Just thought I would let you know….apart from the fact, I have Internet, and that I am on the bus, how to leave me messages….should you want.

Before I leave you, we nearly didn’t make it on time. We managed to get on the correct ferry number, but going wrong way. Well it was ok , because we got to see lots more of the island and we had allowed time for mishaps. Arrived at station, managed the self service ticket.machine. Amazing . Have 4 tickets. Ask for right platform. Find train. Oops Madam, they are not validated. Wait for conductor to sign and date each ticket. Dash onto train as the doors close. Arrive at station for bus, desperate for loo. Oh dear, some of us have to resort to Maccas ,so we all can go without paying. ( $2 each)
What a sacrifice! We had a healthy tuna roll and some fries. To get this we had to queue up at a counter .order……not sure what we are getting because no English, and sadly no Italian from me either, as long as it is not shrimp or lobster, we’re OK. Pauline got the fries for us…a different queue. Cheers Suzanne
P.S. We are in a traffic jam. You don’t get them on a train. Is there a train to Zagreb?
Certainly there is a change in scenery as we leave the vineyards for crops and grazing lands. Trieste is perched on a hill near the sea, and it is as you go inland ,that you notice the most changes. Houses and apartments are only a few stories high. Villages are more compact and there is usually a church or building with a tower/ steeple at its heart. The land appears to be drier and there are more trees even forests.
We are here. As we crossed the border between Slovenia and Croatia, we all had to leave the bus and present our passports to officials. One stamp out ,and one stamp in ,now back on the bus.
Tomorrow we will introduce you to Zagreb.
