Started from the bottom now we’re here. At the top of Plitvice Lakes and all I have is Drake running through my mind. Also, it hasn’t stopped raining since we’ve gotten to Plitvice. So we braced the early morning rain and did a 3 hour hike through Plitvice Lakes. I knew it would be a miserable hike, but the views really makes up for it.
It’s a well kept park with paved or wooden trails which makes it really easy for tourists to get around. Luckily we beat most of the late afternoon crowds, otherwise this would’ve been packed with back to back tourists.
By the 16th waterfall, it really loses its awe factor, but it’s still beautiful nonetheless.
“We should do yacht week!”
“Let’s look it up!”
“So the US Virgin Island has yacht week and it’s roughly $1,200 for each person for an entire week.”
“That sounds reasonable.”
“Oh, it also includes a skipper!”
“Great! Let’s book it.”
“Wait, it’s for 11 people. Do we have 11 friends that would want to go on this?”
“I have 3.”
All true words spoken while we hid away from the rain in our cozy countryside cottage. My other friend then shouts from the dining room:
“Who are you people?!”
Apparently the 1%.
Also, as I get older, I appreciate the countryside a bit more than the glitz and glamour that the city has to offer. We stayed in this really cute little cottage for one night. As soon as we arrived at the house, we cranked up the heater and everyone huddled around it. We were wet, cold, and quite miserable from the long drive but I couldn’t have been happier.
