Dubrovnik

I'm just back from a week in Dubrovnik with Ian, Matthew and Chris. We were staying at the Hilton just outside the walls of Dubrovnik Old Town.






The Old Town itself is a lovely walled city with a beautiful broad main street and many narrow stepped alley ways leading off from it. There are beautiful buildings including two old monastries, a couple of notable fountains and statues and a bustling harbour.





The streets were populated by some colourful characters:





We walked right around the walls, which are impressive fortifications with fort like bastions, giving wonderful views of both the city and the surrounding Adriatic coastline









We also visited a number of off shore islands during our trip, but I think I will make them into a separate post....

    Those all look gorgeous, especially the last island with the lovely lake. I like the way the peacock muscled into the photograph. Christopher looks really well and you all seem to have had a superb…
