Time for a colorful cocktail
Our last morning at Camping Strasko, a final cappuccino at our beachclub at the beach of the camping, and a purchase for the trip ahead, we left Novalja. With our first pitstop 3 kilometers from it!

We made a pact that we would give Zrce a second chance. A nice beach with straw umbrellas and cocktailbars near the beach, is something we can't resist in combination with a warm sun. But the weather didnt cooperate. There were clouds hanging, the sun had no chance of breaking out. Anyway, we chilled on the beach, looked on our map, where to go next. We already had our point of view on Vodice as one of our last stops, so we searched a nice place in between. It would be somehwere in the north of Zadar, between the isle of Vir and the village Nin.
Rainstorm
Suddenly drips came on our map. Within a minute a huge rainstorm came over. Everybody ran to their cars, we ran to the alcohol: the nearest cocktailbar. Boats were going up and down on the waves, plamtrees blew up and down, water came over the exterior and interior of the cocktail joint. We grabbed our cocktails and joined a group who were also soaking wet.

After an hour rain stopped, sun came, as if there was never such thing of a rainstorm. We changed to some dryer cloaths and went up north of the isle of Pag. While at the south side you have to come here by boat, at the upper north side, the isle is connected by a bridge and a natural bridge in the form of a small town. The route was very beautiful, as the isle became smaller and smaller, the cliffs got higher, and the sea more visible.
Natural Bridge


We arrived at Zadar in search of a supermarket. We found a huge Spar, which wouldn't be our final time to visit it. They had the best sandwiches !! We learned some Croatian words, which we added on our Croatian- Dutch list, like krastavac is cucumber :D

It was still a bit chilly, and we were in search for a camping. With huge signs on the way every kilometer, there should be a good camping at Privlaka. Well it didn't matter to us, where we would stay, as everything would be a surprise and Croatia is so beautiful, it wouldn't matter where we stopped. Arrived at the camping, it appeared to be a German camping. Everyone spoke German, so we also had to that. But everything was really badly arranged, we had to pay for our showers. Even with the coins there was only ice cold water.
Tents fall from the sky
There was no place for puting your stuff, so you had to walk naked around the shower areas. It smelled so so discusting, everything was so old. At the camping there was a restaurant. We went eating there, I orderd pasta. All I got was 20 kilos of badly boiled pasta, with three onion rings in it and 2 drips of tomato juice. My mate ordered pizza, which tasted really bad. This was the most discusting ugly camping I ever been on. 0 stars out of 5 and even that is to high for the camping.

At night we went drinking on the beach side of the camping, and saw that there was a fair at the village. With the main attraction : bumping cars !! Owyeah, this was someting we hadn't done in 10 years. We had our own music speakers, so we pimped our bumping car with a real car radio :p .
Posing :D
Some guy came next to us, asking what we were doing. He was pretty big, and said he was the so-called security guy of the fair. I made some jokes, said we were from Holland, and within a few minutes we had a new best friend, who was some karata-kid guy no.5 kickboxer of Croatia who would help us of we were in trouble haha. So finally there was a free carbumper, we got in, the karata-kid guy got in another one and let the battle begin! We are just two huge Dutch guys, so our shins came to the rims of the cars, and with every bumpm we made, the blue spots became more blue. So a great night of, acting as kids again, ahhh memories hehehe
