“old town” and travel housekeeping
couch view out our window
We arrived to our apartment in “old town” Dubrovnik located inside the fortress where only foot traffic is allowed. Our apartment is the 2nd floor of a gentleman’s house. And right above an ice cream shop which makes for awesome people watching!
Our Aussie friends, Lynette and Roger, turned us on to apartment vacationing ... we are grateful. You see, if you leave Australia you leave for a length of time because the travel is so long. They know how to do this distant travel stuff!
We quickly washed our 24 hour travel clothes in the mini washer and hung them out on the line shared by Croatian pigeons. Will let you know how that works out!
Just spent 45 minutes wrestling with the stove that requires a few Hail Marys and a google search to turn on! Ah, coffee is required after this long trip! Our bodies say it’s 10 in the morning but it’s 5 pm in Dubrovnik...
Finally a cup of the hot stuff but not before contemplating a nip which we carried here from the Ernst annual nip hunt at Easter. No, I’ll wait for coffee! liver still thinks it’s 10 am.
Our handsome young taxi driver tells us Dubrovnik is supported mostly by tourist... so “thank you for coming”. He also tells us to walk the fortress and bring water. I suspect this walk has hurt some tourist in the past. He also says the tram to the top of the mountain for sunset can not be missed.
We pay him in kuna and he is amply impressed that we took the time to bring the right currency... we smile. But admittedly still don’t understand how a cab ride can cost 275 kuna...
We are “acting as if”. In our sweet little apartment in Old Town ... home of “game of thrones”...
Marks ready to explore! Later!
oh! When you have 3 of everything for 12 days it’s important to use the washer❤️
what the heck? Abracadabra ! How do I turn this on?
