Day 86 – The road home

The Journey Home

Today I started in Montenegro, spent a little time in Croatia, and then ended the night in England.

I was on my way home but first I had to get to Manchester as my Air Transat flight leaves from there to Vancouver tomorrow at noon.

Getting to Manchester involved a bus, another bus, a plane and then a train.

At 2pm, my journey started as I caught a bus from Budva across the border back to Dubrovnik in Croatia.  I got into Dubrovnik with just enough time to stop for dinner where I had yet another mixed grill of various meats.  From there I took an airport shuttle bus to catch my 8pm flight to Manchester.

The temperature when I left was about 30 degrees but that dropped to 6 degrees when I landed in Manchester 3 hours later.  From the airport I took a train downtown and, after a brisk walk, I was at my hostel here in Manchester.

It was almost midnight when I arrived at the hostel and after settling in real quick I headed out to get my last dinner in Europe.

I would love to tell you it was an amazing meal but, alas, at midnight in Manchester there’s not much open.  It was also cold and wet plus I was tired and ready for bed.  So, my last dinner in Europe consisted of a lamb kebab and a Pepsi.  Oh well.  I actually took time to think back at some of the amazing meals I’ve had here in the last 3 months and that brought a huge smile to my face.

By 2am I was in bed ready to get tomorrow here.  In less than 24 hours I’ll be home!
