Project 365: Day 327 – Meddling with the Medvednica

24th May 2015 – Zagreb, Croatia

After yet another late night, spent among

The company of cocktails and pretty Croatian lasses.

We took today to the high slopes for cycling,

Photographs, and adrenaline: the opium of the masses.

Panning in the medvednica – Zagreb, Croatia

After the stint yesterday with the heavy Strukla and exploration of Dolac market, me and Barbie went to a local bar called Zabacs, joined by her friend Ana. One drink led to too many, and sleep came calling only around 4 am.

Which explains the waking up at 12 noon today, after which we decided to do something healthy. So, I left with Barbie and Ana to Medvednica.

Medvednica is a mountain just north of Zagreb, which is a nature park nowadays. To get to Sljeme, the topmost point of Medvednica, one needs to take a bus from Mihaljevac, which is the last stop of tram number 14. The bus takes about 30 minutes to get to the top, and also have support to carry bicycles. Lucky for Ana, who tagged her bike at the back, instead of riding up the hill with it.

Once at the top, we sat down at a cafe to entertain ourself with the view of Zagreb, from way above. And of course, the many mandatory pictures. And then, we started going down through some of the trails.

I think the last time I took a panning shot was back in Vanuatu and Delhi. So, it was time to pan again today. Courtesy of Ana.
