The time has come to wave a very fond goodbye to glorious Croatia (for now at least…) so here’s a few last shots of Dubrovnik.
With its plethora of enchanting buildings, stunning countryside and budget friendly accommodation, Croatia was a revelation.
Here’s the Stradun and Onofrio’s large fountain again all bathed in lovely lovely Croatian sunshine *wistful sigh*
Here’s us trying to defeat the mythical gargoyle or Maskeron.
If you enter the Old Town of Dubrovnik by the Pile Gate walk along the Stradun and you’ll see a strange stone head protruding from a stone wall.
The head stands some half a meter above the ground, sticking out barely fifteen centimeters. Its top surface is polished like marble.
Legend has it that if you manage to hop onto the head, keep your balance, and take off your shirt while still standing facing the wall, luck in love will follow you.
Neil has technique whereas I just repeatedly hurl myself at the wall in hope…
Then it’s off for a last mooch around the harbour and time to take a bracing dip with the locals! Check out the glorious azure sea water!
I’m a bit of a water baby and tend to end up in any large bodies of water that I come across. However I am also a huge wuss.
Until finally I am submerged and at one with the lapping waves.
And there I stayed until I was good and wrinkled.
That’s it for Croatia folks. A hectic week of travelling hundreds of miles, getting hopelessly lost and falling head over heels in love with a breathtaking country.
