First Impressions of Dubrovnik

Well, the trip started off lagging. Our flight was delayed... an hour. But not the ok kind of delay where you sit in the airport and have an extra cup of coffee... the kind of delay where they put you on the plane anyways and make you sit there for an hour while they bang away on the plane. Not reassuring. What kills me? The fact that they didn't even MENTION of the delay. Not one word. Instead, we all just sat there (well, not A, he laid there snoring for the hour), wondering what's going on.

But thankfully, that has been the onl (cross your fingers) bad part. Picking up our rental was quick and painless.. and we got a 4 door so our trips with Shanna and Chris will not be crammed. The drive from Dubrovnik to Zaton Bay (where we're staying... right on the water.. yesssss) was absolutely beautiful, even at 9:30 at night (I do love the European summers). The address of our house was not in the GPS, but thankfully, the owner sent directions, which were, 'stay on the same road past Dubrovnik for 30 minutes.' Detailed. Surprisingly, no issue. The one turn we did have to make at the very end of the 30 minute drive, the road that the house was on, we missed of course. But found it. And all in time to go watch the Croatian soccer game on TV. Woo!

The place where we're staying in half awesome, half not so awesome. The location is fabulous. We are close enough to Dubrovnik to go just for dinner, like we did last night for dinner and a little sightseeing, but far enough that we're away from the crazy cruise tourists of Dubrovnik. This house is right on the water. I mean, how can you complain about that?! The apartment itself? Well, not so special. But the location, that does it for me. This will be a nice long last week.
