As promised, the last leg of my journey.
Croatia was unbelievable. I spent my last hours there walking the fortress walls of Dubrovnik and snapping picture after picture that could easily be a postcard.
I left from the Dubrovnik airport to Stockholm solo. I watched my last European sunset in Sweden (which didn’t occur until around 10 PM). Finally, I arrived at the airport to find out that my flight from Sweden to Iceland had been delayed 2 hours. This was unfortunate because my layover there happened to be less than 2 hours. For some unknown reason, the plane in Iceland decided to wait for me and the other travelers coming from Sweden through Iceland to Newark. Although I was a little later than planned, I made it to NJ where my friends were waiting for me!
A few days spent at the Jersey Shore were filled with swimming, laying out, trips to the boardwalk and fires with the best s’mores ever (replace chocolate with Reese’s cups!).
I made it up to the lake just in time for my sister’s graduation party. Now I have spent the last few days getting into the summer lake routine: sleep-swim-boat-picnic-fire-sleep-repeat.
Admittedly, it’s nice to be home. At the end of my trip I was getting a little worn out from traveling all the time and living out of a small suitcase. I’m glad to be home and get back into my boring home routine.
So after exactly 5 months of being in Europe, I am finally home. Although I saw a lot (including 11 countries), I keep finding myself thinking about the things I didn’t get to see. Looks like I’ll have to plan another Europe trip in the near future!
