European Road Trip to Croatia

European Road trip Hohenwerfen Castle, Austria.

The good thing about doing a road trip to Croatia is getting to see so many European countries within just a few days. As you may have noticed, I got to go to Croatia for a week by parasitizing on my parents’ vacation plans. I already posted about visiting Šibenik and admiring its historic charms, but it seemed like a shame if I just let these road trip photos get all dusty and unused on my SD card.

Day 1: The Netherlands to Slovenia

We drove all the way from Breda (the Netherlands) to Croatia, crossing through countries like Austria and Slovenia. We stopped for a moment after we had just crossed the German border into Austria, where the mountain ranges offered some amazing views. Eventually, we drove about 1175 km that first day. After a long day of driving, we stayed overnight in Slovenia before setting off to Rab (Croatia) the next day. Our stomachs started to grumble and we had a fabulous dinner at a local restaurant in  Šenčur. That vegetarian plate changed my life man, Slovenians sure know how to handle their veggies. Didn’t turn me into a vegetarian, but still.

Day 2: Slovenia to Croatia

The next day we woke up early to a gigantic breakfast, I couldn’t even finish my chocolate croissant (never happens). After about 253 more km left on our road trip and a ferry ride from Stinica to Mišnjak. Then, we finally made it to Rab and our Croatian adventures could begin!
