Dubrovnik: a story in pros and cons

I couldn’t do any kayak because it started to rain like crazy the day I had booked.

Kayak Dubrovnik


I didn’t have water for a whole day because there was construction work in my street.

I had to hold my laptop a little bit over the windowsill to get WiFi.

(And the windows didn’t exactly shut.)


My taxi couldn’t drop me by the door of my hostel, because cars don’t fit in the Old Town’s streets. So there’s no way to get a bus/cab in the middle of the night. You have to walk everywhere and everywhere are stairs. (And when it rains, the stairs become waterfalls.)

No holder for the shower head; I had to hold it as I washed in the 90-cm large shower.

I could literally touch the undies on the clothesline of the neighbour across.

    The city seems beautiful, and your little appartment too. I must admit just seeing your picture I get scared for your computer though haha.

  2. I reallyenjoyed reading your travel stories, Audrey. Beautiful photos of where you have been.
    I’m working on a memoir book, my first time trying to do this.
    I hope someday being as good as you are. Your blogg is the first one I have read. I’ve had an adventurous life and have a lot of things I want to tell in my memoir.
