Lost in Croatia

Up early to avoid the crowds but not the heat, I think it was 30 hot & humid.

Our planned afternoon hike was cancelled so someone (not me this time) wanted to go to Marjan Hill which ended up been a hike. We peaked a little too early when we saw an empty flagpole thinking we had reached the summit only to turn around to see the Croatian flag on another point. We took hike trials, roads, looked at churches, things we had no idea what they were. It was totally worth it, including getting lost trying to find our way back to the city. Maybe not so impressed about the number of steps we went up.


After a couple of hours recovering under the air con we braved the streets again where we discovered a evening walking tour sounded great so we signed up then realised how much walking we had already done. However we learnt about the Diocletian’s Palace which is the area we are staying & what really killed us back up Marjan to the first view point which was worth it.

Next time I’ll take the bus

Someone had a bright idea to go hiking today...up a mountain.....well it was the best idea I’ve had all trip, by far the best activity we’ve done this trip (and it was down hill). We hiked along the old railway line (the line is long gone but the tunnels remain) under the peak of Snijeznica or 1234 as its 1234m in the Konavle Valley. The views over the valley, airport and villages were amazing, the legless lizard that looked like a snake not so amazing. Totally recommend the guys at Adventure Park Cadmos Village, these guys build the first treehouse in Croatia I’m packing my bags to move in now.



We took the opportunity to go to Cavtat instead of heading back to Dubrovnik, another great idea. We walked around the peninsula stopimg at bench’s to gaze out to sea. Even dipped our toes into the cold rocky sea, so refreshing. The popular way back to Dubrovnik is by ferry, great idea until the thunderstorm rolls over the mountains and over you in a boat, great when you don’t really like boats, next time I think I’ll take the bus.


Thumbs up to the refreshing water on our tired feet
