Travel surprises…

Sunday, October 26, 2014

Bonjour, tout le monde!  I have to give ya'll a giagantic thank you/merci/danke for sticking with me after completely disappearing for a week and then being all over the place (literally and figuratively!).  I'm trying to get outfit posts and travel posts and giveaways up all at the same time, so things may be a tad disjointed around here for the next week or so!  Anyway, enough of that!  On to Croatia! 

I have to say that Croatia has probably been the biggest surprise for me during my time in Europe and our day in Dubrovnik was my favourite day of the cruise!  I will admit (with my head hanging low) that I really never thought about Croatia.  In my mind, it was a Slavic country that was still war torn from the end of last century and that's about all I really knew/cared to know/thought of it.  Boy, was I surprised to wake up, wander out of our windowless interior cabin and see what was outside!  

Dubrovnik was AMAZING!  Beautiful, old architecture, white marble streets, shimmering ocean, and a vast marina greeted me!  While yes, I did to a tidbit of planning for the cruise (note: when SB and I travel, we usually focus on getting ourselves somewhere, planning a place to sleep, and then figuring out what to do once we're there and settled), and knew that I wanted to walk on "the wall" (because I looked Dubrovnik up on Pinterest before leaving), I had no clue how amazing it would be!  The views were breathtaking.  

If you ever visit Dubrovnik and only have a short time to spend there, I highly recommend changing some money, walking the wall (they only take Kuna), grabbing some ice cream and doing some people watching!  

Already been to Dubrovnik?  What did you do?  What did you like?  What did I miss?
