City escapes ~ Snapshots of Croatia

Hello! It’s going to be a quiet week on the blog this week as I’m finally on a week’s holiday in Croatia! Woohoo! But it’s a bit grey this afternoon so whilst we wait for the sun to return I thought I’d have a little go at seeing how mobile blogging works and play around with my new app addiction – PixFx! So here are the latest snapshots from somewhere I think would make a great city break!

It was an early flight out from Gatwick to Dubrovnik but on the upside you get to enjoy a pretty morning sky from the plane!


Just over a two hour flight, an hour or so bus journey and a ten minute taxi journey, we arrived at our hotel. It’s a bit of a budget booking but it’s clean and the view from our hotel room is pretty lovely!


Although we’re outside Dubrovnik in the neighbouring area of Lapad, as the coast faces the west you can enjoy sunsets on the sea.


Lapad is also only a 15 minute bus journey from Dubrovnik Old Town where you can climb up to the tops of the city walls…


… And ramble amongst the cobbled streets at night.


Drink Piña Coladas (best drank overseas in my opinion!).


And as much ice cream you can fit in!


Whilst also squeezing in sunbathing on the beach.


And strolling around the coast!


I’ll come back with all the details next week, so for now I’ll leave this city escape post…


(P.S. for any wordpress bloggers out there it turns out the iPhone app is pretty easy to use if you’re not hoping to do anything too fancy 🙂 )
