Day 27 – Zagreb

Posted on July 23, 2017

Steak! Where’s my steak?! Where’s Armani? He’s on the phone. Too slow. You’re not going to Paris. I’m so much better than you.

Today I opted to stay in for longer in the morning, and planned to head out later in the day, so we could stay out later and catch the sunset at the observation deck. Well that didn’t happen.

We did go out for an early dinner though to a steak/grill restaurant and had some tasty meat. I had two dishes of chicken, because… hungry (and cheap). After that, we walked towards the observation deck, but came across the main square again and saw the seating and preparation for the last concert of the folklore festival which has been going on since we arrived.

So we decided to grab an early seat and wait for it, watch some, and then continue on. We thought it would start at 7pm, but was a while later before it did, so there was no time to catch the sunset, but we stayed a while and watched the concert.

I will try once again on Tuesday to get up there for sunset, as tomorrow we have a long full-day tour we booked out of the city. Expect bigger blog and a lot of photos then (maybe delayed if a lot to process).

Day 12 – Cannes

Posted on July 8, 2017

Oui oui, mon ami, je m’appelle Lafayette.

Another day begins, and a nice slow start this morning. Some fresh baguette, cheese, and eggs for breakfast at the apartment, before walking towards the port to take the ferry to Saint-Marguerite, a small, nearby island.

The island has a trail around the perimeter, which is about 8km long. We picked a direction and started walking, following the trail along the coast, braving the hot sun and enjoying the beaches and views. There were some nice forest trails too, cutting through the island.

After we made it back to the dock, we were in serious need of water, rest (and for me at least, food). We caught the ferry back, and stopped at the same restaurant where we had lunch yesterday, La Pizza Cresci, for a snack and a drink. We shared a pizza and drank copious amounts of water, before heading back to the apartment for a bit.

A short rest (the others did a bit of shopping), and we walked to Grill & Wines for dinner, where we had some nice fancy steaks. No photos of that, was too hungry.
