John Shipton kindly sent back a trip report back from a paddling trip to Croatia:

"This May/June we made a 5 week journey through Europe in our 16 year old Renault Megane. In the back we carried, as usual, our Advanced Elements Sports kayaks which easily fitted in with all our camping gear.

Part of our long journey, which included forays into the Velebit Mountains and Italian, Slovenian, and French Alps, included the Dalmatian coast. Here we could indulge in some gorgeous paddling. Our main kayak adventures were around the island of Dugi Otok (Long Island) near Zadar. Dugi Otok borders on the Adriatic National Parks of Kornati and Telascica which we could explore.

We also took in some paddling around Cres and around the Istrian peninsula."
