Oh man, Ive missed you guys – I only been away 4 days, what a trip! Everywhere I go lately I’m blogging in my mind, describing what I’m seeing and experiencing. I been to Dubrovnik, what a trip! It seems mad to spend the day in this amazingly warm place full of tourists just there for the sheer enjoyment, and yet be home in your own cold wet and windy heavily industrialised – awful yet jolly humorous country and bed – if not the same day, then at least by 3am – but at what a cost – no not monetary, I mean hassle! You got to drive over the moors to Manchester, then you got to get the parking took care of and a bus to the airport, the madness of security, get to the gate literally 5mins before its closed then onto the plane like sardines for 3hrs of death defying flight – all that palaver -then on the way home, rather than being almost too late, we were too early, and had to kill an hr or 2, what a drag, carrying all those bags, and standing about, and then he says there’s a storm over the UK so buckle up, its gona get crazy! It didn’t as it turned out, had worse before. Then you get to Manchester, they replaced all the passport officers with machines, you got to do it yourself – there’s just the one guy overseeing it – its like the supermarket theses days, with the self checkout, er, can you verify I’m old enough to buy 10 bottles of whisky and some meths plz??
You guys are gona love the photos, Dubrovnik is beautiful, like Florence, but walled, such thick walls, and so high, and its a harbour too, so its like a walled fortified city on the sea, its amazing! Much of Game of Thrones was filmed there, and you do half expect to bump into a character from it at any moment, also, its warmer then here! Did I mention that? Weather here has been shite since about 1900 or something, over there, you could walk about in a leather G-string or something without the slightest discomfort! The girls! They’re everywhere, beautiful girls and women in summer wear, I’m mad for beautiful women, its a lot like Florence and Rome, beautiful women! I forgot far more thoughts than actually went through my mind at the time – this is how life is meant to be lived!
There are loads of cats in the old city, they seem to be well fed and healthy, and not at all bothered by tourists. we did a day trip to the island of Lokrum, its got loads of rabbits and peacocks on it as you’ll see, I duno what else to tell you except its warmer than here, and there’s loads of women all dressed in summer gear, so thats nice! The architecture is refreshing, food is ok, they eat lots of fish, and its beautiful wherever you eat – the whole of the old city is a UNESCO heritage site, so you’ll not go wrong, lot of beautiful stuff, like women, and buildings, and cats – yeah, good one! We had 4 days, (3 nights) you need longer in Florence / Rome, but its smaller and easier to walk around, no traffic really at all in the old part, our daily breakfast was at the restaurant in the first picture, can’t fault the view can you!
[Edit] The list of photos is meant to work as a slideshow, but it doesn’t here, so I’m going to add in an actual slideshow (of the same list) + see if it works better
