May 21, 2013 10:30 AM—En route to Zagreb

Yesterday we left Naples and took the train up to the Adriatic coast where we got the ferry in a small town called Ancona. The ferry was great! It was like a scaled-down cruise ship. It was a little smaller and a little less plush than a cruise ship. But, nonetheless, we had our own private room with a bathroom and everything. When we got on and dropped off our bags in the room, we went exploring. The ship had a few different lounge/eating areas and it even had a small casino as well as a duty free shop. We sat and had some hot chocolate as we watched the ship sail away.

By 10 PM, we were back in our room and getting ready to sleep. I slept really good on the boat and I didn't get sick at all (unlike the Zanzibar ferry). This morning we got up around 6:30 and got some breakfast on the boat before we disembarked in Split, Croatia.

When we arrived in Split, we first found the train station and made sure we knew where we were going. Then we put our bags in a locker and went to see a little bit of this small town. It really is a cute town. It would have been nice to spend the night there before moving on, but we had to take the train today to Zagreb. So after spending an hour in Split we got on the train and now we are well on our way to Zagreb.
