No more wake up calls in our room. Though we do have to take our bags down to the lobby at 9:15 and then get on a bus at 9:30. Not sure if it’ll be a coach bus with another guide or what. But we’re going to a monastery and then I guess we just walk around. Today may be the last day I hang out with the girls but I’m not sure. I’m not excited to have to spend a couple more days with just my grandma and I’m not excited for the super long trip back home. But oh well, I won’t remember any of the bad stuff of this trip later in life. I’ll only remember the good.
Well the monastery was pretty lame to be honest. We drove like an hour or more just to get to it and we stopped an unnecessary amount of times. And the new guide talked the entire time. She knows a lot, I’ll give her that. But still. The drive just didn’t seem worth it. I wish we just did our own thing today. But the monastery was pretty old and I guess it looked pretty cool. We saw a few monks and stuff. It was all a pretty religious place. Lots and lots of information was given to us about it. I don’t think I retained any of it though.
On the way back we went to a restaurant and it was pretty good. I got a chicken fillet. One of the girls ordered a chicken skewer and the waiter asked if she wanted one. She said yes assuming he meant one serving or one plate but when the food came she only had one single skewer. I feel like that happens a lot in Europe. If that sort of thing happened in America the waiter would have asked if they specifically wanted a single skewer. I bet Europeans think we’re so dumb because we ask for stuff that isn’t right because we think they’re saying something else or whatever.
On the way back the bus stopped so people could use the restroom and there was a giant stork nest. There’s a lot of those around here for some reason. We passed a lot that were on the telephone poles. They’re really big and many storks sit in them. It’s kind of cool to see. They may not be storks but whatever. I have no idea.
We finally got to our new hotel and it’s definitely no 4-5 star hotel like we’ve been having, but that’s fine, it’s not that bad. We’re here for two nights. I pretty much layed down and stayed there for the rest of the night. I haven’t rested that much on this trip other than going on the bus. Plus nobody invited me to go anywhere so I just stayed laying down to text my girlfriend for a while. Sort if a boring day. Probably my least favorite day of tge trip but oh well. The trip is almost over and it’s different when we don’t have a set schedule each day.
These past two weeks went by so quickly. Thinking back to staying in Vienna our first couple days it feels like that was so long ago. But thinking about the whole trip as a whole it feels like it went by fast. If the trip will be like it was today then I’m excited to get home. But I’ll still miss Europe when I’m gone. Who knows when I’ll be back.
