Crikvenica Tourist Traps

  • Damir's Profile Photo

    by Damir Written Jun 28, 2005

    Maybe you can satisfied some pickpockets on beaches! Beware on your stuff! You can loose cellular, money, passport or other valuable things if nobody's near them.

    Unique Suggestions: Let always some take care about stuffs in bags. If you are in group do not go all in same time in water. Leave one person near stuffs.

    Fun Alternatives: Alternative, do not take a lot of money, expensive mobiles phones, glasses, passports and other ID's to beaches. Take only a towel and yourself! ;-)

  • Frankopanska Torta #2

    My ever-loving wife and one of my cousins who accompanied me on this cake journey insist it had everything to do with timing. Eating this dessert beast in mid-morning was asking for trouble. I’m not so sure, writing this a week after the event. But, I’ll go along with their take on things, as morning behaviour, especially during vacation, is always...
