Backpacking Central Europe: Zagreb, Croatia
We arrived in Zagreb in the evening and our friend met us at the coach station. He threw us on a tram, yelled at us to get off in 4 stops and met us near his house.
We went in, dropped off our stuff then headed out to grab a bite to eat.
After eating we walked around the city centre a little bit.
We played Settlers of Catan. We hung around for a few hours before heading back to our friends flat.
He set up his couch for us to borrow for 3 nights. It folded down into a double bed.
We were starting to get a little tired from all the travelling so we ended up sleeping in quite a long time. Our friend showed us around Zagreb after we got ready for the day.

Our friend told us a lot of stuff about Zagreb but most of the time he was yanking our chain.
We made sure to hit up all the tourists hot spots in Zagreb like this church behind us.
There was atmospheric music playing in the tunnel.
The next day we woke up and went to get a bake potato from Potato House.
It was a pretty good baked potato with chilli in it.
We walked around looking for cool buildings to take pictures of and Zagreb has lots.
We had some fun taking pictures up on the top of Zagreb.
We looked around and got some photos.
There was a big whale on the side of the building.
We headed back to the town centre.
It turned out to be free so we climbed aboard.
The architecture is Zagreb is really cool.
We really had an excellent time in Zagreb and appreciated our friend hosting us and showing us all the sights. The next day we started on our long journey home to Birmingham. We packed up all our stuff and headed to the bus station where we caught a bus to the airport, then a flight to London Heathrow and finally a Coach to Birmingham.
We had an excellent trip overall thanks to our friends for hosting us in Munich and Zagreb. We found that everything went really smoothly and we were happy with all of the places we choose to stop. We were definitely a bit worn out by the time we got to Zagreb but overall the travelling wasn't too much to handle. We tried to give ourselves time to rest and not be too rushed in each place while making the most of our time everywhere.
This really was a trip of a lifetime for us and we will look back with fond memories of our backpacking/flashpacking trip around this part of Europe.
