Pula:
I'm sitting on the coast of the Adriatic Sea watching the sunset
here in Pula Croatia. What a site this is! There are a few local fisherman
40yds off bringing in the last catch of the day. I went out into the water a
little while back when it was a bit warmer, but only got up to about my
knees and felt that was good enough.

We spent the day in Pula checking out the sites, strolled through an
ancient Roman Coliseum where at one time gladiators did battle and
these days the likes of Sting sing, hiked up into an ancient theater, and
walked under older archways. Pula is a nice small old town that has some neat
old Roman sites to see. We are staying at the youth hostel just outside the
city right on a small bay on the Adriatic. Tomorrow we are off to some other
city, not quite sure where yet. The thought is to take a bus to a city
further down the coast. Then we will catch a ferry and take that the
rest of the way down to Dubrovnik. We can catch one from here but it we will
miss most of the sites because it is an over night trip. The sun is about to
set, I am going to stop for a few minutes and watch the sun dip into the
Adriatic. That was very beautiful, wish you all could have been here to
have seen this sunset. Now I can see some big boats way off in the distance;
probably making there way to a port for the night. I can also see a
major freighter making its way south along the sea.

So tomorrow we are off to some other Croatian city. Colin and I have
been talking about maybe heading up to Sarajevo after we hit Dubrovnik. A
Swiss traveler we are sharing a room with told us that the city is very
beautiful and that the people are very friendly there. So we may head there and
we are also looking at heading to Romania along our way to Budapest. We are
having a good time in Eastern Europe.
Until next time this is Judge signing off from the coast of the Adriatic.

Hey there,
I just wondered how difficult it is to find an accommodation while you are there. Me and my boyfriend are going and don't want to prebook any hotels as we want to see what the areas are like and decide then.

Thanks
