Today we’ve walked up Mount Srd, which is over 400 metres high... not even half the height of a Snowdonia mountain, but high for around here, especially from sea level in a relatively short distance. Everyone looked at us as though we were mad walking up, because most people get the cable car. When John... Continue Reading →
Mutiny on the Lipi!
Yesterday, we booked a 3 Island cruise for today, a 6-hour trip from Dubrovnik, west along the Croatian coast and back via the islands of Lopud, Sipan and Kolocep, including some beautiful caves. We were advised that the boat would have 2 decks, with shaded and sunny areas, a party zone at the front (although... Continue Reading →
A lazy day at the seaside
The forecast was good for today, and we’ve done lots and lots of walking over the last 4 days so we decided to have a lazy day today. We’ve been to the beach this morning. On the way met John and Jane who arrived on the same day as us. We enjoy their company, and... Continue Reading →

As forecast, it's been blowing a gale today. We had a lie in and went down to breakfast at 9.30, only to be told we'd missed it... It finished at 10.00. The lady cleaning suggested we'd forgotten about the clocks changing. We looked at each other confused... We'd both changed our watches... And the TV... Continue Reading →
We've travelled to Dubrovnik in Croatia today. After too much wine and Chinese last night, I unfortunately woke at 2.48 and couldn't get back to sleep. As if getting up at 4.15 wasn't going to be bad enough! Never mind, at least I had time for a leisurely brew and a long cuddle with Millie... Continue Reading →
