I have been relying far too much on others' opinions of what my travels should look like, what I should do, where I should go, what I should eat, what the "must see" places are. This morning I woke up and decided that I was going to have a day where I just did whatever I felt like all day long. Today that meant climbing up to the top of this hill in Split (great views by the way) and reading. After the 15/20 minute climb I sat for an hour and read, spaced out, generally just relaxed. After I came down off the mountain I felt like a coffee. Then, I felt like taking a walk around the basement of Diocletian's palace. Everyone said, "Eh, you don't need to do that. It's not that interesting you aren't missing anything." I wanted to do it anyway. And I'm glad I did. It was creepy and historical. Historically creepy. And no one else was doing it so I had the entire basement level of this sweet palace to myself. And this happened all before noon (I woke up early... it happens sometimes) so after walking the long way back to the hostel I did nothing. Not true. I watched the documentary Babies and then started (actually) researching graduate programs for International Education (Policy).
Overall good day. Just thought I would share! And pictures of course:
