I have always wanted to travel to Croatia! Studying in Europe this fall semester has really given me the opportunity to travel!! At the beginning of October, myself and two other exchange students from the Hague went to Zadar, Croatia!
It was quite an experience getting there though I must say. We actually did not fly out of Amsterdam, we scheduled a flight out of Brussles, Belgium because the flights for RYANAIR airlines were MUCH cheaper! Sitting here in Holland waiting for a train to Brussles, we hear an announcement saying that the train to Brussles was cancelled! We began to panic and started hopping on any trains heading that way! We somehow ended up in Rotterdam (which has a lot more international trains passing through) and found a Thalys train (which is a French train) that was heading to Paris but stopping in Brussles. We begged the conductor to let us on even though we did not have the correct train tickets. After explaing about our cancelled train and about how we have a flight to catch, out of the kindness of his own heart, he said we could get on but we had to sit on the floor in the back by the luggage! We all sat there for the 2 hour train ride to Brussles! After literally running to catch out plane we sat down and looked at eachother and just laughed! WHAT AN EXPERIENCE!
Croatia was absolutely beautiful. It was unlike anything I had ever seen before. We visited Plitvice Lakes which is the National Park with mountains, lakes, rivers, and WATERFALLS! Such a site! I will remember this trip for the rest of my life!
Hopefully my pictures will be available to see on the B-Blogger dashboard! 🙂
