(Image taken before the plane set off to Dubrovnik)
Me and my Family got up early on Sunday morning, and by early I mean ridiculously early we got up at 2:30 and left our house at about 3 in the morning! We then arrived at the airport at 4 AM and went through check in and security. Once in the airport shopping bit and restaurant it was time for a 5 o’clock breakfast, for this very early breakfast I had a very large and tasty sandwich! Then as we were eating our very large sandwiches the voice speaker thing came on and said that our plane was now boarding so we had to take our sandwiches with us to the boarding gate. We then finished our breakfast and boarded the plane. On the plane I did some colouring that was in my on flight essential bag (you can view that post Here), the flight went so quickly. When we got off the plane in Dubrovnik I could feel the heat hit instantly! It was now about 10 o’clock so we went through the air port, then got the hire car and headed to the apartment! On first glance of Croatia it looked LOVELY I especially like the pointy trees that seemed to be everywhere! The apartment was really nice and had a large balcony with a lovely view over the water.
Once we had unpacked and had been to a shop to get the essential food items we headed down over 300 steps to the old walled city of Dubrovnik. The city looked very grand with big cathedrals, towers and lots of shops. We walked around the shops for a while before heading back up the 300 steps – that was hard work in the heat and having had very little sleep the previous night!
On Monday we took the car down to a place called Cavtat. It was a bay with many restaurants, and lots of ice cream! When we got there we found the car park, which was very busy so it took us ages to find a space, then when we eventually did we went for a walk. We walked around a pathed walkway which took you along the waters edge. The views were amazing I love the picture above of the sea and mountins through the trees. The trees were so pretty I loved walking along the tree lined pathway with the water and mountains to one side! We then went out for lunch at a restaurant called Konoba Taranj, I had broccoli pasta which was really nice. What was not so nice is that I ordered Fanta Orange – here’s a tip – if you ever go to Croatia or somewhere else hot with many wasps don’t order Fanta! I had one wasp fly over it then fell into the bottle of Fanta it then got out again and many many more wasps came to lick (if that’s what wasps do?) the Fanta from the wasp that fell in and before long there were A LOT of wasps at the table, and I really DON’T like wasps. Other than that however (I did not have Fanta again that week) there were no problems with wasps.
