Dubrovnik – Croatia Day 5


After the exerts of yesterday morning we decided we deserved a lie in, nothing stupid, but not having an alarm on for 6. Instead we turned the phone upside down and got up at 9, lucky really as we found out in the morning that we had to be out of the apartment by 10.

We walked down to the Old town to grab a bite of breakfast, a few bits and bob presents and to go to the beach. I had another cherry pastry, was good, better than the first one I had a few days before. We aimed for the main beach in Dubrovnik, it was uber busy and with the sun being so high in the sky there was little hope for shade. Or so it seemed, we found a brilliant spot by the rocks which had an arse shaped rock structure which was shaded by the bigger rock above, perfect. Cesekberry was pretty quickly off into the sea for snorkelling and lilo’ing. I hung on the rocks, watching the sea life before going in. There was lots to see in the water, not as much as the day before, but still lots of entertainment. The water was quite choppy though, which you would expect when massive cruise liners are passing through within hundreds of metres.

Dubrovnik – Croatia Day 4 Mljet


As I said yesterday, the alarm was set for 6am, lovely, I woke up… take a guess… go on I dares ya… yep spot on 5.59am. Who would have guessed it hey?

So that meant we were up, and had no excuse not to get up and get going. The benefit of such an early start walking down to the Old Town is much more pleasant due to the reduced heat, still tough on the calves but less sweaty (yummy). Down at Old Town we grabbed some bus tickets and had to wait only minutes for the bus to the ferry port.

Dubrovnik – Croatia Day 3 Lapad


Early start planned, alarm set for 7.30 to get down to tourist information by 8. No go, alarm fail, didn’t get up till 9. Woops.

The plan for today? Got down into town and hire a car, why a car I hear you scream, to go driving! Where to… Bosnia Herzegovina and Montenegro. Three countries (if you include Croatia) in one day.

Unfortunately the entire of Dubrovnik was out of hire cars, so instead we caught the bus up to Lapad Bay.

Dubrovnik – Croatia Day 2 Lokrum


I guess good morning and welcome to day two. An early-ish start, not as early as first hoped due to the insane heat in the room and difficulties with sleeping. First port of call is to get down into Old Town and grab a couple of necessities for the days activities. Basically I need a hat, some sunglasses (what sort of ‘etard goes away without theirs?) and a towel for beaching. I’d say this was a successful hunt but that would be being nice, yes I got all I needed but it took a lot longer than it should have and I had to pay a lot more than I would have liked. However, mission accomplished and we could move onto the harbour and finding the ferry that would take us to Lokrum

And what do you do there?
