Today we were in Dubrovnik, Croatia. We got into the port at 11 am and we set off for our first port on our cruise. Dubrovnik was a place we were unsure about when we first booked the cruise, but afterwards we really enjoyed our time here. The city has a rich history and had spectacular views of the Adriatic Sea. We learned all about the Yugoslavia War that started in 1991, and lasted for 5 years.
First, we got off the ship and boarded the bus and we headed to the cable car, which took us to the top of the local hill that looks above the city. The views were amazing!
After the cable car ride back down to the bottom of the hill, we took a walk into the old city walls. The city has one of the best-kept ancient city walls in the world. The city wall was spectacular and you can walk around the entire old city, and it is about 2 km in length.
After visiting the city we took the bus back to the port, where the ship was still docked. We got back on the ship and we headed to the pool/ hot tub. After the pool it was time for dinner.
Dinner was an interesting experience again tonight. We headed to the table and were surrounded by Irish & Australian people. The Australians kept telling us about their local sports, such as Australian Rules Football. The game was very interesting and he basically said anything goes, so that sounded like a fun game to play.
Tomorrow, we are heading to the Greek Island of Corfu.
Good night from somewhere in the Adriatic Sea.
