Zadar is my Ziel

to see the most beautiful sunset ( according to Alfred Hitchcock)

I was really quite sad to leave the house and was determined that i would come back again in the summer as i wanted to just hang and swim in the beaches again :)

I made my way to Trogir where i had to take another bus to Sibenik where i would meet my next host Boris from Zadar.
I had about 30 mins till the bus was scheduled to arrive. It was too short to explore the city and a little pointless to explore the supermarket carrying my heavy bag around. I decided to try my luck again to hitch ( no harm since i had time :) )

I couldnt believe it when someone really stopped ( It wasnt a proper hitching point ! )
He wasnt going to Sibenik but could drop me in the next city which was nearer and i though well, lets just follow the wind :)
He was a really friendly guy and after chatting for 10 mins, he realised that i hadnt tried some local croatian meat and said that we had to make a detour to his house where his friend would prepare some for me. I was really excited but also a little worried as i didnt want to be late in meeting Boris. We soon arrived in his house and i me this friend and had the opportunity of trying this special meat haha.
Then he said we had to take a short detour to go see him little boat as he wanted to sell it. Along the way he was telling me incredible stories of how his friend and him would work in the summer in fishing boats, catching incredible fishes and lobsters and selling them at absurd prices, making so much money in that few months to last the whole year. The whole time having a really great time and eating fresh seafood :)
I was a little jealous of his life haha, but he did admit that it was absolutely boring during the winter and one could almost go crazy as there was little to do at his place and his " small town"
Everything worked out well in the end as suddenly he decided to drive me all the way to Sibenik and dropped me off at a petrol kiosk where Boris was waiting at :)

Boris was a really nice, generous and well travelled guy. The first thing he did was take me for a really big meal which i could not finish :(
( My Appetite had decreased alot, it happens everytime i travel due to irregular meals and portions as well as lack of exercise)

After settling down, Boris brought me for a tour around the little Zadar and its beautiful coast. ( Actually the entire croatian coast is amazing )

I had a lot of talks with Boris and we also watched some movies together, i also managed to find out more about the Yugoslav wars from him as he was one of the soldiers fighting in the war.

It time to fly back to Munich again, it was a really short trip but also a really fun one too, with many new food and more nice people :)
Thank God for this wonderful world :)

On a sidenote: Excluding my handcarry (Laptop, some food and documents) This was the weight of all my luggage. Travel light=travel far= travel fast :)))
