Island of Lokrum
Visiting the island of Lokrum was the highlight of my trip, which is surprising because I only thought it was a good idea to do so while seated at café Buza. Located just across Dubrovnik old town, I took a 15-minute boat ride which I booked from a Croatia boat rental to find myself in this natural paradise. I was even more amazed with Lokrum when I heard that some scenes of my favorite TV show "Game of Thrones" where shot here.
This one was an incident that we were unprepared for, at least in Croatia. The same night we had a night bus from Zagreb to Dubrovnik. With the bus tickets and passport safe, we decided to continue with our travel after having reported the theft of the wallet.With a big bag (befitting a 50day trip) per person, we were stared at by our bus driver. He seemed a rather unpleasant person, who was at least highly suspicious of us. We decided to ignore that, only to wake up to a surprise. The driver had tipped us to the Boarder Police while crossing Bosnia and Herzegovina. On their routine checking, they took our passports and even asked one of our team mates- Akash to head out of the bus.The police only had 4 passports, 4 Indian passports. Bunny was asked to empty has pockets and further on asked to open his bag. The police was hoping to find some drugs, and they weren’t any secretive of their intentions. They asked Bunny to handover any drug that he had on him.Of course the bus driver, who assisted in opening the luggage storage in the bus was enjoying the scene.When there was nothing to be found worth reporting, we were handed back our passports. (Honestly, with all the cases of framing that we’ve read, this was a scary experience)Reaching Dubrovnik wasn’t the end of this as more people gave us dirty stares on the bus. Someone did mutter ‘Asians’ while making a face.Further on, we were questioned if we belonged to Pakistan or Bangladesh.You see, things aren’t always as FAIR as THEY SEEM TO BE!Don’t worry; Croatia did give us a fare share of fun and joy. And I shall post about that too! SOON.Until next post,Parampara(Who has crossed levels of being AWARA)This post is from the 50Days trip to Europe across 9 countries and 20 cities.
