…. We’re never leaving (gotcha, huh?)! We had no idea what to expect upon choosing Croatia in our itinerary, but we sure are glad we did, especially this hotel.
So today is our first full day in Dubrovnik. We are staying right outside of old town (about a 15 minute walk) and because we love our hotel so much we decided to have a relax at the hotel day! It was a perfect day to enjoy the sun and amazing views our hotel location had to offer. After a late breakfast, we hit the gym to sweat out all the pasta, wine and cheese we’ve been consuming the last week or so. Then it was straight to the water! We walked down to the hotel’s private ‘beach area’ which is more like a dock and jumped straight in; taking pride in the cool new underwater Mike purchased The weather could not have been more fitting for our day!
Because we have a balcony worth being jealous over, we decided to use it in all of it’s glory. We sat there for probably 3 hours soaking in the sun, beer in hand.
Forcing ourselves to leave the room we went to the Terrace for a small snack before showering up for dinner in Old Town Dubrovnik. This was the first time we’ve walked into the town and it is sure beautiful!
The Streets are so clean and shiny we were joking they probably spit shine them! We walked through a few cobblestone alleyways before finding a spot to eat nestled away on the skirts of Old Town. After some amazing lasagna and tuna gnocchi, we started the trek back to our hotel, but not before stopping for some delicious ice cream!
We honestly could not have asked for a better day! Another transportation day tomorrow to Hvar Island; we’ve heard they are expecting a thunderstorm… stay tuned!
