work email address and my number was on there, I don’t think he got the concept that I’m from Britain and you need to change the country code before dialling. At the time I was mad but now reflecting back on it I’m madder and
confused. After shouting at me about my false information I just think, why would I give him false information, I paid upfront and may I add more than it’s worth, why would I pay and give false information “ I paid, take my money, I’m not
coming, jokes on you!!”
With that out of the way, I will still recommend this place if you want somewhere with a spectacular view, at a reasonable price and decent apartment, although he decorated in Ikea and old lady
paintings so I felt like I was at my grandmothers, so that didn’t ring 4 star to me. Plus the bed wasn’t that comfortable, wait, why am I recommending this place?
Oh yes the elegant surprise at the
bottom of the road, you’re near a fantastic bay filled with a long strip of elegant local restaurants, cafes and bars, there’s even a beach, sun loungers and pools at your disposal. It was a bit of shock as we saw 2 bars and thought, oh well that’s
it and then BAM waiters and placards with menus on as far as the eye can see!!
There’s even shops so good if you are in an apartment and need to do a shop, don’t get confused and go in the nearest shop you see, there’s
a massive Tommy (equivalent of Tesco/ Walmart) behind the mall. Some idiot thought “lets go in this small shop that must be it” Also in Dubrovnik, a “short cut” is normally 14 flights of rocky stairs, or you can do the sensible thing
and walk around the street until you get to your destination.
Another thing I need to comment on is that Dubrovnik is a bit more expensive but somehow felt smaller than Split but you’re paying for the luxury of the bay
and port area and game of thrones location, which is located in Old Town, you can get a number 5/6 bus to get there from Babin Kuk (AGAIN can’t say these words so it’s called babadook in my head)
of I know what you are intrigued about the filming location of game of thrones, old town is how it sounds and is a MAJOR tourist attraction, that houses loads of old citizens and tourists, oh wait a min, who is that mature blonde lady with a pink visor? OH
Yes, for you GOT fanatics then you’ll know a lot of it is CGI’ed, it’a lot smaller than compared to the small screen show but it’s still amazing and a bit of a maze. Although
most of the castles and large buildings are not there but loads of neat streets and homes that are nicely decorated and well preserved considering some of it was built in 11th century, especially the old churches, towers and port. Also I need to alert you
of something, even though it’s old town and it’s a historical site, people still live here and modernised it.
Thankfully the special effects team of GOT are on the ball when we saw the “ye old basketball
court” and “come hither to archaic kids playground”
As I mentioned Dubrovnik had this ludicrous idea that several flights of stairs equates to a shortcut, I advise trainers at all time, no high heels lads!
Its super busy and there’s loads of walking tours too so try your best to avoid the main routes the cross junctions. Andy unfortunately had a run in with an elderly Scottish lady when they got in each others way, some cross words came from her “You
better watch where you’re going before you start trouble” oh dear those two need to fight, I know he meant nothing it by it but I know what he was thinking (insert “ancient bitch from 30 rock”), Also if you want to go on the defence
wall walkways you need to pay but that’s up to you, I just went to the highest point and jumped up with a camcorder (Footage not found or useful)
Again loads of restaurants, bars and cafes and all that tourist jazz,
I can’t really recommend a place as they were all quite similar, so go by price or the shallow option, how tight the trousers are on the waiter!
By the way I forgot to mention everywhere you go coffee is cheap
like £1.50 however their “large” coffee is the equivalent to our small, if Starbucks come here, everyone is going to go out of business or need to flee to IKEA for upgrades. Just say Croatia, bigger is better, IT’S COFFEE NOT A 8 YEARS
OLD TEA PARTY!
Also mentioning the cost you pay a tourism and city tax you need to pay goes to……I don’t know, perming the seagulls hair, it’s definitely not to fix the broken pavement, that be crazy.
And before I go I have to give this a black people moment, yes its all cool here, as I said in my Bulgaria blog, I felt like a celebrity there, like a fat woman stops eating and drops her cutlery to look at me (probably thought I was
actual chocolate) while in Croatia they are like “ oh look at that silly tourist with the dainty camcorder bag” they had Pharrel Williams posters up and a small ghetto in each town, I think they’re clued up!
the whole I recommend Croatia to anyone but mainly adults, not a lot for kids here in terms of activity, if you can try and do some island hopping as that’s where the sandy beaches are, I’m dubious about leaving details for the 3rd place but that’s
to your discretion and curiosity and if you’re a massacist for pain and embarrassment.
Till Next time followers, Aye aye from your Croatian lover.
