Sadly for us, the fun had to end sometime, and Dubrovnik was the final planned stop on our world tour. But what a great place to wrap it up!
Dubrovnik is yet another walled city, but much larger and cooler than any we’d come across. The walls are really thick and high, and the city contained within is really, really big.
To enter the city, you cross a drawbridge and moat.
Here are a few shots of the side alleys
While it was cool to walk in the streets of the city, it was even better to walk on top of the walls. They’re probably 30-40 feet high in most places, giving great views of everything.
About half the wall is up against ocean, so we got some beautiful views.
There are also lots of fortifications, cannons, and other nooks and crannies that were fun to see and duck into.
The last part of the wall tour is inland and sits a big higher, giving nice elevated views.
My mom and her sister had been here about 6 months before and sent us on a quest for a bar that served incredibly good hot chocolate. Found it!
On our last day, Beckett, Mara and I went kayaking, then did a little swim. Despite being living near the sea for months, this was the first time we’d been in the ocean in nearly a year. Made me miss Kona!
Unfortunately, that’s a wrap! Through the miracles of flight cancellations and delays, we did get a single-day visit to Frankfurt, Germany on the way home, but no post on that.
