Croatian coast and Dubrovnik
After leaving the waterfalls we head for the coast - which is absolutely stunning. Think we are lucky coming this time of year as all the purple wild Iris and Euphorbia are growing in abundance on the road side and it all looks so pretty
The coast road is definitely worth the trip with lots of little villages hugging the sides of the cliffs, we stop for some lunch and eat some yummy anchovies. Which I have to say were better in real life than the picture!
We find somewhere to camp this evening as its too far to get to Dubrovnik in one hit – we are camping at a camp site right next to the sea which looks so inviting and is amazingly clear and blue- however on the touch test too cold for swimming! Its also an opportunity to get some laundry done, who would have thought I would be so excited to see a washing machine -We bump into the German guy we met at the last campsite – small world
The following day more beautiful coastline, we get to Dubrovnik later afternoon and stay at a camp more or less in town. It more expensive than we usually pay per night but is very central and means we won’t have to drive tomorrow so probably worth the extra. Just about to pop out for something to heat and who do we meet – our German friend again (who we have secretly named Pieter – but is actually called Michael) We eat out with Michae/Pieter this evening and chat about our travels past and future
Not sure who is stalking who - But nice to meet you Michael/Pieter
Dubrovnik old town is the jewel in Croatia’s crown – it is very touristy and would probably be a nightmare in the summer but right now it is great. We take the wall walk – which is what you do when you are in Dubrovnik which is a photo opportunity around every corner
Tomorrow we head for Montenegro and Albania! Montenero is supposed to be beautiful and Albania you are supposed to be robbed and murdered at every corner, plus the roads are supposed to be rubbish - read the next instalment to find out what happens- Especiall the lovely Ali, Al and Dot who we met for an evening in Dubrovnik you will not regret your decision!!!
