Day 5 - Vamos a la playa

Today the sun was on our side most of the day. We woke up early and went to check out Playa de Los Christianos. It was only 20 minutes from our place.
This beach has golden sand and is close to the port with the same name. Next to this one is another beach, more beautiful from my point of view: Playa de Las Vistas. We had breakfast to a terrasse with balcony. After I finished my breakfast I went for a swim.
I got almost one hour to recharge my batteries on sun. What can I say?! The water is not so warm but the hot sun helps after you get out.
Then we went to Siam park, an aqua park. Yeah.. Not my thing. I don't like adrenaline.  We didn't stay too much because the water was only 2-3 degrees warmer than the ocean water. I checked out the beach. They have artificial waves :)). A little bit of tan, a ride on a river, where you are pushed by the water. If most of the way it's in slow-motion, before the finish there is a slide. For the pros that slide is low level but for me it was too much. The nicest part of this was that I ended up under an aquarium with sharks :)). The other attractions of the park were to high level, so no thanks!
They found that in Adeje there should be a beach club with heated swimming pool, so we went to check out that one. As I was suspecting, the water was not that warm but we stayed anyway. Because the weather was not so good (a little bit cloudy and windy) the entrance was free. We were the last ones to go. We caught the sunset here. The place had a nice view with the swimming pool on the edges.
After that we went back to the usual place, that Irish pub. Tonight was singing the same player from  two nights ago. I think I was the youngest person in the room, the average age was 45+. I am impressed they all still have the energy to enjoy life and good music. Cheers to that!

Croatia: Dreamy Northern Dalmatia

We spent the last days of our holiday exploring the classic Dalmatian cocktail of historic towns, jewel-like waters, rugged limestone mountains, gorgeous climate and Mediterranean cuisine of the Northern Dalmatia. Plitvice Lakes In order to have a full day to spend exploring Plitvice Lakes we stayed overnight in the area. It was so quiet and peaceful there! I wish we could have stayed more days to enjoy that serenity state of the place. Being in some way a remote place it wasn't easy to find a restaurant to have dinner, but when we did it was the best. Cevapi, traditional grilled minced meat with ajvar (roasted red peppers sauce) I don't have a sweet tooth but I enjoy trying local deserts. Traditional strudel with cherries - a touch of chocolate makes this simple desert in a delicacy  Morning coffee with a view Love is in the air! From the accommodation we had 15-20 minutes drive to the Entrance 1 of the park. We have researched which trails to take and the best views are start

Croatia: The Magical Istria

After the short stop in Trogir we drove to Pula where booked accommodation for 3 nights to explore the city and surroundings.  The country side on the way to Pula The drive took around 6h with some stops on the way. After we checked in we went directly in the city center for dinner. One speciality I saw it on the menu in the area is grilled squid with Swiss chard and potatoes. I was hesitant with the green leafs because they waiters were saying it's like spinach and I'm not a big fan of it. But this one was really tasty!   Grilled squid with Swiss chard and potatoes @  Kantina Restaurant The next day we went to one beach in Pula in the morning, another beach in Rovinj in the afternoon and stayed for dinner in Rovinj and explored a bit the city center. Hawaii Beach   Hawaii is a pebbly beach, with big rocks but it's worth it! The water is crystal clean and a good spot for snorkeling. It also has some high cliffs that attract the adventurous ones who want to jump in the water

Bustling Ho Chi Minh City & tranquil Mekong Delta

  My 3 weeks itinerary through Vietnam ends in Ho Chi Minh City (HCMC) or Saigon (as the locals know it). I had 2 days and a half to spend here. Here I met again with Leroy, who got to the city one day before me and left one day before I. From Mui Ne I took another bus to reach the big city. As I mentioned before, buses are the most convenient way to travel. If you arrange it through your hotel/hostel the bus will come and pick you up from there. Usually I prefer traveling by train because I can read and stretch my legs whenever I want, but during my stay in Vietnam I got to enjoy the conversations that you can have in the bus. On the bus to HCMC I met a woman who is teaching English to staff of a resort in Mui Ne. She wasn't a teacher but she did this for the past years, traveling around and teaching locals basic English. She was finding these opportunities through , a website who connects travellers who like to travel and do volunteer work in the place
