After taking the better part of a day exploring the Bosnian country side, poking around ruins, and swerving around mountain roads we crossed the boarder into Croatia. We had an Airbnb booked in Dubrovnik, our host suggested we stop off in his hometown on the way to get dinner. Driving down the coast we pulled off into the small town of Ston for a lovely sidewalk table style seafood dinner.
Back on the road we entered the tourist packed Dubrovnik. Dubrovnik is a walled city, fortified for attack from sea and land. It presents an amazing scene. We were instantly blown away by how beautiful the city was. Small side paths with dozens of steps cutting between old buildings. Arriving at night gave us the entire place to ourselves. We wandered the deserted streets stumbling upon famous scenes from Game of Thrones. During our walk we came upon a hole in the wall. On the other side we found a bar cut into the cliffs of the walled city. A glass of wine in hand we stat on the edge of a cliff and listened to the quite crashing of waves. It was a great end to a long day of exploring.
In the morning we woke up to a completely different Dubrovnik. The tourists were out in full force, the quite ancient city transformed into a Disney world of the old world. Food was American-ized and higher in price. We'd planned to spend 2 days in Dubrovnik but that plan changed quickly. We grabbed tickets to walk around the top of the wall and then made out way out of Croatia towards Kotor, Montenegro.
