A Relaxing 4 Days in Dubrovnik

In the summer of 2018 I spent a relaxing 4 Days in Dubrovnik, Croatia filled with sun, swimming and plenty of exploring. In this post I talk about what I did in these few days and what I would do if I went back.

COVID-19 Update

As someone in the travel community I understand how hard it is not traveling now and having to cancel plans but it is so necessary to do so. We have to have to as a community think about more than just ourselves and the minor inconvenience we feel not being able to travel or do things like go out to bars and restaurants. We need to consider people that don’t have the luxury of being healthy or having a strong immune system and we need to social distance as much as possible not just for our health but for theirs. We need to put aside our wants and focus on others needs and come together as a community to make sure everyone is taken care of. Please be safe and stay healthy both physically and mentally in this difficult time and the difficult times to come! I will be posting about past trips during this time until I have the ability to safely go on future trips so stay tuned!
