    Sitting pretty...

    Fondest memory: ..Here's me sitting, at a different spot on Rab Island....again, hot weather....
    Some of them said, "Well, you shouldn't wear a black T-shirt 'cos that would absorb more sunlight ! In fact, you are wearing all black !"
    True, true...

    Hot Shiny day..

    Hot & shiny happy person !

    Fondest memory: ...It was so hot, the weather...& me posing for the camera...standing....
    There were tourists around the area. They didn't feel hot because maybe they were used to this kind of weather ?
    They asked me where I was from, I said 'Malaysia'.
    Some of them said, "We thought Malaysia would be much hotter than this !?"
    Not really, I explained. It's more humid...this is just dry...

    AF Kah Kah

    I saw The Sign...

    Fondest memory: ...Hhmm, the FKK sign.....I should go here...I don't know what FKK stands for in Croatian language... but it is pronounced as Af Kah Kah...It is a naturist area..

    Sure we can go there, we don't have to get naked..but try not to take photos of the people but we can take photos of the scenery...

    The naturists are always lucky to have nice coves to themself...

    Here I met many people....mostly families with their kids, playing volleyballs, lying on the sand, having picnic au naturel...

    Beaches - one for everyone

    by KristaB Written Jul 6, 2003

    Beach in Barbat channel - Rab

    Favorite thing: Beaches in Barbat channel (stretching from the town of Rab to the southeast end of the island) are lovely and small, no crowds, just nature and relaxation. Bring your own food, drinks and umbrella and leave the spot clean and unpolluted, please. Nudist and swimsuits, tolerant, find your small perfect spot under the sun, hide in shade and use UV protection cream.

    Komrcar Park

    by KristaB Updated Jul 6, 2003

    Komrcar park - Rab

    Favorite thing: It is a total Aromatherapy experience to have a brake under lavish greens of the Komrcar Park just near town of Rab, where you can see laurel, poplar, cypress, Indian fig-tree, rosemary, and even one unconventional trio of polar-tree, Mediterranean pine tree and a century old agava growing close to each other.
    The park is criss-crossed by paved pathways, and there are tables and benches on many locations with lovely views over the bay.

    Rab - charms and temptations

    by KristaB Written Apr 16, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    View from bell tower St Marija

    Favorite thing: Rab is famous for its charming medieval old town, dense black forests, numerous pebble beaches, and sandy beaches on the northern tip. Tourism began developing since the City council of Rab in 1889 established special comity to manage roads, rooms and beaches for tourists.

    The bright background

    Fondest memory: Yes ! I climbed up the tower of St. Ivan's Church. The view was amazing. The sun was shining brightly.

    You can see this from the background of me on the photo.

    At the ruins

    Fondest memory: This was taken on my last day on Rab Island before taking my bus to Rijeka.

    It was taken at the ruins of St. John The Evangelist's Church.
