information during all our trips, but also was able to tell us about local customs, and talk about recent history of the region including the Balkan War of 1991 to 1995.
This was the first time the Hotel Milenij had taken such a large group booking, and all the management and staff went out of their way to make sure we were comfortable and had a good time - they certainly succeeded. And nobody lost weight!

Such a holiday as this can only be a delight for those of us fortunate to be in the party thanks to all the hard work of our organisers Penny Clarry and Christine Joerin - we owe them one big ’thank you’. It was a marvelous time together.
