To take a break from school and treat myself to a stress free, adventure-filled getaway, I decided that two days after graduation I would jet off to Europe. This entailed starting off with a few days in Prague, then taking a train to Vienna, followed by a bus to Germany, a bus to Slovenia and finally a long ass bus ride to Croatia where we spent several days in both Split and Dubrovnik. The trip, 16 days long, a compilation of 5 countries, and a colorful group of friends, was absolutely amazing and everything that I had hoped for.
Every morning we would wake up and have a wholesome breakfast followed by lots of exploring. Whether that was walking the city streets, peddling in the open air markets, white water rafting, canyoning and more, every minute spent abroad seemed to be bursting with new adventures. These adventures were always followed by a rich lunch and the day was completed with an even heartier dinner. We were able to catch a lot of pastel sunrises and intense, fiery sunsets, go out to bars and clubs and experience *legal* European nightlife and overall do as our hearts pleased.
The food however, did not drop the ball and I found myself filling up on rich, savory traditional dishes such as Wiener Schnitzel and grilled Slovenian fish and mouthwatering, delicious desserts like gelato, cream cake, and trdelnik. I was able to chow down at every meal everyday and it was wonderful (and it didn’t break the bank either which is a huge plus!)
