After two days of working out in Plitvice, we headed to our final destination in Croatia; Dubrovnik. This was also one of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites. We took a bus to Zagreb, the capital of Croatia and the airport was deserted that it was really hard to believe!.
The heat in Dubrovnik was especially intense during our visit in summer. Unfortunately it was easy to get headaches if one is not used to the heat (i.e youknowwho); thankfully there were delicious cooling ice creams sold almost everywhere especially at the main street; Brsalje Street.
I couldn’t find out a lot of the names of the buildings, but their ancient look made the city look almost rustic. We walked around the city; it was a lot smaller than expected so we kept going about in the same place. The second afternoon, after a cable car ride, we took a boat ride to a nearby beach and dipped for a couple of hours. The water was crystal clear as the seabed was made of rocks instead of the usual sand. On the final day, we climbed the city wall. We managed to use our student discount though our student card had expired for a week and counting.
The sea view from the boat ride and the beach:
Although it was really hot (scorching hot) and I gott a few shades tanner at the end of the trip, the beauty of the waterfalls and lakes in Plitvice as well as the seaview in Dubrovnik certainly made this trip worthwhile. We took a lot of scenic pictures but failed to remember to get a group picture in my camera.
For those who are thinking about a trip to Croatia in summer, the important thing: sunblock. sunblock. sunblock. SUNBLOCK.
