Fate and work swept me to this resort during the coronavirus. It's smaller resort. Our journey began with the order of our boss and the need to resolve certain matters with our business partners. So I could no longer avoid the situation of visiting it. We planned the trip through Hungary, as the Slovenians had certain restrictions associated with crossing their border. The virus brought different changes and unfortunately also complications at the borders. Thanks God it wasn't like that at the border crossing Letenye - Goričan. Although we stood for a while, the transition was completely smooth.
Because along the way we broke about all the regulations that it was possible and even possible to violate which are still being invented, we were in Tučepi quite fast. On the way, we stopped for an abundant dinner, for my taste too abundant in one restaurant by the highway.
The rest areas were full of local tourists flocking to the sea. Not a trace of strangers. Nobody even cares about virus and no face masks, disinfectants, and everything what is obligatory in our country, it doesn't bother anyone there. That's a good news for our tourists, unless of course they are not frightened that they would not even think about the holiday. They may regret it.
We stayed in an apartment house about 50 m from the sea. The accommodation was very pleasant, even better than some of us have at home. The next morning was our task to meet business partners and take over the possibilities of current solutions of the situation. It was a very demanding day, as everyone needs to spend some time with for a while and to talk. In the end, our visit was not so effective. We have not resolved half the stuff or we have reached a negative conclusion. Probably the most intense experience was an X-course dinner where we literally ate ourselves until the bursting, as a guy who invited us would be offended if we left something on the plate. Special character!
