Hello from Croatia
And already day 3 here in Croatia. Time is flying as usual. Left JFK on Wednesday night and the flight to Munich was pretty uneventful. I got lucky and the seat next to me was empty so I was able to stretch out a bit more and was able to doze off for some of the flight. Had a long connection in Munich which was ok because last year after my initial flight being delayed I barely made my connection so it was ok to have a long connection and not need to stress about that. I bought myself a smoked salmon panini and a tea and just hung out until my next flight to Trieste, Italy. My parents picked me up at the airport and we drove to Croatia. Stopped on the way in Slovenia for lunch. The hotel/resort we are staying at in Croatia is right across the bay from Piran, Slovenia and you can see the old city in the distance from our balcony. Lovely ocean views. The resort itself is not very full due to it being off season still but that's ok. Less crowded that way.
Yesterday, Friday, we went to lunch in the port of Savudrija. Hung out there for quite a while, ordering appetizers (scallops & pasta stuffed with shrimp and truffle oil), a huge shellfish platter & a fried fish platter as well as cappuccino and wine. When we got back to the hotel my parents decided to take an afternoon nap and I ventured back out to another restaurant close by (about 15 min walking distance) for some gelato and a white wine spritzer. Had the most gorgeous views from their terrace. Unfortunately their credit card machine wasn't working and I only had my credit card on me, no local currency. But they were fine with that and just gave me the bill, telling me to come back and pay later. So we will end up having lunch there today. :)
Today I slept in a bit (still trying to shake this jetlag) and am now sitting outside on the balcony catching up on a few things, like my blog, Instagram, etc. Also have a couple emails to write so maybe I will try and do that. In the morning the sun doesn't shine on the balcony yet so it's a bit cool but really not bad. It's already close to 70F now, going to get up to 76F later. The weather has been most gorgeous. Supposed to be really nice tomorrow as well, then cool down a tiny bit but still very nice. Especially considering the weather that I came from. Just about perfect here. Palm trees, the ocean, wine, what more can you want?
