Monday 2 Oct
It has been a few days since the last blog and well please be patient---my mind is a little fuzzy as I write this!
The time in Split was pretty good. The main thing was to really just separate myself from traveling. I hit that 2 month point where you get really tired of feeling required to see all the sites and do everything---plus that overwhelming thought process of having no security. So basically I needed to chill in a serious way.
What to say about Split. Well in the Lonley Planet that it was described as one of the ugliest cities in Croatia....now I wonder what they will say about Calgary!!! haha, we stuck to the "pretty street" and had a reallly nice time. It seems that Split is a very young city with many young families and small babies. There is a lovely walkway right in the harbour with many cafes and parks...ooooh yah----soooo ugly!!!!
On a day trip to Hvar we actually did realize what the lonley planet was talking about. That was that and we packed our bags and off we went to Hvar for the next step in the journey. Leanne managed to get a great price on a really nice room. Our view is of the sea and some islands---just great.
What to say about Hvar---it is just beautiful. It is still really hot hear but because it is low season it is pretty quiet. But as great as Hvar is to look at...really I am not a huge fan. The people here arent the greatest----to say it nicely. I love the island and the natural beauty but the people here walk around with a huge chip on their shoulder. I think that it has become this way because Hvar is very popular with the celebs...and name dropping has to go on. But really I think it is a joke. So if I just stick to hitting the beach, taking walks, and chillin in cafes I love Hvar---but once I go to the clubs and deal with the staff I go bananas.
I do have to say though----last night was a good night and we did go to a private party. But this was after much time dealing with the beautiful staff working at the club...as I cringe in pain. But last night was the end of season party and now everything is pretty much packed up. Tomorrow I MAY head up to Slovenia before going to Rome---we will see because I am feeling slightlz Croatiad out....
While Croatia has such beauty and splendour what it seriously lacks is sincere kindness.
Those are my thoughts and I am stickin to it!
