With today being another travelling day, it was a matter of getting quick bites to eat for breakfast and lunch whilst on the go. However before we move on to this barbecue, a special mention to funnily enough… a complete stranger!
We’ve come to realise that in some countries that we are visiting, card payments aren’t taken in a lot of places. Even in what appear to be national chains of shops, restaurants, or in our case this morning, a bakery, we are faced with “sorry, cash only.” Although there has always been a cash machine nearby, it is at times pretty annoying.
When told we couldn’t pay with card this morning, it was an even greater pain than normal because this would be our last purchase in Zagreb, and with them having their own currency, it meant we would end up paying far more than we’d like just for a simple coffee and croissant each.
We knew the machines only gave out cash in 100 kouna notes, and our bill came to 44 kouna. That’s about £7 difference, and when travelling for a month, every little counts! But as we were about to walk out and get cash, an English lady sat eating her breakfast overheard. As she was also about to leave the country with spare cash she wasn’t going to use, she stopped us in our tracks and handed us a 50 kouna note.
Legend! The world needs more people like this. We were so grateful!
Moving on and when we’d arrived at Hostel Celica, our home for the next two nights, we noticed an all you can eat bbq sign in the reception, and we were sold!
All pretty self explanatory, but they do these bbq’s every Wednesday and Saturday, along with a different theme almost every night of the week. Freshly cooked and served in the outdoor seating area, it went down perfectly with a beer and cocktail from their bar.
