Today I got back from lovely Dubrovnik. If you've never been I'd certainly recommend a trip there, it was definitely one of the most beautiful cities I've travelled to! The Croatian coastal town lies on a mountain overlooking a very blue sea. Here are a few photos from our trip.. we stayed in a Bowie-themed apartment which was a great way to relax and gave us chance to cook our own food when we fancied it. Also, the view from the apartment was amazing!
As it is on a hill there are hundreds of steps to climb every day which keeps you quite fit! One day Tom decided we should climb to the top of the mountain, where there is a war museum about the Homeland wars that happened in the early 90s. It's worth a visit, as is the War Photo museum in the old town.
On our last day we decided to try a kayaking tour, which was a lot of fun. We boated round the island of Lokrum, to a little cove where we had a break and Tom bravely tested the water in his snorkel (it was cold!) It was also quite hard work and my arms are still aching!
I'll really miss Dubrovnik, it's strange being back in grey Nottingham but at least we have the Bank Holiday yet to come! I'll share some pages from our travel sketchbooks over the weekend too.
