We got up early to walk the city walls when they opened at 8. We figured we would avoid the hottest part of the day and as many pesky tourists as possible (!). This is one of the highlights of Dubrovnik - the guidebook gave us the history behind each tower and stretch of wall and nature did the rest - it was just beautiful.
We spent the rest of the morning and afternoon exploring all around the town, every alleyway brings you to another gorgeous vista or quaint corner. We visited the oldest pharmacy in Europe and St. Spa's church. We spotted some people eating a mouth-watering burek so traced their steps and found some of our own - spinach and cheese for Dave and vegetable for Aileen. The steps of the nearby church provided a perfect spot to relax and enjoy. Refreshed and reinforced, we followed the inside of the city wall on the south, and found another sea front bar named Buza, where we watched the crystal clear sea for a while. The afternoon was used for taking a nap and getting some admin done for our much neglected travel blog - too much to see, not enough time to capture it all.
Some more photo time was needed before dinner at Mea Culpa for a perfect capriccioso pizza and a couple draught Favorit beers. Our last evening stroll brought us back to the harbor. St. Blaise's church and the city bell tower in the town square are so beautiful at night, the whole place is really. All of the streetlights happened to go out, so the almost full moon stood out even more prominently. And so back to the room, to do a little bit of work on the ridiculous number of photos taken in Croatia and have an early night. This is a truly beautiful country, and we're already looking forward to our next visit.
