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.
Our first views of Dubrovnik from the hotel
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 spent the day exploring the old roads of Dubrovnik
We took way too many pics
And the weather cooperated – not a cloud in the sky!
Selfies down by the sea
Sun hat, pink sunglasses and sunshine
This little Game of Thrones addict was in absolute heaven and was fan-girling all over the place
Luckily she was an excellent instagram husband for me
We drank by the seaside and enjoyed the insane views
Dubrovnik Old Town
We obviously required as much gelato as possible
Big churches and blue skies
Posey pants all over town
The pirates came to town
So we headed to the city walls
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!
