It feels amazing and horrible to be back home. I missed by dog and my boyfriend but other than that I wish I could have seen more.
Back to reality means back to paying bills and going to work. Back to apartment and house hunting with the bf so we can move in together. Working on getting all my transcripts transferred over to a new school here so I can start working toward the nursing program they have now that I know where we will be staying. And I need to starting getting all my annual Dr appts set up since it’s actually been like 2+ years since I did any of that.
Obviously I am actually looking forward to moving in with my BF and getting closer and closer to nursing school is a good thing and I have nothing against health checkups except the copays hahahahaha. It just sucks to come back from vacation and I am super tired, traveling transcontinentally is difficult. Thankfully I work today then have two days off.
Went for a 1 mile walk today with the dog, need to get back to my running.
I will keep posting my Europe trip slowly but surely until it is all done.
Have a good night, talk to you tomorrow!!
Hello Croatia!!! Nothing on my itinerary excursion wise so its all me to wander around. I do know this is a major Game of Thrones place, I think they have filmed here so I may just do my own little GOT walking tour.
Emily decided to accompany me so we slept in a bit then had some breakfast and made our way into town. From where the boat docked it wad about a 20 min walk to ‘old town’ which is one of thr big draws.
Here is the view from our balcony. Not too shabby huh?
Old town! This and the day is where most people were. This is where all the Game of thrones stuff happens
The views were amazing everywhere. Walk five it and it was an amazing view from a different angle, and once you got up on the wall that surrounds old town, forget it. There wasn’t enough time or memory capacity.
The bay, well one of them
Anyone recognize this tower? When the dragons (when they were still babies) were stolen from Calisi (butchered that name right) and locked in that tower when they were on that creepy island. The sorcerer was trying to steal them and she ran around the base of that crazy tall tower and there was like no door then the door moved and all that. Yep, turns out, towers not that tall after all hahaha.
I had Bosnian food for lunch. This was as adventurous as i was willing to get. 2 of the cheeses were good and i almost liked the dried beef hahaha. But the sausage was a no go for me. The bread was amazing though. I didn’t want to be rude so i had them box it up for me and threw it away later. Always need to be careful in foreigner countries, you never know what the local customs are.
Cappachino ice cream! We have left gelato land.
Found coffee right before i got back on thr boat!
Bye Croatia!!! Still can’t believe i have been to Croatia. Very surreal.
By day 5 i needed to relax so while the girls went out i thoroughly enjoyed having the condo to myself and reading pretty much all day.
I took a break from reading to go for a run on the lovely overcast day with some drizzle coming down.
And yes when i say lovely, i mean lovely. The drizzling helped a bit with the temperature.
Though the humiditing mixed with the drizzling led to me dripping sweat.
A lot of it.
After running i enjoyed a delicious simple lunch
Then i contined to read for the rest of the day until the girls got back and we all went to dinner at Duke’s. I had Ahmazing fish tacos!!!
Today was pretty much all traveling. A cab picked me up at 9:45. It took me an hour to get through security, Hawaii’s airport is packed.
Then i spent 5 hours in a plan then a $50 cab ride later i was sitting on my porch waiting for my roommates dad to let me in with the spare key since i somehow didn’t pack mine.
And now i am finally in my own bed so excited to go to sleep.
How was your weekend?
We got up sort of early again and hit Pearl Harbor.
It was definitely a moving experience
My souvenir was a book 😌
After Pearl Harbor we went to a local coffee farm.
They had soooo many different coffee flavors it was insane!! Yes i bought several samples lol
After coffee was had it was time to see where the coffee came from!
First comes the flour
Then green berries
Then red ‘cherries’
After the coffee farm it was Luau time!!
The dancing and entertainment was great but i have to admit the food was lacking for me. Being as i am not eating meat they had 1 fish option and it left a lot to be desired in my opinion. But it was still a great night!
Now for a dilemma, i feel like we have been going going going since we got here, which i understand and enjoy, you want to get in everything you can while you are here. On the other hand to me part of a vacation is taking some time to relax from our hectic everyday lives amd i feel like we haven’t done that and don’t plan to.
Tomorrow is my last full day in Hawaii and the plan for the girls is hitting up a macadamian nut farm, possibly snorkelling then hanging out at a beach and maybe surfing. Those things could be fun but are nothing that i am dying to do. So do i stay at the condo tomorrow and relax or go out with them?
Part of me feels like if i don’t go out with them i am wasting the day but i also feel like I’m going to be exhausted for work and life when i get back if i don’t take the time to rest. Desicions, decisions.
What would you do?
What does your perfect vacation look like?
We got up early to go hiking.
Lots of pretty views on the way
It was up and up with lot
s of stairs
And an undergro
und bunker tunnel
More insane stairs.
We were proud we made it to the top hahahaha.
My calves were burning!!!
Oh wait more stairs.
amazing views were the reward
The we drove around the island looking for a snorkel spot. We never found one. The surf was high and there were jellyfish and cra
zy currents and broken sewage pumps
Dinner was a local brewery that ended up being mostly appetizers. With frivolity insuing.
