Travel days where I have nothing to do are few and far between, but this one was especially wonderful since I had a beautiful beach and a spa to enjoy for the day.
Lynn and I had been traveling through Croatia for nine days. Although I wouldn’t have done anything different, we were still exhausted.
The Hotel Split was on a breathtaking beach and, since it was during the week, pretty quiet.
We had every intention of taking advantage of that time in Split.
We enjoyed breakfast at the hotel with an amazing view. It was a pretty typical European breakfast for me of yogurt, fruit, cheese, and a croissant.
It’s odd how I like variety so much at home, but always seem to stick to this in Europe.
After breakfast, we spent the morning walking and lounging on the beach. The Adriatic Sea was especially beautiful from Split and just gazing at it from different angles was a treat.
When we arrived at Hotel Split, I saw the spa specials and noticed that the Hot Oil Aromatherapy Massage was very cheap (about $30 for an hour). My muscles had been taxed during the week and it sounded like heaven.
Lynn agreed, but unfortunately they only had room for one appointment. She graciously let me take it.
I left the spa and was back looking at the turquoise sea when we both decided to take a walk and find something to eat.
We found a Croatian bakery nearby and got some pastries filled with cheese that were more than satisfying. Before heading back to the beach.
As much as I like relaxing, I’m not one to just lay on a lounge chair for hours. After a while I got up to explore the rest of the hotel.
I went up to the rooftop and was so glad I did. The Hotel Split rooftop has a pool and lounging areas. It also has a view that was even more spectacular than the ones I had seen in the morning.
We had just a little longer before we had to get dressed, pack up, and head to Zagreb. Our Croatia adventure was coming near its end.
