It’s late August and I am in Croatia’s capital city with my boyfriend. It’s hot and I feel exhausted. I am finding it hard to enjoy this trip, for some reason I feel too stressed, too displaced, too rushed. I curse myself for deciding to travel south in the summer. I know I am not good with heat, not even a little bit, but here we are. I keep forgetting my needs.
Anyway, we have to explore the city now, we are just here for a couple of days and I don’t want to ruin the trip for my boyfriend. We have a Zagreb Card which gives us free entry to some cool stuff. We already visited the Zagreb City Museum, but I must admit, it was mainly so we could hide from the heat. Otherwise we would have preferred to walk around outside instead of closing ourselves in a museum for hours. In the evening we go to the Zagreb Eye – a tall building in the centre with a bar on top and a full view of the city. Searching for places up high is something we always do when travelling and it never disappoints. And, of course, once there, after some wine and a lot of looking outside, even I have to admit that it would be okay if we stayed a little bit longer.
