For years I have dreamt of visiting Croatia, in particular Dubrovnik.
Seduced by the iconic pictures of St John’s fortress imposingly towering over the Adriatic while a picture postcard beach shimmers in the foreground.
Starting and ending in Dubrovnik, our whistle stop tour covered over 800 miles and included heading north upto Split and further afield to the stunning national parks of Plitvice and Krka, a brief stop in Trogir and a hair raising jaunt into Bosnia to see the beautiful town of Mostar.
Dubrovnik is a stunning old town hewn from shining white stone that is sadly overwhelmed by endless tour groups that pour forth from the leviathan cruise ships that hover in the ports.
The old town is incredible, almost unreal in its beauty, and almost feels staged like a film set (indeed we only just missed the infamous nude Games of Thrones scene that was filmed a few days before we arrived)
