April 22, 2019 – Putting Croatian adventure tourism on the map, with the biggest welcome in the world. Day 29 of this incredible 2011 adrenaline trip covering 2,500 km along the Croatian coast.
The World’s Biggest Welcome, an ambitious adventure tourism project in 2011 in Croatia enters Day 29 of this 2019 appreciation of one of the finest tourism promotion projects ever in Croatia.
The plan? To showcase the diversity and fabulous offer of adventure tourism in Croatia by following a GPS route the length of the Croatian coast in the shape of the word ‘Welcome’ – thereby creating the biggest welcome in the world from a hospitable tourism country.
Day 29 moved from Zadar to Sali by kayak and on foot.
27 kilometres for the day: 6 km from Zadar to Kali by kayak, followed by 3 km on foot from Kali to Ugljan Plaža, before another 18 km kayak ride from Ugljan Plaža to Sali to continue forming the ‘C’ in ‘Welcome’.
Day 29 started on the Zadar Riva.
Where Lacko also got to spend time with his nephew, Petar.
The media even came out to see Lacko off to his next destination.
