Croatia was one of the funniest adventures of all time. First we had to spend the night at the Cologne airport, which I thought was really going to suck…but I was wrong.  I was sitting in a random chair and next thing I know this guy sat down next to me. He was on the professional men’s volleyball team! I made friends with the team and actually went and saw one of their games. 

The first day of exploring Split was beautiful. The people here have overall been really nice. I have been eating so much seafood. NOM. We hiked up this huge hill and found a zoo. Yes, zoo is a universal word. It was absolutely hilarious because their zoo was basically a farm and then a tiger and a bear.  Oh yeah they had 2 monkeys too. The kinds of animals they had there were bunnies, goats, horses, donkeys, chickens…ect. It also turned into a petting zoo because the animals came to you when you called them. HILARIOUS

We also went to Dubrovik. It is one of the most beautiful cities in the world. We hung out all day in the old city. On our way back we were not so lucky. We got on the wrong bus and they kicked us off at border control. We hung out at border control until another bus came... mind you this is at around 10 at night. That happened to be the last bus and it was not going to take us home. That bus took us as far as it could without passing Split. We then got off on the side of the interstate at a toll booth and were told to "either sleep on the side of the road or
hitch hike home. So we hitch hiked. We finally made it home around 3 am.

There are cats everywhere in Croatia. I found a kitten and of course had an allergic reaction. No meds, no pharmacy, no hospital... I just let my face be swollen and suffered.

Also Right before we left, I fell down a marble staircase. I have not been this sore in a long time. I definitely have many bruises to prove it.
