Host with the most
We arrived at the airport in the late morning, greeted by a little old man with a sign – our host, Paolo. Hoping to keep the costs down, we’d booked accommodation as cheap and well-rated and close as possible to Dubrovnik’s old town while still outside the walls, which ended up being Paolo and his wife’s bed and breakfast, Stella Apartments, on the sloping hills overlooking the city.
Wandering the streets
Refuge and rehydration
Looking around lokrum
Swimming and sea-kayaking
The next day we walked into town again, heading guiltily to Nishta for the third day in a row (it was just that good!), but were thwarted when we found it was closed on Sundays! We spent the rest of the day swimming and sunbathing just outside the city walls, until the threat of a storm and some pestering raindrops drove us away.
Eager to prolong our time in Dubrovnik and to avoid walking back up the stairs once again, we went into the old town for a refreshing mojito, which was served in one bug jug with two enormous straws. Dinner was at a mediocre establishment, but our server was so friendly we were glad we'd patronised her. She was very eager to accommodate our veg(etari)anism, and later even brought us out free dessert wine!
To bosnia and herzegovina
The next morning we got up super-early (again!) to get to the station and catch our bus to Mostar, after which we promised we wouldn't be booking ourselves on any more early-morning buses, no matter how cheap.
