We got a shady spot, close to the site‘s facilities on a campground about 20 km away from Dubrovnik.
At night, it didn’t get „cooler“ than 26 degrees and we collected more mosquito bites. But we were all able to sleep
We took the 7 o‘clock bus to Dubrovnik. It was still quite some walk to the historic city. Despite lots of stairs, we managed the visit with our trolley.
Luckily, this early, there were only a few tourists. But it was already very hot. So we practiced our regular „shade hopping“ on our city tour ;oP
Dubrovnik is very popular for its distinctive Old Town, encircled with massive stone walls completed in the 16th century. Its well-preserved buildings range from Baroque over Renaissance to Gothic style.
Since we didn‘t want to bore our girls with museums, we called ourselves done with the city before noon. A look at the bus schedule made us run. If we missed that bus, we would have to wait for 2,5 h (!!!) for the next one. The way to the station was exhausting – all up the hill and no shade!
We made it just in time for the scheduled departure. In the end we had to wait for almost half an hour because the bus was late. The air conditioned bus and some terrific coast views were a great reward.
On the campground and in the city, there were many straying cats. They didn’t always want to be petted, but tried to bite.
