Dubrovnik

In my attempt to see all of Europe before returning stateside, I managed to overlap part of my pre-departure unemployment with my London bestie’s funemployment…. divine. So we decided to take a bye bye bestie girls’ trip to Dubrovnik for four days. We opted for the mid-week, end of September option which meant uber cheap, all inclusive resort about 15 minutes from the Old Town where the average age was approximately 74 years old. But don’t fret, it was exactly what the doctor ordered.

We did the token touristy trip into the Old Town, we drank cocktails by the pool, we got massages and laid in the sun, we ate a ton of food in the all inclusive buffet, we tried the horrific discount wine then opted for more cocktails, we read the same book (and had a live running bookclub), we laughed and talked and went to bed early… it was DIVINE.

Blue skies and a big pool – all we really needed for our four days in Dubrovnik

11am, cocktails by the pool – perfection

Who needs a job when you can just travel….

We took way too many pics

And the weather cooperated – not a cloud in the sky!

This little Game of Thrones addict was in absolute heaven and was fan-girling all over the place

We drank by the seaside and enjoyed the insane views

Big churches and blue skies

Posey pants all over town

The pirates came to town

for more sunshine and pics

Could not have been happier to have escaped with my bestie for a farewell girls trip

We spent hours lounging, talking, reading, sunning, drinking and laughing

And every evening the views were spectacular

We would stay poolside till dusk and then head in for the senior citizens’ buffet (September/midweek tourists delight!)

And were in bed fast asleep earlier than ever before when we were lawyering together – I miss this crazy little kumquat more than life itself – please please move to New York!
