2015 saw Wea5el and I decide to holiday in the sun. We also fancied a bit of a road trip, so we combined the two. Croatia is awesome, especially at the end of their summer season, sadly what should have been two weeks of exploring became two weeks of "we'll have a quick punt round that one then hit the beach".
Even so, we got to see some cool stuff that wasn't Soviet or East German for a change. Sadly it was all pretty f'kd, due in most part to the war but also (I suspect) the local youth

"The Haludovo Palace Hotel is an abandoned resort hotel on the Croatian island Krk north of Malinska. The hotel is named after a nearby beach. Bob Guccione, the founder of the Penthouse magazine, invested 45 million US-dollars in the project and officially opened the Penthouse Adriatic Club casino located in the hotel in 1972. Due to constraints on foreign investment in communist Yugoslavia, the hotel was owned by the Rijeka based Brodokomerc 'company'. Today the hotel resort is abandoned with the interior effectively destroyed while the buildings remain intact."

Apologies for the vast amount of photo's, they're on my website but, hey, here is as good as anywhere.
More to come and thanks for looking. I make no apologies for the quality of the images, I have no come to the realisation I'm a mediocre explorer and a shite photographer ;)
