Hahaha, I did wonder about the question!

The ship.... was grand, plenty seating space but the vehicle decks were by no means full. I found the ship quite hard to navigate - as in, getting round the place. You had to go up n down the stairs a lot as the middle upper section wasn't open to passengers.

Food was the same only-just-warm stuff as usual. Cabin was basic but very comfortable.

I'd set Louise to go to Omis via the Ploce entry and the Sestanovac exit. But she's not very good at 'vias' and she came off the exit before, and we went through the 4km tunnel Sveti Ilija. When she came out of that she must've been disorientated cos she was saying it was 2.5hrs, when it had been saying about half an hour! I'm glad I caught it on early otherwise I might've been back where I started.

The ACSI site here is huge, with lots of cabins on top of one another - not my normal place at all. But it's very pleasant and it's right on the shore - and on the flat! As often, I find it's cheaper for me NOT using the ACSI rate.

I walked in to town n it's a strange mix of attractive (the surrounding hills, the river inlet with its boats) n ugly (the old communist-style blocks of flats which have definitely seen better days).

Was this the Galeb Camp? We are looking to book a week in September.

Looks very nice Jean, will be booking later this week, looking forward to our trip.

Did you use your ACSI card? The book states that the ACSI option only covers zone B at the rear of the site, not zone A towards the beach.

I was in zone B. But unless you're going to sit in or by the van all day I don't really see the point of paying for a beachside pitch. When I wasn't in town and I wanted a view, I had a coffee at the beachside café/restaurant. But presumably that would get pretty busy later in the season too.

I did have ACSI but almost everywhere it was cheaper just to use the 'normal' rates, with me being solo. The only time ACSI rates were better was near the end of my trip, maybe mid-June, when normal rates had increased but ACSI was still current.

There's a petrol station just along from the campsite that has autogas.

I feel as if I'm still on my trip - and really I am cos I haven't touched home base yet - cos I'm still coming across beautiful places.

Looking down towards Dunfanaghy.
