Sunday in Opatija

We had the afternoon to ourselves so my husband and I walked along the waterfront in Opatija and through some of the parks. We returned to the hotel in the late afternoon.
In the evening the tour had planned its farewell dinner and we were dressing up. By digging down into the depths of my suitcase I unearthed the only dressy outfit I’d brought along. Since my husband and I had been traveling for a month and had only brought a carry-on sized suitcase each, there wasn’t much I hadn’t already worn and washed many times. In fact I normally award myself points if I wear everything I’ve packed and this time I’ve earned my points.
When we all met in the lobby it was apparent that everybody else had made a effort to look good too. We walked to the restaurant talking about things we’d enjoyed over the course of the tour and then went in to dinner. I wandered around taking photos of the people that we’d been traveling with for the past 2 weeks, feeling a little sad that it would soon be over. You make friends traveling with people and then never see them again. One of those “life is fleeting” moments I guess. Anyway all those photos are here in case anyone from the tour sees them. My husband and I enjoyed traveling with you and getting to know you all.
