When we drove from Montenegro to Dubrovnik, we stopped in the town of Cavtat for lunch and to walk around, stretch our legs. It was a breezy, beautiful spring day.
Finding our Air BnB apartment in Dubrovnik was a challenge. We literally drove around until we had no road left to drive on and had to turn around in a very precarious spot, on the side of a cliff.
We called our ‘host’ and he met us near the old town within 10 minutes, hopped in our car and showed us exactly where to go. Along the way, he shared his knowledge of the area, gave us tips for driving and parking and advice on what to see and do during our stay in Dubrovnik.
Our first view of the Old Town was at dusk. Beautiful indeed.
The following day the weather was grey and damp. We bought an umbrella and explored the city, having it almost entirely to ourselves. We ducking into ice-cream parlors and cafés to escape the drizzle. We were caught in a downpour on our way back to the apartment, which was about a 10 minutes walk up many steps and narrow alley ways. But rain can be cozy – even on vacation. We hung our wet clothes up to dry, made a pot of coffee and let the girls play, confident that there were plenty of sunny days ahead of us.
