I actually arrived in Croatia, I know, finally right? The Munich flight was delayed by a couple hours, but not cancelled. Because of the delay, Brooke, Mike, and I couldn’t explore Munich – we wouldn’t have enough time. However, we did experience some German culture. I ordered white sausages and a pretzel which was pretty good at a restaurant in the airport. We all ordered German beer as well which easily was the beer I have ever had in my life. I don’t even like beer and it was amazingly smooth.
The flight into Croatia from Munich was beautiful: rolling hills, light blue water, and lush greenery. The whole experience almost seemed unreal to me. I think it really hit me that I was here, in Europe, when all the other study abroad students and I went to the beach and swam in the Adriatic Sea. Tasting the salt, feeling the cool water, watching the sunset – it was absolutely unreal.
After swimming, all of us met up with some other RIT students that happened to be in Croatia and went to a quaint restaurant by the sea. I ordered a seafood platter to try a little bit of everything, however, when my dinner came I was a little shocked. Everything still had its head, legs, you name it. Us Americans are so spoiled when it comes to ease of eating. Because I was so unused to everything being whole, I ended up getting a small fish bone stuck in my throat. The little bastard was pricking my throat every time I swallowed until the next morning when it fell out randomly.
Wifi is incredibly terrible here (trash tier, that’s for you Philip) in Dubrovnik, coming and going at the worst times. I’ll never take for granted steady, reliable wifi ever again. In regards to these blog posts, I will try to post whenever I can get decent wifi.
