SPLIT- VIS TRAVEL BLOG by Tvrtko Tomašić, 1 HTa
Our first school trip started early on a Sunday morning. The bus waited for us near our school. Even though the morning hours were not so good, the bus ride was enjoyable. In the early morning hours, I had troubles with my stomach. Maybe it was just too early for me and that brought pain in my stomach. After a while, I was feeling better so my classmates and I could have proceeded to enjoy our bus ride. It was around 12 am when we arrived in Split. The place we were visiting first was called Ivan Meštrović Gallery. It was awesome and the beautiful weather made everything look even more satisfying. My friends Luka, Jan, Mario and I have taken some great photos with statues in them. We were there for roughly 1 hour. The statues were very detailed. The artist made bodies of people look very muscular.
So our class moved on, and we finally came to the outskirts of Split. Even though it smelled very badly on the beaches, the whole panorama of the city was awesome. The tour guide then showed us most of the city centre, and we visited parts of the spectacular Diocletian palace. I noticed that many people from other countries also came to see what Split and other island destinations have to offer. One of the smaller details I noticed is that there is a Game of Thrones store or a mini-museum that offers many souvenirs and clothes to buy. After 1 hour or so of walking around Split, our teachers allowed us to rest. Before we could go, the teachers split us into groups and we had to do our tasks. I was with Monica, Chiara and Luka. Everyone ate something from one of the bakeries. Luka and I chose to eat pizza and girls had their own choices. Then came the time to board the ferry and go to Vis. It was sometime in the early evening hours when we boarded the ferry. By midnight we arrived at our hotel.
The next morning we went around the island. The tour guide said that many popular people from sports, film and the army lived there and some still live today. On top of the island, I took some panorama photos for the school photo contest. By 5 pm we came back to the hotel. We did not do much. We ate, rested, talked and ran around the hotel. It was pretty fun. I shared the room with my classmate Niko. He loves sports, games and some other things, so we had a lot in common to talk about. We talked about football and sometimes about games for Playstation. And so the third day came, we went to the Blue Cave where we could see how blue the water was. Well, the water is not blue but it has such a look because of the reflection of the sun through the water.
Before we came to the cave we had the pleasure to ride on one of the best tourist ships that Komiža can offer. The captain of the ship sang some traditional songs from where he was born. The Blue Cave was not so special for me, but the others were amazed. We were there only 5 minutes. I took some nice photos, but the water was dirty, full of feathers and other waste that the sea currents brought in. The most awesome thing about the whole trip to Biševo was the sandy beach in Porat on the southern side of the island. Around 20 students went swimming, including me. There were absolutely no rocks or something on what we could get our feet hurt. Back at the ship, the captain’s wife made us homemade tuna and some potatoes. It was, as always, delicious to try new things. Back at the hotel, we ate dinner and went to sleep afterwards.
The last day, we went again to the city of Vis where we visited the school of Vis and ate at the local restaurant. My friends and I ate some pizza, and Luka had to remove the mushrooms from the pizza because he didn’t like them. I talked with many people, including our teachers and some senior students. Around four o’clock we got on a ferry and went back to Split. It was calm and sunny weather, so we did not experience any troubles. The bus was already awaiting us when we arrived in Split, so we could immediately begin our journey back to Zagreb. Paklenica was where we experienced the worst weather ever; the bus was in the middle of a storm. Lightning was everywhere around us. It was exciting and we managed to get through without any trouble. It was kind of a boring drive home, but yet funny with my friends around. We arrived in Zagreb at around 11 pm. Everyone was tired. When I saw my father waiting for me at the bus station I hugged him and felt happy just to be home with my parents. We came home fast, and I was hungry and sleepy. Knowing I have to go to school tomorrow, I ate a quick dinner, brushed my teeth and jumped into bed to enjoy a good night rest.
