Fantastic Place!
This apartment was spotless, appealing, well-equipped and very conveniently located. We appreciated the strong WiFi and washing machine. Ingrid was friendly, efficient, patient and welcoming. Make sure you let her know when you're coming - there's no reception desk. It's personal check-in only.

Sooooo... the 2:10 train from Ogulin to Rijeka is... a bus. There's construction today on the train line. The next available train is at 6:30 tonight so we have a whole 'nother day to use up in Ogulin. I'm feeling vaguely Twilight Zone-ish.
It was a slow day in Ogulin, just spending time until it was time for an actual "train". We got to witness, up close, the local excitement for the day - a couple of firemen installing a banner on the front of the church. Good times.
We rode the train from Ogulin to Rijeka today. The train was like one from the movies, with the fancy little compartments like in Murder on the Orient Express. As soon as we got on the train we were greeted by Pierre and his wife, Ruth - a couple of cycle-touring Montrealers. We spent the whole voyage talking with them - it was great to swap stories and tips!
