It’s funny how a few hours of travel can move you from one world to the next.
We had our last breakfast together then bid goodbye to the last of our swim trek friends.
Much hugging and exchanging of emails and promises of meeting up again. And we will definitely catch up.
The ferry ride back to Zadar took about 20 minutes – and we all decided we’d rather like to swim the crossing – “only” 3 km.
Then to the bus station and onto the bus for Zagreb. The buses here are great. Only 13 euro and free wifi!
We were in Zagreb by 2.49 and booked into the Palace Hotel. It’s a big old hotel with some lovely public spaces.
The parks are beautiful. We crossed into them and found a bandstand with great music – recorded – and little food stalls all around with different types of tables & chairs.
Then we started wandering the streets looking up and down.
The buildings are a mix of old decorated buildings, plain communist style buildings, ones covered with painted claddings hiding the renovations, and some rather garish modern buildings.
Then we planned our day tomorrow and our dinner tonight!
