To Venice - or not


Waked up at 6am. Quick shower & make up.
Walked to the bus station to pick up the Kompas's ferry bus to Isola to Prince of Venice.

Another 9 persons waited for the same bus - which never came. Instead one of the crew arrived to annoced that the trip was cancelled due to an engine failure...
Felt very dissapointed.

Back to the hotel. Had a breakfast. And a long walk to Portoroz and all the way to the Seca peninsula.
Got the money back at Kompas office in Portoroz. Friendly service there.

Came to Caffe Tartini to write this blog. Nice place. It's been renovated totally since the last time. It was quite a worn out place, but now very fresh and trendy.
