This year we decided to go somewhere different, we stayed in a little town called Lapad In Dubrovnik Croatia. We stayed at the Hotel Kompas a Four Star Plus hotel right on the beach. I say beach but it was all pebbles. Lapad is relatively quiet resort but it is still in its infancy as far as tourism is concerned, there are many hotels still being built. These hotels are high end four and five star hotels with high quality fixtures and fittings. Dubrovnik Old Town is a short bus ride away some ten to fifteen minutes away and is probably the busiest City i have ever been to. Its popularity has been boosted by the hit HBO series Game of Thrones as much of it was filmed in Dubrovnik as well as a little island , Locrum just off the coast of Dubrovnik.
The above image is probably my best image of the trip and was taken before we had even got to the hotel. The taxi driver we had pre booked was a genuine nice guy who loved his city. He was more of a tour guide pointing out points of interest all the way along, as we approached Dubrovnik from a road above he asked if we wanted to make a photo ! He pulled off the main road to a viewing area, we climbed up some stairs to take this shot. He then went and got the car so it was waiting for us when we got to the bottom of the stairs, best transfer we have ever had !
During our week we visited many places, one of our favourites was where they filmed the Kings Landing.
