Today, I joined a tour to go visit the plitvice lakes, a stunning marvel of natural beauty. These waterfalls cascade from tier to tier making really beautiful formations of waterfalls.
I met up with a Japanese girl at the hostel and we walked to the meeting point and joined the 30 others on the bus.
We met a girl from New Zealand and then boarded the bus where Miho, our tour guide entertained us with information about Zagreb, Croatia’s capital city, as well as some history.
After our drive, we got our stuff and were a little concerned about the weather as everything told us that we’d be in rain and thunderstorms during our visit. Amazingly, we had beautiful weather, perfect temperatures, with sun peaking through every so often. It was great.
In line, we met a guy from the uk and back up with the kiwi and formed a group of four to do the hike. We enjoyed walking around viewing the beautiful waterfalls and enjoyed the soothing sounds of falling water all around. Half way through was lunch time and we were pleasantly surprised by a rotisserie chicken lunch available for a normal price. We had a great lunch and then continued on our trip which included one of the slowest boat rides ever across the lake to The other side.
We had a great time together and laughed so much throughout everyone’s stories. As we boarded the bus back to zagreb, the rain started to com down as a dark cloud swept above us. We had amazing luck!
