This last August, me and the one I now call fiancé went on a short break to Dubrovnik in Croatia. it was a fairly last minute decision, catching quite a decent deal online. The journey there required a 7 hour stop over at Brussels airport. This I was anxious about, but turned out to be fine, with armed guards all over.
Once we arrived, morning had just broken. The heat was already nearly unbearable and we weren’t able to get into our accommodation until 2. Our lovely transfer driver gave us our scheduled lift to the accommodation to drop off our suitcases, and then offered us a free lift into town. We tried to give him some money but he would not accept.
well…what a BEAUTIFUL city! I am in love with this place. We basically spent the morning wandering around, stopping to get cold drinks and a bit of shade. We also stopped off at the local pebbly beach to cool our toes.
Instead of taking a bus or taxi to the accommodation, we decided to walk. This provided us with come amazing views of the open sea.
Finally we got to our accommodation, and I must admit we had a little rest in the air conditioned room and a shower before heading out for tea. We decided to splurge a little to enjoy our first night, so we went to a lovely little restaurant that, wasn’t the cheapest, and order starters as well as a main. I didn’t get any pictures of our mains, but here are our starters (they kind of look like mains).
To finish the night off we wandered to the end of the dock and looked over the open seas, dock, beautiful buildings and the mountain in the distance. (the mountain has a big part to play later on in the story).
Part 2 to follow soon….okies?
