After a solid seven days of driving, and ticking eight countries off our list, we had a free day in Dubrovnik. This is a location I have wanted to visit for several years now, yes since Game of Thrones became a worldwide phenomenon.
So after a long day, the choice was made to head into Dubrovnik’s Old Town as soon as we were hitched up and ready. To say I was excited may have been a slight understatement, not only am I going for a dinner in a restaurant but I will be eating in the streets of King’s Landing (sorry, another Game of Thrones reference).
The beauty of the site we stayed at for 2 days, Camp Solitudo, is that it was only a 10-minute drive from the Old Town. The parking can be tricky as it is a tourist hotspot right on the sea and the amount of visitors is astonishing.
Once we got to the Old Town, we were spoilt for choice for places to eat and drink. Luckily, the research had been done and we knew where we were heading. The choice for the evening’s dinner was a seafood restaurant right on the ocean. The one thing I do not really eat is fish and the meat option at this eatery, and this is not a joke, was a ham and cheese sandwich. Not wanting a sarnie for dinner, I picked the grilled squid with garlic. The dish blew me away, considering I’m not really a fan of fish. I loved it.
Later on that evening, we did a tour of the bars around town and ended up finding a late night establishment to have a nightcap.
