So itinerary changed after hours of planning with paper and pencil last night because I don’t feel like changing trains umpteen times in the middle of the night. No visit to Split, Croatia. From Rijeka (please don’t ask me to pronounce it!) to Zagreb, then on to Budapest for a couple of days. I’ll be in a primarily Muslim country on Easter so might have a chance of finding lodging. Holy Week in mostly Catholic countries is scary, from what I’ve heard: no rooms, all shops and stores closed on Easter, including restaurants and groceries. I have food in my day pack and will make sure I have something to eat all along the route, not only because of Easter but because train food is mediocre and expensive. Cost me $13 for a microwaved cheeseburger and a bottle of water on the trip down from Paris.
A big boo-boo on my train pass, which can’t be changed. So either the conductor will toss me off the train or will ignore me. It’s a fairly local mistake so maybe I’ll get away with it. Keep fingers and other body parts crossed.
