Today we woke up early. It was again hard to get out of the bed, mainly because I had to much drinks last night. Sleepy as we were we forgot to ask a picnic at the restaurant and so we boarded the 'ship' with a slightly lighter backpack than usual. The trip took us an hour, but we passed the time sunning on deck.

Lopud is the second and middle-biggest island of the Elafiti group. After wondering around a little we passed a small alley, with a road sign saying "Fort". So, a quest for the fort it was. The climb was heavy. And as we couldn't see the fort in the distance we had no idea of how long the walk would be. It took as far more time than we expected but we reached the top and below us we could see the small beach we came from. The way back down went easier, and hungry we arrived back in the city.

We found ourselves a restaurant close to the water, and the people here were friendly as well.

Normally, our food would have been served with a salad. But in Belgium, when you go to a restaurant, apart from the fish and the salad you also get some fries, rice or potatoes, whatever. So we asked some fries as well. For the people in Lopud, however, this obvious was strange. They had served bread with the food, but they brought it 30 minutes earlier and so we had eaten that already with the tapas we ordered. In the end, they brought us fish and fries, but no salad... But hey, the restaurant was close to the water, the people were friendly, I was our mistake and we were starving. So we didn't really bother.

Lopud truly is a beautiful island. We walked around some more after lunch, visiting some gardens, drinking ice-coffee and eating ice-cream again. Than we went back to the hotel early to pack and enjoy our last dinner and bar-night in Croatia.
