    Island Hopping Dubrovnic

    June 9, 2019 in Croatia ⋅ ⛅ 27 °C

    We spent and enjoyable day islands hopping among three of the Epheliti island fishing villages off the Dubrovnic coast. The boat was smallish diesel with up and down options for seating, the pick up was a man who walked us to the boat!!! When I asked about the drop off (all supposed to be included in the price) I was informed they were a van down due to mechanical breakdown!!! Suffice to say we walked home afterwards up the streets and steps to our house feeling a bit short changed. But on the bright side the day was relaxed, sunny and the swim after a nice fish lunch was refreshing.Read more

    Dubrovnic Croatia

    June 8, 2019 in Croatia ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    We stayed on the hills above the city harbour port which was about one thousand steps up from sea level. Spent the day around the old city and walked the walls followed by lunch at a nice restaurant. Walking home after the intense heat my body overheated and a felt faint from dehydration. Cold shower, rest and lots of fluids later I felt better. Tomorrow we take a day trip out to the Elefiti Islands off the coast.Read more

    Dovidenja Dubrovnik - Salve Bari!

    June 14, 2019 in Croatia ⋅ ☀️ 28 °C

    Dubrovniks Fährhafen liegt einige Kilometer entfernt vom historischen Zentrum. Von hier soll uns eine Fähre der Jadrolinija über Nacht nach Bari in Italien bringen.
    Schon um 17.30 Uhr stehen wir in der Schlange für's Boarding. Ganz entspannt, die Karten sind schon gebucht. Damit bleibt uns ausreichend Zeit, um uns im Hafen umzusehen. Die Ausflugsschiffe kommen gerade an uns spucken Horden angeheiteter, ach nein, heiterer Passagiere aus. Sie ähneln farblich ein wenig den Garnelen, die wir gestern im Restaurant gegessen haben.
    Das Warten auf's Boarding vertreiben wir uns im Restaurant, wie kann es anders sein als bei Meeresfrüchten, Fisch und einem Glaserl Wein.
    Pünktlich um 19.00 Uhr stehen wir zum Boarding bereit. Das gestaltet sich etwas mühsam, wir müssen ja ehe wir an Board gehen die kroatisch italienische Grenze passieren.
    Nach einer gefühlten Ewigkeit und einer Passkontrolle dürfen wir an Bord. Das Innere des Schiffs versprüht den Charme Exjugoslawiens, das Personal ebenfalls. Trotzdem, an der Bar am Oberdeck spielt es nette Musik und wir genießen den Abend bis zum Ablegen.
    Die Überfahrt ist glücklicher Weise ruhig und um 8.00 Uhr begrüßt uns Bari die Hauptstadt Apuliens.

    Dubrovnik - zurück in den Sommer

    October 25, 2019 in Croatia ⋅ ⛅ 24 °C

    Eigentlich wollte ich ja nie wieder nach Dubrovnik. Ich war vor 15 Jahren schon mal hier und fand es so schön, dass ich mir die Erinnerungen nicht durch Massentourismus verderben wollte.
    Aber da sich das nun mal als Zwischenstopp anbot, und ich zudem ein unglaublich günstiges Apartment gefunden habe, bin ich nun hier gelandet. ;)
    Und ja, es sind trotz Nachsaison und derzeit nur einem ankernden Kreuzfahrtschiff wirklich viele Menschen hier. Eine merkwürdige Mischung aus pummeligen, tätowierten Billigflug-Touris und poshen Seglern. Aber schön ist die Altstadt nach wie vor! Und wenn man wie ich morgens über einen Nebenweg zum Aussichtsberg hochsteigt, statt die Seilbahn zu nehmen, dann begegnet einem auch mal eine Stunde lang niemand.
    Und die 24° und Sonne habe ich nach dem Schmuddelwetter in Madrid auch dankend angenommen! 🌞

    Dubrovnik, Croatia

    July 20, 2017 in Croatia ⋅ ☀️ 27 °C

    Dubrovnik is one of my favorite places but to be honest most of the places we've been I've absolutely loved! The Old Town is so medieval, full of terra-cotta roofs, narrow alleyways, multilevel building surrounded by a Great Wall. There are heaps of tourists but it doesn't feel as busy as Santorini, probably because it's a little more spread out. The pavements are really slippery due to being polished by the thousands of tourists that walk on them every year so maneuvering the town can be a little dangerous! Of course Dubrovnik is famous for The Game Of Thrones so we went on a film set tour which was super cool. We visited Blackwater Bay, The Red Keep, the walk of shame path, the city of Qarth, and the main scenes of Kings Landing. We also adventured to Buza Bar - a bar on the outside of the wall along the water - where we swam all day off the rocks and did some cliff jumping. I only jumped off a baby rock (which still felt like it was massive) but these guys were jumping off twice as high as me, it was great entertainment!! After five hours in the water, we decided to walk the city walls of Old Town. You can get a panoramic view of Dubrovnik from up here as well as visit all of the fortresses around the wall. It's a really awesome experience because there's no other place quite like it! We are leaving Dubrovnik today for Split on board a Medsailors yacht which is going to be so much fun!Read more
