Dubrovnik, Croatia

CROATIA | Sunday, 22 May 2016 | Views [260]

Friday, 20 May

We arrived into Dubrovnik late in the afternoon, then went out for a final farewell dinner together, before touring the old town with a local guide. The old town is completely inclosed by a thick fortress wall which can be walked (it takes about 1hr to make the full circuit), and is built all in marble. It was so beautiful, especially lit up at night and filled with romantic cafes. I regret that I did not have enough time to explore the town more and would have liked to have had a few days there. After the tour, we all went out for drinks, but I wasn’t really feeling the vibe, so I left early and went back to the hotel. It's a good thing too, because by the time I got back, I began to feel nauseous and was soon emptying the contents of my stomach in a rather violent manner. It was a rough night and I didn’t get any sleep, unable to even keep water down. I was in desperately poor form Saturday morning, and struggled to make my way to the marina, where I boarded the Busabout boat for the 8 day Croatia Sail. Getting on a rocking boat was probably the worst thing I could have done in my condition, but I managed to keep it together for a few hours to introduce myself to the other passengers, then went straight to my cabin (which I thankfully had to myself) and slept for the remainder of the day and night. Luckily not much went down that night, so I didn’t missed anything.
