Krk to Enterprise – & Naughty, Naked Nudity! Island of Krk, Croatia.

The joy of being a windsurfer. Forecast; wind & no rain. Actual; No wind, rain & thunderstorms!

Krk here.

I was looking forward to my first windsurf in 3 months. It is nice to be reminded what it is to be a windsurfer; sitting in the van in the rain saying “it will get up soon!”

Forecast; 25kts NE; no rain.

A view across the rooftops of Bacharach; the mighty Rhine in the background.

A word of advice. If you don’t like castles, wine and half-timbered houses, do not come to the Rhineland!

It was another beautiful day; we waited until it was cooler to take the dogs out for a walk through Bacharach, which is a pretty cobbled town with lovely old, timber framed houses. We walked up a pathway to the vineyards and were treated to beautiful views across the rooftops over the town. Continue reading “Dog on the Rhine – A Quick Way to Get Schlossed!”
