We have planned a visit from Hannes and Oli for the start of September. And then Markus joined as well, he was driving with his bicycle from Ljubljana to Starigrad, Paklenica. We were all happy to see each other again and having friends from back home around us.

Are we going climbing today?
Finally – First looking then flashing!!!

It was planned to go climbing and snorkelling together, hanging around on the beach, cooking good and just having a good time together, what we really had. The first days we spent in the national park of Paklenica climbing. We went as well multi-pitch climbing, which was absolutely new for Markus and Oli.
The national park is nice and tidy and you always find climbing routes in the shade. Many people come here for climbing and you can see it on the rock, but still its no problem for climbing. We were climbing in two groups, to be more flexible. We had as well a chilling day on the beach, which we enjoyed with some beers. Every evening we cooked together and mainly grilled vegetables and cevapcici. The weather was perfect for climbing and swimming in the sea and every night we stayed up late and enjoyed the time together.

Third day – Team Knoppers climbing

After 5 nights we drove further to the south, away from the touristic region mainly having Germans around. During the driving we talked together on the Walkie Talkies, we took some breaks for buying fresh vegetables and food and had our lunch on the beach.
Finally we ended up 15 km south of Omiš, where we knew there should be a sunken ship next to the coast. We found a very cosy camping ground, which was not too overcrowded with tourists, as it was end of season.

The weather was good so we wanted to look for the sunken ship and in the afternoon we went to look for it. After 30 min of walk, we found a nice spot on the beach. After a while of searching, we still could not find the ship so we spent the time jumping down from the cliff and snorkelling. The next days we were climbing in Omiš, relaxing on the beach or went walking along the beach. Good food and beer were the things we had every day. We cooked Risotto, Lasagne, made potatoes in the oven and fresh salads. We collected fresh rosemary and thyme or got fresh almonds.We checked again for the sunken ship and finally we found it 100 m further south of the place we have been the last time. Impressive!!

Romantische Kletterei bei Omis ...

… and saw the world of the fish!!!

Our plan was to stay for only 2 nights on the camping ground, but finally we passed there the rest of our holidays. Markus was sleeping under our truck and Hannes in the cabin of the truck. He was already exercising for the upcoming days. Hannes decided to stay one more week with us and fly back home from Sarajevo. In Olis car there was a free seat, which Markus took over.Unfortunately, after two weeks we had to say good bye to Markus and Oli. The time with you was excellent and we are looking forward for your next visit!!
