... had organized for Doug (another climber from Georgia in the states) to join us. I had said I was happy to lie on a beach anywhere and thought it would be nice to have some downtime. Friday morning started with Justine and myself meeting up with Doug in Old Town and confirming a car/shuttle taxi to Sveta Nedilja for 400.00 kuna all together as soon as we had finished breakfast (pancakes!!!). It was just the three of us in a people mover tourist ...
... the boat after midnight as its docked up and the captain and other crew need to sleep (obviously). Unfortunately some people don't give a **** and lear up anyway..

... in good fun... Luckily our hostel wasn't very far away from the port however our rooms weren't ready yet so we killed some time by taking in the sights. The girls went out for a nice lunch, once again happy to not be eating pasta or pizza. Whilst the boys, well we don't really know what they did but let's just say the Croatian women are absolutely stunning, so i'm sure they were also taking in 'the sights.'
