Croatia Pt. 2
We woke up this morning to sunshine and smiles! We got ready, had our breakfast and went on our way to head into town.
We had a guided tour that took us around the city and explained the history behind it all. Right at the end of the tour, dark clouds started rolling in and we knew we were in for a good storm. Candace and I headed to a little cafe to grab a coffee when the rain came down in BUCKETS. It wasn’t just a little rain. The storm got so bad, that lightning struck the church across the street and we lost power for a good 20 minutes. We decided we’d get comfy, enjoy a bite to eat before the rain calmed down.
Soon after, the rain calmed down and we figured we had towels on us so we’d go out and explore Croatia while we were there. We got a little wet, and it was FREEZING cold. We were both wearing flip flops, and the ground was super slippery.
We had to meet our group at 12:00 or so to head for our cruise adventure. Turns out, the cruise got cancelled because of the bad weather. It was too rough of water :(. This was probably the adventure i was excited about most on this trip, so I was pretty bummed at this point.
Because the weather wasn’t great, and we got a little bit wet, we headed back to the hostel to have a warm shower, and change into nicer clothes since we were wearing our bathing suits for the cruise.
We then headed back into town to go to a bar that had the most amazing views! This bar was literally on the edge of a cliff and you sat ON the water. literally. you’re over looking it. I have a video that I’ll upload in the next post! We spent a good 2 hours just chatting, drinking beer and enjoying a view that we most likely won’t ever see again.
By this point, we were starving. Our stomachs guided us to this wonderful restaurant where we treated ourselves to an amazing dinner. We sat European style… meaning we sat looking outwards to the street infront of us to “people watch”. We ordered a bottle of white wine for the both us, a delicious cheese spread appetizer and enjoyed a carb full dinner of pasta. It couldn’t have been any better. After being totally loaded from beers and wine, we thought it was a great idea to grab some icecream, walk around and then head back to our hostel.
The day definitely started on a bad note, but the ending made up for it. If Dubrovnik is this beautiful, I can’t wait to see what Split and Zadar have to offer.
