Sorry, it has been a bit since our last blog. Katie showed and we cannot seem to leave the pubs. Budapest was beautiful. Buda was very quaint and we had a great adventure there.
We decided to visit the underground labyrinths that housed 10,000 people during the Cold War and also in WWI. Many parts are very spooky and while trying to scare Julia, Sarah managed to scare two Spanish couples. As revenge when we got up the guts to go through the courage room a maze pitch black with a rope on the edge to guide your way, they held the door to the exit shut. You can imagine the screams heard throughout underground Buda but when finally realeased the man had tears in his eyes from laughing.
We took and early flight to Dubrovnik where we were told our room was only 400m away, but we forgot to notice that Dubrovnik is built on a cliff and 400m was actually about 2 miles uphill....WITH packs on. We walked around the old town and a nearby beach for the afternoon and called it an early night with wine and homemade dinner.
The next day was one of Dubrovniks 12 days of rain but it left as fast as it came. We wandered upon a deserted swimming hole and jumped in just before the storm broke. We ran into a makeshift shelter which ended up being a clubhouse for 5 or 6 men 65 years+, in speedos, rehashing their youthful days. Free beers for the California girls and hugs from Ivan "the terrible". When asked if they go everyday, they replied "NO, just in the mornings and afternoons" Oh, right then.
Good night out with fellow backpackers that we have met along the way and left this morning for Split. VERY BEAUTIFUL!!! More tomorrow. Miss everyone!
