It was a lazy morning. We sat on our rooftop hostel overlooking the bay with a few pastries from the local bakery and some bad coffee.
It's more of an espresso crowd here in Europe so whenever I'm out of the country, I miss the great American pastime of carrying around a cup of coffee for no reason and wearing giant sunglasses. As much as I don't like the coffee here, is as much as I love the fresh bakeries here. Every corner has a bakery. The closest thing we have is donut shops but I never go to them because I don't want to get stabbed.
We walked to the beach around 11:00 AM to read and take in some sun.
In the afternoon we had all the plans to take a kayak out to sea but then lunch happened. Moules frites, summer salad, and a drink. After that ice cream on a bench. I ain't mad.
Around 5:00PM we climbed to the top of the hill overlooking the bay again and sat there until sunset happened. Many others had the same idea.
This was our last evening in Croatia together.
For dinner we went to the market and picked up some cheese, prosciutto, wine and beer. I had a karlovacko beer and she drank wine from a mini bottle. Going to foreign supermarkets is another one of my favorite city activities. You see so many odd things that suit each country's taste and culture.
At dinner we talked to a couple from Australia that was traveling for a year. Paul and Marine were 4 months in and going to Albania next. I was interested in the logistics of their trip and they were gracious enough to recap things they've probably retold hundreds of times. I was fascinated to hear that Iceland was Marine's favorite country so far.
Iceland, huh? I'll have to add that to the list.
At night we roamed well out of the tourist area into the residential part of Hvar and then went to sleep early. Laetitia had a ferry to catch.
