A day in Dubrovnik

Although we live in a very small town, we're fortunate to have an active international airport and larger town no more than 1.5hrs drive away.

Dubrovnik is a lovely town that sees thousands of tourists every year. But because I was pregnant and experienced extreme nausea, and then because we had two dogs that were killing each other, and then because I was heavily pregnant and on bedrest, and then because I had a newborn and recovering from surgery, and then because.... this lovely old city that was a mere stone's throw away, alluded me. But we finally made it across and took the little wildflower. At 6.5 months she's already an international globetrotter.


It's November and the weather is cool, but see how many tourists there still are back there? This is why we visit European cities out of season. I can't imagine being here during the scorching summer without any breathing space between multpile armpits.

Yet the sun was out and we were unrushed. We ate good pizza and ice-cream and strolled. It's a little too touristy for us. But we searched out the tiny hidden cobbled alleyways and streched our necks to view the crumbling architecture.

  1. WOW! Lots of tourist indeed! What a cute little globetrotter in the making! Lucky child!


  2. Greetings HM, I followed you here from Chucks blog and his 'project' I so enjoy your style, and am especially thrilled to hear that you were in Dubrovnik. As I sit here in Canada, your blog reminded me of that lovely place we were fortunate enough to visit pre-war. We so love that area, and how very cool that you are living there. Isn't the topography there so diverse? Best to you and yours.

  3. Thanks earthling :)

    Hi Trina. Welcome. Nice to see another Chuck project follower.

    Yes, the area is wonderfully diverse, although we haven't ventured that far inland yet.

  4. Hello,

    I just wanted to say thank you so much for your kind words. Your lovely comments and warm wishes mean so much to me.
    Our little family will be fine, even though we are having a bit of a sad day missing our little babies. We still have three others to give extra love to so there is that to be thankful for.

    Thank you and have a magical day..
    Love Amber

  5. That armpit comment is dead on.
    Traveling is no fun when you're stuck with all the tourists.
    It looks like a great place.

  6. Oh my goodness! You live near Dubrovnik! That is such a beautiful, beautiful place!

    Good that you can enjoy it outside the tourist season. It's a spot that has become hugely popular of late isn't it?

  7. Welcome Kelli & Chris (no prob Amber)

    Docwitch - it sure has. The prices for property all along the Croatian coast went through the roof about 5 years ago. The whole Adriatic coast is very picteresque, in a wild and rocky way.
