August 30-31, 2014 - Saturday, Day 81
After our final breakfast, address swapping, and heartfelt goodbyes, the reluctant-to-leave passengers disembarked from the Adriatic Queen by 9:30. We had packed a small overnight bag for our one night stay in an AirBnB in Split, and then dropped off the rolling backpacks in a locker at the bus station for pickup the following day.
Once we were luggage free we walked into the old town and palace of Split, visiting sites, sipping lattes in the palace square, catching up on the Internet, decompressing from our wonderful trip. Later in the day, we checked into our Airbnb room within a 10 minute walk from old town, bus station and swimming beach. Once we checked in, we went to the beach for a last swim in the Adriatic. I think I was the only woman on the beach in a one piece bathing suit. Regardless of age and size, women were wearing two piece, skimpy suits. Doesn't leave much for the imagination. Some things really should just be covered up.
After all the food we consumed in the last week, we were content with cups of soup, crackers, and fresh tomatoes in our room before lights out.
Sunday, Day 82
After or DIY breakfast of yogurt and granola in our room, we headed out for the bus station, picked up our baggage, and boarded the express shuttle bus to the airport. Compared to yesterday, when the bus station was absolutely packed from all of the Saturday disembarkments, today was relatively calm and quiet. The airport on the other hand was quite busy. All the tanned families, old people and young people alike were sadly heading home.
While we waited for our Air Serbiia flight with one layover in Belgrade, we ate lunch. Later when we were in Belgrade, Serbia we ate dinner before boarding our flight to Ljubljana, Slovenia. We are currently in route to Slovenia, same plane, same crew we had flying into Belgrade. By the time we land, pickup our rental car and get to our AirBnb it will most likely be 9:30 p.m.
It's been a long day.
