Croatia Part III
On our way out of Split we had to hit up McDonald's.
Sadly the Croats haven't discovered the joy of all day breakfast yet. I ordered the McMusli (basically a yogurt parfait) and fried cheese because that felt breakfasty. The boys went with McDonald's classics, chicken nuggets and fries. Croatia does not have diet Coke.
The drive from Split to Biograd na Moru was a little less than two hours and cost us like 20 euros in tolls. We drove through some really long tunnels and let Ezra pee outside rather than use the portalet at the rest stop. Highlight of his trip.
The vibe in Biograd was a lot more relaxed than that of Split (probs because its population is like 2% the size). I wish I could tell you more about Biograd and Zadar but we spent most of this portion of our trip at our resort.
We stayed at a resort called Crvena Luka. The location was really lovely, pine forest meets Adriatic Sea.
The beach was sandy, the sun was sunny, the water was clean and clear. Though practically perfect, this hotel was not without its quirks.
Food for example. I hope you like pizza. And I hope you like waiting. And I hope you don't get hungry after 9 pm or like to snack. One night we almost starved.
And drinks. The bar at the beach had some odd service practices. For example we were told more than once, "we're not doing mixed drinks right now". And they served a lemon wedge with a margarita which is just wrong.
The night of our arrival to Crvena Luka we were to attend a party to celebrate the bride and groom. I started getting ready and couldn't find an iron in our room. I called the front office and they said the resort did not have any irons. Irons were rare in Ireland too but I never thought a resort that thrives on the business of weddings would have the audacity to not have a way for guests to rid their clothes of wrinkles. I'm really particular, even a little obsessive, about wrinkles and lint so this was unforgivable.
Luckily Jack is used to accommodating my minor meltdowns and went for a drive into town. My hero returned and we partied wrinkle-free.
