Laying on the beach for the past week has been pretty tough for Candace & I so we decided to take a mini vacation to Dubrovnik! Its called the Pearl of the Adriatic and the old city dates back to the 13th century. The city's entirely enclosed by huge stone walls and its said that back in the day in order to trade in the city you had to bring a stone and thats how the walls were built. Inside the walls it's all little cobblestone streets, beautiful arches, bell towers, and churches. And since its a major tourist attraction its loaded with cafes and gelato stands...not necessarily a bad thing. Its also one of the locations Game of Thrones is filmed, I only somewhat followed the show but a lot of places were recognisable which was awesome. The best part of Dubrovnik is walking the perimeter of the city on top of the walls.
Its about a 5 hour bus ride from Split to Dubrovnik...a little longer than we were thinking but the ride is gorgeous. The bus stays right on the coast so its blue water and mountains the whole ride, the added stop in Bosnia was pretty cool too. Because of the long ride we booked a B&B for the night and had THE sweetest host. She made us fresh cheese (really good & really squeaky) and brought eggs from her farm!
Big thank you to the British boy who held an umbrella for me when it started raining.
