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.Read More
Today we did the City Wall walk of Dubrovnik Old Town. Tickets are 150 Kuna and include the City walls and entry to the fort the other side of Kings Landing . The walk of the walls probably took around two to two and a half hours , we got here fairly early on a cloudy morning which was perfect as we neared the end the sun was at its highest and the temperature rose quickly.
The cloudy start made for some atmospheric images again can't wait to edit the Dslr files.
Arrived safe and well in Croatia and today was our first full day and headed straight down to the old town as my wife was dying to see kings landing , what a place. Timed it right as we got off the bus we headed straight down to it. There were hardly anyone around so took advantage of getting some images before the tours arrived.
will post more as and when I can , look forward to editing Dslr files
