You would need to spare some time and space for the dog, both of these are important considerations before picking a breed of dog. Some dogs require more exercise and therefore need bigger space at their disposal. Some dogs can stay happy in an apartment. Temperament of the breed also matters; some dog breeds are more aggressive than others but this varies from one dog to another. Therefore a temperament test is recommended.

If you are in a search for a beautiful, strongly nature related place for your vacation I deeply recommend you to try your luck on the island of Cres, you won’t be disappointed. Cres is not a strong, crowded tourist place that everybody is hungry to go to, but (and it is a big but!) numerous are for sure going to find many things that will make their departure very hard.

I don’t know where to start when talking about the island of Cres. General details like its size, tourist offer you can find almost anywhere on the Internet, also on one of my pages, but I wanted to share with you some other things that fascinated me personally on Cres.

The island of Cres is, in my opinion, one stunning island, a living example of the nature’s quiet harmony with people sharing each other’s existence and destiny. Just for a record – I am not the only one who thinks so.

The eastern part of a steep eastern coast of the island of Cres is domicile of white-headed eagles. Eagles just make more profound magic of a relationship between man and nature. That part of island Cres is also an ornithology park since the year 1986 and still existing in a good condition.

white-headed eagles

Northern crests of the island of Cres are practically unreachable, worned out by the wind. In spite to this fact, probably due to the natures will to exist, this northern part of the Cres has got surprisingly large forest (pine, oak, hornbeam) areas. Even climate conditions on the island are not the same on its whole area. Namely, there are noticeable differences among the northern and the southern part of the island. Northern part of the island of Cres has a standard temperature in January between 5 and 6 °C and a yearly rainfall of 900 – 1000 mm, while its southern part has 800 – 900 mm of a rainfall and the temperature 6 – 7 °C.

Because of the exposal of the eastern part of the island to the cold north wind bora, the western part of the island is evidently warmer and the soils are clearly more humid. I can see the logical thinking of the people which inhabited mainly the western part of the island of Cres.

The eastern part the same as the central part are significantly not as much populated.
On the island of Cres, in its central part is situated Vransko Lake. Vransko Lake is a natural pool of extremely clean water. It reaches its bottom on 68 metres below the level of the sea and its surface is usually around 13 metres above the sea level. It contains around 200 million cubic metres of water and is the major supply of water for two islands – Cres and Mali Losinj.

Camping Cres is one of the choices you will make if you want a vacation to stay incontact with a pure nature.

No doubt, you won’t have any problem getting on the island of Cres. Although, Cres is not the most often visited island, it has got really good connections with the mainland and with neighbour islands.

All ferries that will help you get to the island of Cres are run by the Jadrolinija. So, you can choose where the most suitable for you to go from is. You can go from the city of Rijeka directly to the city of Cres. In that case, your trip will last for about one hour and fifteen minutes. This trip can be very pleasant in nice whether.

About twenty minutes you will travel if you depart from Brestova (on the dry land close to Rabac) and dock in Porozina on the island of Cres. If you are already on theisland of Krk, you’ll have to go to the small town Valbiska and from there the ferry will get you in Merag on the island of Cres in about 30 minutes.

The island of Cres is the second by size after the island of Krk, between all of the Croatia’s islands. Cres is also connected directly to the island of Losinj by the mobile iron bridge that will safely take you over a narrow artificial canal.

There is also a good connection to the island of Cres from the capital of Croatia Zagreb. From Zagreb the bus departs in direction of the city of Cres and will get you there for about 4 and half hours. For this and other busses, try to contact Autotrans by phone or on the web.

If you are going to Croatia by a car, be sure to have a valid drivers licence and you will also need a green card of insurance. Watch out for the traffic in summer months – it can be very crowded on those roads, but there is no reason for panic.

If you want to avoid crowded roads and maybe you don’t enjoy ferries, in that case also the plane is a possibility. Namely, there are many regular flights to the airport of the island of Krk and to the airport in the town Pula. From those two destinations transport is organised to the hotel Kimen and also to the auto camp Kovacine.

In Croatia you will need for your expenses the Croatian money – KUNA. For 1 euro you’ll get about 7 kunas. Croatia is not an expansible country and everywhere you go, you’ll find good places to eat some of the delicious native food. People in Croatia usually speak English, often also Italian and German language and are very friendly and the most often prepared to help on everything – either to find a spot on the map or lead you to the best beach or place to eat.

Colombian food is becoming increasingly diverse with time. On the one hand, there is the deeply traditional food that is so ingrained in the culture that many Colombians are not particularly interested or willing even, to change their eating habits.

On the other end of the spectrum, Colombian agriculture consists of a massive diversity of local produce due to its contrasting climactic regions, that provides top notch ingredients for the booming restaurant scene. Some of the popular fruits in the region are Guanabana and Maracuya.

Colombian Coffee

Obviously, we can't forget Colombian coffee, known throughout its historythe world as being some of the finest and especially for the ArabicaColombian coffee beans.

colombian food

Especially the larger cities such as Bogota, Medellin, Cali and of course Cartagena, have high-end restaurants that serve international as well as modern Colombian cuisine such as empanadas.

You can divide Colombian foods culture by regions, and rural vs. urban. That, and of course, wealth. There's no denying, Colombia has vast differences between rich and poor and it often seems as though they live in different worlds altogether. In many ways, they really do.

If eating at a restaurant, I find it's best to go for traditional unless if the restaurant is of the necessary caliber to pull of good Italian, Sushi, Chinese or whatever it may be.

Typical Colombian Food (Criolla)

Colombians like their meat, especially pork, although this does vary depending on the region. Main Colombian dishes are usually served with arepa (corn bread), platano (plantain), arroz (rice) and/ or frijoles (beans), sometimes a number of these to a lesser extent but still prevalent like in the Bandeja Paisa dish, there is of course the potato.

Mondongo (soup with tripe) is another favorite but I'm not going to lie to you, the idea of eating tripe just doesn't do it for me. I have tried in hopes of being proved wrong; with no luck I'm afraid. Bogota is known for its Ajiaco, a chicken broth made with potatoes, corn and avocado.

People from Medellin and Antioquia are passionate about their Sancocho. This stew comes in all forms but consists essentially of some form of meat, plantain, corn, yuca and other vegetables. It's usually fairly crammed with all sorts of tasty stuff.

Another favorite or the region, is the empanada, a type of stuffed bread. Tasty as a snack or light meal! And then there is of course the local sausage known as chorizo.

The coast relies far more on seafood and is known for its fried fish with arroz con coco (coconut rice) and selfish soups.

Colombian food is often hearty but healthy. It's typically not of the processed sort so prevalent elsewhere these days and relatively "organic".

Colombian Cuisine is taking off.

A new trend started emerging around the year 2000 and has been increasing steadily since then. Improved safety levels, increased wealth and a more cosmopolitan approach to eating, particularly in the bigger cities, is making Colombia an interesting place to dine.

Personally, I think something big is happening here. Embracing traditionalColombian Recipes and giving a touch of modern, with the abundance of fresh produce and ingredients that this nation has, it looks set to become a major food destination.

Desserts

In Colombia there's a wide range of products available to anyone which is the reason why there's such a rich and varied cuisine. Colombian dessertsare mostly sweet and are based in sweet fruits and other products that can be found anywhere in the world, therefore making Colombian dessert recipes easy for anyone to reproduce.
