Imagine 4 days in a beautiful hotel on the coast, crystal clear blue water, sunshine and a surroundings of a truly historic place dated from 7th century.....Sounds like an ideal escape place to wander around, taste gorgeous food and relax..... Yes it does;-)

.....And it would have been if not the fact that these 4 days I spent in Dubrovnik (and Cavtat) were just a business trip for a distribution conference and therefore this isn't really a true travel journal of Myself and Tomek exploring Dalmatian coast ;-(

Nevertheless, I decided to share some photos of this astonishing, postcard perfect place and keep a memory of it ;-) We both have been to Croatia before but separately. I visited Istria region together with my family where we explored Medulin and Pula with the amazingly preserved Roman Colosseum and amphitheaters; as well as Split Region and Zadar in Northern Dalmatia region. Tomek and his family also visited Split region few times.

As this was the comeback after almost 10 years I was very excited about all the activities planned around the conference time. We had a private tour of Dubrovnik City and very romantic Cavtat Port as well as 2h cruise alongside the coast where I could spot some dolphins swimming along our boat ;-) We were also taken to the panorama view point n by cable car to admire the view at night. I loved every bit of the sightseeing part but first of all I felt like a tourist - having had to: adhere to the schedule, being taken by the big bus, raising hand and waiting for my time to ask the guide a question and queuing to take a photo; secondly and most importantly I did not have my travel buddy with me to share this with him ;-(

I had a chance to do something new as well - did my first scuba dive ever ;-) Scary, yet very exciting experience. After only 10 min of the classroom explanation we spent 1h under water at the depth of 10m . Again felt quite guilty that Tomek could not do that with me but we will do the proper license course soon so no worries;-)

Overall great time that reminded me of how gorgeous this place is ;-) Now I feel like doing some kind of Tour the Croatia ;-)
