Last day in Croatia - June 21

On to Bangkok, Thailand!

sunny 86 °F

This morning we got up, packed up our luggage, and headed to breakfast at a place we chose in Old Town. Luckily, it was not on the main street, because with 3 cruise ships and tons of tour buses in town, just getting through the gates was tricky! But once we got off on the side streets (“alleys” is what Nick calls them - but other than size, they have NOTHING in common with American alleys) it was fine. I ordered an omelette - not what I expected but very good!

After breakfast we decided to take a scenic bus tour of Dubrovnik, and so glad we did. We saw some other parts of Dubrovnik and had some amazing views. It was a little (ok, a LOT) scary when we were going uphill, way up high, with chicken-wire-covered rock wall (would that really hold a falling rock?) on one side and a super steep drop off to the sea with a tiny little guardrail (would that really hold a falling bus?) on the other. But I survived. Here are just a few of my pics - more in my photo gallery. Here’s a link if you want more details about what we saw: https://sightseeing-dubrovnik.com/dubrovnik-cabrio-bus-tour/

After that we relaxed in a little park in the shade for a bit, then went and got a gelato in Old Town. Gelato shops here are almost as common as the Tisak, and so good. This one didn’t “present” as well as some we’ve seen, but it looks pretty similar to how they all display.

Then we walked the souvenir shops for a bit, hung out in the shady park again for a while, and grabbed a bite to eat inside the walls again before heading to the airport.

Tonight we fly out at 9pm Croatia time, which is 3pm Michigan time, both on Friday. That will be 2am Saturday in Bangkok. We will fly to Istanbul where we have about an hour and a half layover before heading to Bangkok, where we will land at 3pm Saturday (Bangkok time - it will be 4am Saturday in Michigan). Nudi, our exchange student in 2015/2016, will meet us at the airport, and will travel with us throughout Thailand. Can’t wait to see her! :)
