Hey everyone! I said I would update you with a Croatian travel diary and let you know where I stayed etc., and here it is! I am no longer in Croatia, I took a flight out of Dubrovnik on Tuesday, into Newark in New Jersey, USA! Then took a connecting flight to Ohio, to finally stay with Christen! Remember I was telling you guys on 4th of July that I wanted to finally get to the United States and spend my time with Christen? Well, I’m FINALLY HERE! It was almost a full 24 hour day of travelling. The flight from Croatia to Newark was almost 10 hours, and then I had a 4 hour layover, then an hour and a half flight into Columbus, Ohio, where Christen met me. After knowing each other online for an extremely long time, to finally be in person is amazing! So I will be updating you all with a post on how things are here, and a USA travel diary too, but for now, check out my photos below and what happened in Croatia!
I absolutely love these photos here at sunset! As you know I travelled to Croatia alone for 16 days, but I did end up making friends. There were a couple of girls in the same apartment building as me, and they were alone too, and we hit it off! You can see some pics of them below, but I’ve definitely made friends for life and it was so much fun going out to dinner sometimes and sightseeing! The sunsets were beyond stunning though, so you can’t really go wrong with photos.
Some gorgeous shots of Cavtat, Dubrovnik, Croatia. It’s simply stunning!
A couple of selfies, as I was used to hanging out on my own and eating out alone too. One of my favourite meals was at a place called Zino and it was chicken breast stuffed with ham and cheese, with a cheese sauce and fries, and it was absolutely incredible! I literally ate there 4 days in a row! Ha ha.
The sunsets were something else here! They are absolutely amazing, I couldn’t get enough of them!
A few selfies that I took!
Some more really gorgeous scenery views!
These lovely ladies were the friends that I made. Gauri and Valentina. I’m so happy that I made friends there and it made the holiday even more enjoyable.
At night time it’s so lovely in Cavtat. The people are friendly, it’s super safe, and I cannot recommend this place enough. I stayed at Viola Cavtat Rooms, which is up the hill a bit and about a 20 minute walk to the town, so it was the perfect location. I had views of the mountains and the lady that runs the place is SO nice! She’s so friendly and kind, welcoming, and made me feel like family. If you are staying in Cavtat, I cannot recommend her place enough. I am definitely going back there next year and taking my mum! I didn’t stay for free or receive any discount, this is me loving the place so much that I’m genuinely recommending it. Here’s a link to Viola Cavtat Rooms. I even had my own balcony! Anyway, let me know what you think of this blog post! I’m so happy to be travelling! Lorna xx.
