Dubrovnik

Before you say it… I KNOW these next posts aren’t strictly about gardening, but I’m hoping to wing it by pretending they are foodie posts 🙂

In June my friend and I went on an adventure to Croatia. With all our holiday belongings shoved into the teeniest rucksacks in the world, we embarked on the journey. The plan was really to have no plan – all very exciting!

The big adventure actually nearly started and ended in disaster though.We had our first night at a hotel near Gatwick, so we could get up bright and early for the flight to Dubrovnik. A few pre-holiday wines in the room meant that we slept through the alarm and almost missed our taxi. Half an hour later, and it would have been curtains for the holiday!

Not having any accommodation booked (crazy cats that we are!), we downloaded the HostelWorld App and spent the time in the departure lounge merrily scrolling through potential places to stay. We decided on an ensuite room (we’re not hardcore backpackers) just outside Dubrovnik. This turned out to be a genius manoeuvre – the place was brilliant! A short bus ride from Old town, and the family who owned it couldn’t have been more welcoming – even taxi-ing us to the port on our last day there.

Here are some pics of Dubrovnik – an absolutely stunning place to visit…
