We arrived on Tuesday afternoon and settled into our apartment, completely knackered from our journey (my body doesn't deal well with getting up before 5 am). We decided against going out into Old Town that night and instead chose a small restaurant that was incredibly close to our place. Most of the restaurants serve a lot of seafood fresh from the sea, absolutely delicious.
The second day we explored the ancient old city, walked the city walls in the blistering heat, had more delicious food but went back to the apartment for a night in and I cooked up a little dinner myself which we enjoyed out on the balcony before the boyfriend watched the European cup semi finals, boys will be boys. Not like I minded, I was incredibly tired and in need of some rest.
On the third day we ticked off a few boxes of our must see list, the Dubrovnik cable car and swimming at the cliff side Buza bar. The cable car took us up incredibly quickly, providing us with stunning views of the city and its ports. We enjoyed a lovely sandwich and a wonderful cocktail at the panorama restaurant. You're really going to pay for it there, but my oh my those views were too wonderful to pass up. As far as the swimming goes at Buza, it was a little crowded but down on the rocks it was lovely. There were people jumping off the cliffs into the water. While it looked exciting I would never do that because I'm the biggest klutz and I would surely slip and break my neck.
We leave next Friday and we still have so much on the list of things we want to do and see, so you can expect many more pictures of this beautiful city and its surrounding islands.
