Today I've had a 13 hour journey from home (London) to Tisno, Croatia🇭🇷. It wasn't supposed to take this long, but I'm grateful.
Firstly, I was offered the window seat by my lovely fellow passenger (which I love so I can get pics📸). I knew the day would be a great one from that point onwards 😁
My flight was a little delayed but by the time I had got through airport security and picked up my luggage in Croatia, I had completely missed my coach connection. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise; as I waited for the next coach, I had a bit of time to charge my phone and grab a bite to eat. I also got to watch the second half of the World Cup Final 😫😢😫 (Side note: I've seen people in great spirits despite Croatia losing the match and lots of camaraderie).
As the coach drove from Split to Tisno along the coast, the later leaving time meant that I was able to capture some stunning sunset images of the coast. Despite me conserving my phone battery by switching it off, and bringing a battery pack (which didn't work) to charge my phone en route, by the time I got off the coach, my battery was at 3%. Just enough for me to book an uber. I called the driver to explain exactly where I was standing and the fact that my phone was dying. At this point, my uber was my only hope of getting to my destination. Otherwise, it was a 90 minute walk in the dark with my luggage. Just as I was about to send a text to my host (who had been wondering where I was) my phone completely died.
So there I was, at a random bus stop with my luggage, no battery on my phone, and a dysfunctional battery pack. (I remained surprisingly optimistic - I had no other option.) When the uber driver came, he said he never usually came to this part of town but as it was the World Cup Final, he had been getting job requests in random locations, and he happened to be completing a job nearby when I booked my uber. He helped me with my bags and kindly let me charge my phone in the car.
I made it to my destination in one piece and just wrote this post from the comfort of my room.
The split down the middle was interesting. It's the result of the ocean waves beating down over the years creating many tide pools. In each of these small micro environments is where I found crabs, clams, mussels and sea anemone. What a fun and cool to place to check out.
