The End Of Croatia Is Nigh

It’s not imminent – I will still be staying here tonight at some point along the coast – but I can see the end and finally another country. It seems such a long time since I crossed from Montenegro into Croatia. It’s actually only a week but it’s been a long haul of a week. Slovenia is next up and then… Italy where I hope to be staying tomorrow evening. The picture below is taken from the ferry from Pag back onto the mainland.

    Gatorade is full of colorants and other chemicals not good for your body. Here is a very simple recipe:
    1 Lt of water
    8 Teaspoons of Sugar (For Glucose)
    1 Teaspoon of Salt (For Sodium)
    1/2 Cup of pure orange juice, not from concentrate (For potassium and Taste)
    Shake it well and take it in a period of 2 to 4 hours.

    45 minutes of exercise will make your body loose 3.5 pounds of “liquids” a.k.a Water (in that water we are loosing salt, thats why sweat taste salty) Salt (sodium) is very important for hydration. Have you heard that salt make’s you retain water? well its true. follow this simple recipe and you will feel better pretty soon and don’t forget to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.

What do you think?
