Dubrovnik in a Day

On the way to Mostar from Dubrovnik we drove along the coast; on the way back we drove through the mountains. Both views were incredible. I especially loved seeing the city emerge from the water.

Dubrovnik is probably best known for its city walls surrounding the old town. The wall was constructed over several hundred years--mainly during the 12th-17th centuries--and runs for more than a mile. Dan and I were in Dubrovnik for our honeymoon six years ago and walked the walls then. Though it is well-worth seeing, we decided not to do it again this time. It takes around an hour and a half, and it was a really hot day.

With no particular agenda, we did one of my favorite things to do when traveling: wander aimlessly. The old town is pretty small and can easily be seen in one day. I love the steep, narrow roads; flowing fountains; and stunning harbor.

You might recognize the harbor if you're a fan of Game of Thrones. Many of the King's Landing scenes were shot here. The Iron Throne was actually on tour when we were there. Doesn't Zahara look like a natural?

We stayed in an apartment outside of the old town near a small beach. Since it was such a beautiful day, we decided to take Zoey swimming before bed time. Though the water was a little chilly, Zahara loved it! She was giggling and splashing and trying to drink the salt water. It looks like our swim classes are definitely paying off!
