Hey, friends! Back with some photos from my trip – to Croatia (City of Dubrovnik) this time! I’ll start with a few, and continue with the rest in an upcoming post. It was a beautiful place but I am really tired after the journey, you see! I hope you enjoy these pics, I’ll try to tell you a bit about what you’re seeing in each photo. So it will be as if you were there with me, as usual…   😉

I didn’t really have time to catch up on blog reading, but I hope to do so this week! I missed you, guys! Lemme know what you think of the pics! Hugs from Survived!

The thing that hit me first was – goddamn it – the heat in the Mediterranean area in summer is no joke! Especially if you are from a moderate/temperate climate, like I am…. We almost melted away from heat, luckily we had A/C in our accommodation, so we ran there for shelter after a while, most days. I usually don’t take cold showers, but here, I DID!

Now, as you can see from the pics, Dubrovnik has quite a lot of history to it, since more than a thousand years back, according to what our guide said. A lot of these buildings we saw in the old town were from like the 15th – 18th century, since a lot of the extremely old buildings were destroyed in The Great Earthquake in the 1600’s. Still, the Old Town had a wonderful, genuine feeling to it!

We found our way to one of the beaches within city limits. The Mediterranean is wonderful with its green blue shades and it is a refuge from the sweltering heat in the summer. Still , in July there are crowds everywhere within the city so it is recommended you leave the city and go to smaller towns etc, for swimming.
