Having just driven in from Dubrovnik, Nick and I decided to keep our medieval walled city streak alive by making Old Town Kotor our first stop while in Montenegro. The triangular old town, which sits tucked up against the mountains, is much more mellow and quaint than it’s Croatian neighbor.
Along the scenic, windy road around the Bay of Kotor sits a picture perfect little town located on the water’s edge. Perast is tiny, in fact, you could make it from end to end about 10 minutes if you’re walking slow.
I live for one of a kind experiences and ‘off the beaten path hidden gems. The kinds of places that aren’t crawling with tourists, and have have yet to climb the ranks of TripAdvisor. When we were in Montenegro, I stumbled upon such a place.
With it’s turquoise waters, orange rooftops and of course, that medieval wall, Dubrovnik is one of the most beautiful cities I’ve ever seen..
Airing on TV screens in 170 countries, Game of Thrones is most popular show in the world. While the series is filmed in about 7 different countries, Dubrovnik is used to film most of the exterior shots of King’s Landing.
Most people can’t wait to get inside of Old Town Dubrovnik’s city walls, and rightly so. It’s stunning and unique, and just an overall picture perfect little town. Unfortunately with only a 1.
As we were wandering through the back alleys of Old Town Dubrovnik, avoiding the crowds, we came upon a yellow sign, “cold drinks with the most beautiful view.” I don’t think there’s a single phrase that would signal a stronger YES in my heart than that.
Have you ever loved a place so much, while simultaneously avoiding it at all costs? That’s how I feel about Old Town Dubrovnik. The first glimpse I saw of the Old City was when we were winding our way around the mountain on the airport shuttle bus. I actually gasped when I saw it.
778 meters above Dubrovnik sits a picture perfect restaurant with a mind-blowing view. Whether you eat dinner or simply grab a drink, a trip to Panorama Restaurant is a must do while in Dubrovnik.
For one of Nick’s birthday surprises while in Dubrovnik, I wanted to take him out on the water. There are tons of group tours to the Elafiti Islands from Dubrovnik, but since it’s his 30th birthday I wanted to find a more private & special option.
