Absolutely delicious meal — short ribs — with a beer and coffee while planning the rest of my trip in Croatia.

I arrived in Zagreb via Budapest mid day with a large appetite, a need for some caffeine, and absolutely no idea what my plan was for Croatia. What you see above, along with the beer — why not? — was the perfect way to solve all those crises. I put the following must-dos on my list: Plitvice Lakes National Park, Dubrovnik, Split, and Hvar, with a few other things that I categorized in the ‘if I find the time’ category. With my trip reasonably planned out, and on a full belly, I did the walking tour that the tour book outlined. The first stop was their outdoor market:

One of the biggest outdoor markets in Croatia. Lots of fresh fruit really cheap.

The walking tour continued to the ‘Museum of Broken Relationships’, an obscure museum full of artifacts and stories from strangers’ previous relationships, and eventually this neo-gothic cathedral at one of their main squares.

After touring the city, and a daytrip to Plitvice, it was time for a night of partying. The hostel I stayed at produced their own Rakia…which is a Croatian alcohol that I would say is somewhere between rum and vodka. I was asked by someone staying there to tell them which flavor was the best. As I hadn’t yet tried them, I decided to take down all seven at once. Gaucho Pride!

After that, the pub crawl commenced and we eventually made out way to their chief nightclub: History. Which is a great way to describe that night.
