Doing a bit of a sort out I found a bunch of stuff from some old trips, this is leaflets, receipts, and old tickets. I have already scrap booked my trip to Dubrovnik, Croatia so I don’t really have much use for them anymore. So I thought I would do a little blog post and reminisce.
Dubrovnik was an amazing trip, it was relaxing but we did lots of activities. The most exciting was probably the scuba diving we did with Blue Planet Diving Centre. It was a little terrifying initially, the thought of putting your head underwater and just ‘breathing normally’ so I had a little moment but after that I really enjoyed it. Since it was our first go we barely went 5m deep!
We also walked along the Old Town walls (in the baking mid day sun with a million other tourists) which gave a great view of the Old Town. And also a view of a few of the bombed out remains of little houses from the Croatian War of Independence. We also took a gondola to the top of the hill to see the lovely view from up there, we felt that it was a waste of money really as we just walked down the hill to get back. There was also a little museum at the top which gave some more insights to the War, although not much was in English unfortunately.
It was also a trip of Island hopping. We heading out to Mljet where most of the island is a National Park, we hired bikes and toured the park, we also swam in a picturesque lake which was lovely. That ended up being a more expensive trip than anticipated though (cost of boat there, the cost of the bikes, and lunch). We also took a little trip to a smaller island called, Lokrum where there were loads of peacocks. This was the day after we had been out kayaking and I got very sunburnt on my legs and feet. So every step in Lokrum was agony. Good memories!
