Oh man, I got sick in Rijeka, what a bummer! After 2 weeks of parties, travelling, not sleeping much and not so much as looking at a piece of fruit kind of caught up with me but still, thats life on the road, a few days of bed rest and Im good to go again.. of course it helps that the bedroom has a gorgeous view out to the adriatic sea, I like!
Upon leaving Croatia I was set to fly out of Rijeka airport, which gets the title of the smallest Flughafen ive ever flown from, the Croatian border guard says to me in his rather broken slavic english
"So you have been in Croatia for 1 year?"
Now remember ive got the jungle fever and Im tripping out on too many asprins so I have a minor freakout for a moment
"what are you talking about, ive been here for 2 days… thats crazy talk, what are you talking about, hey, what the?"
And I point to my passport to show him the stamp which he has already seen and I take a closer look
When they stamped me into Sapjane two days before, the guy has got they year wrong, so according to this I have indeed been in Croatia for 1 year and 2 days. The guy is pretty confused and I show him the million other stamps Ive had since 15/03/2006, including the last one for Bratislava two weeks ago and he seems content to let me out. He lets me go and starts laughing to his mate "haha, Bratislava, haha".
What a fantastic two weeks I had, Bratislava into Wien and onto Salzburg then down to Slovenia and finally Croatia. I met so many fantastic new people and we had a great time together, now thats travelling to me.
Ill leave you with a last little piece of Croatian craziness, this is on the front door to the airport in Rijeka.
No women in underwear, you heard the man, put those clothes back on young lady! Only after Id taken the photo off my camera did I notice the two marks some wise guy had made on it, good to see some things are universal 🙂
