We arrived in Dubrovnik and without knowing where our Airbnb was, we started to wander through a small neighborhood looking for the right street. I noticed a beautiful passionflower in someone’s front yard. When I used to create my own tea, I often sourced my passionflowers from Croatia, so this was a cool thing to see.
We woke up early that morning hoping that we would be able to find a spot on the bus headed to Krka national park. By the time we decided we wanted to go (the night before) it was too late to make reservations, so we had to just show up at the bus station in the hopes that someone overslept and missed the bus.
We woke up the next morning eager to explore more of this amazing city. We had gotten to see a little bit of the city the night before, but now we would have a full day to look around.
While I was in Germany, my girlfriend came and visited me from Thailand for a month. This would be a much needed half-step for her on the way back to the U.S which was sure to be a huge reverse culture shock. We traveled around Europe for a whole month and our final destination was Croatia.
