Perfect day trip destination - Locrum island
The very picturesque island near Dubrovnik, only 15 mins by boat. Green, with great trees and flowers and remnants of the old monastery and fortress.
A lot of people visit it for a day-trip, so did we. Beach activities in combination with sightseeing.
Along the main Stradun and off on the left as you walk away from the City gate you see glimpses of winding staircases, hanging laundry and open windows. These lend a view of local townfolk.....so step away and up!
Scenery From Sipan Island...
There are many small & uncharted islands around the Elafiti archeopelago.
If I had my own boat, I would chart myself on all these islands !
Look at the photo on the left. It looks like the surface of the moon or something...
Oh, by the way, on the boat with me :
An Irish couple, a French couple, husband & wife duos, & some old ladies from UK & USA.
Cheery as they were,...they were amazed of my travel stories !
Err, I was the youngest !
Small square, big fun
This cool square on the eastern end of the Old Town is a great place to come and have a drink. There are a couple other bars here that give the place the feeling of being somewhat of a "nightlife central." This place is small and I imagine pretty cramped, especially during the peak season when I'm sure the crowd spills out into the square. Despite the name, there was no jazz on the night I was here.
