We flew out of Chicago around 9:45pm Sunday and flew for about 10 hours, landing in Istanbul for about an hour and a half, but by the time we got off one plane and made it to our next gate, our wait was only about 20 minutes. We then flew another 1 hour 45 minutes on to Zagreb, landing about 7:30pm Zagreb time (1:30 pm Michigan). Both flights went smoothly. When we arrived in Zagreb, Natalie was at the airport to meet us and had already checked us in to our Airbnb. We took 2 Uber’s and unloaded our things and met the apartment owner, then went and walked around Zagreb, mainly Upper Town. There are TONS of sidewalk bars and restaurants, and several outdoor venues with singers/bands. We stopped for a drink at a bar called Carpe Diem then headed back to our apartment to switch SIM cards in our phones and relax a bit. On the way back, we bought delicious red cherries from a street vendor. As I write this it’s almost midnight in Zagreb, which is only 6pm in Michigan, but we’re exhausted from travel and heading to bed,
So excited to be here - love it so far! :)
