Dubrovnik Recap


Farewell Dubrovnik

Its time to say good bye to Croatia. The beauty of Dubrovnik and the Adriatic Sea far exceeded my expectations. The people were friendly and welcoming, and the seafood and gelato were delicious. Oh, and I’ll definitely be missing the kitties that populate the streets. The only downside to Dubrovnik is it’s pricier than I expected.

If you’re on a timeframe, I think 1-3 days in Dubrovnik is sufficient. I would break it down like this:

  • 1 day- Old Town, Lokrum Island and/or Banje Beach
  • 2 day- An Island excursion or two
  • 3 day- Explore Lapad and it’s beaches (if beach days are your thing)


Dubrovnik Tips:

  • Stick to seafood. Maybe I had bad luck, but the few times I didn’t order seafood it wasn’t that great.
  • Tips can only be given in cash. They cannot add it to the credit card.
  • Euros are accepted everywhere, but your change will be in their money called Kuna.
  • Pupo restaurant in the old town was my favorite.
  • If you like white wine, be sure to try Posip.
  • If your interested in tours outside Dubrovnik, I recommend Mostar and I would pass on Montenegro.








Lapad First Impression


I had fully planned to nap when we got to our hotel in the Lapad area of Dubrovnik, but once we arrived it was just too beautiful to stay inside.

Our  hotel is on a  small promenade full of hotels, restaurants, and a few stores. The end of the street is the beach and beach club..

Below are our balcony views.

My first impression was nothing short of awe at the green mountain coastline and picturesque sunset.  Simply stunning.
