It’s absolutely crazy that this time two months ago I’d just touched down in Montenegro, at the start of my little solo jaunt to the Balkans. What’s even crazier is that now, two months down the line, I’ve only actually managed to publish five posts from that trip. That’s five out of at least fifteen I have tentatively planned in my own head.
So yeah, have no fear because there’s plenty more to come my lovely little bunch of fromage frais.
The last two posts have been very word-heavy and very Game of Thrones heavy, and to be honest Westeros is starting to look like one of those words that doesn’t look like a real word after you’ve typed it out one time too many times. Bubbles. Teacher. Fork. So I figured that to break up all the words and the excitement of being reminded Season 7 is just around the corner, let’s chill the eff out a little bit and just look at some pretty pictures, mostly taken from my Instagram because I’m sort of too lazy to edit any new ones right now. Another string to add to my “48 Hours in…” bow.
I mean, I’d love to actually write something useful for a change. A list of things to do on a budget, perhaps. Or maybe a vegetarian’s guide to eating out. Except that I visited Dubrovnik in winter, during off-season (and with about £0.02 of disposable income to my name) so there wasn’t really anything to do bar walk around aimlessly, and I basically lived off of Batchelor’s Pasta ‘n’ Sauce cooked in the comfort of my AirBnB. Because despite travelling hand luggage only, that hand luggage typically consists of 50% clothes and 50% dried pasta goods.
The one time I did eat out in Dubrovnik, I took myself out on a date to a kinda fancy restaurant and made a complete fool of myself by choking on a piece of asparagus (which I don’t even like!) and having to rely on the waiter to bring me a whole jug of tap water for me to recover. Anyway…
Dubrovnik is beautiful.
It’s absolutely stunning.
It’s orange and it’s blue and it’s sunny (except for the day I arrived when I basically drowned in a puddle while waiting for my AirBnb host to arrive) and it’s everything you could want in a holiday destination, no matter what you’re looking for. Family friendly? Check. Couples friendly? Check. Nightlife? Check. Watersports? Check. Do nothing but lie on the beach and read books? Check.
I would recommend it to everybody. In fact, the Dubrovnik tourism board should start paying me because I have been recommending it to everybody.
And if you, sat there reading this right now, are in two minds about whether to visit. Do it. You won’t be disappointed.
