Leaving on a Jet Plane

31 05 2016

My annual trip to Cannes is here.  Used to be in January and since last year in June and if I’m counting right, this would be my 25th year…

But my first stop is Berlin a stop I’m looking forward to as I have a little bit of off time though the weather forecast not looking great.

My flight on time

Seems my flight decided to take off earlier than scheduled. Good thing I am actually at the airport early.

To Market! in Dubrovnik

30 05 2016

The main market in Dubrovnik, Croatia was a few bus stops away from the Old City, in a neighborhood called Gruz.

The fish section is indoors.

Lunching and Breakfasting in Dubrovnik

29 05 2016

I went to a very popular restaurant, both amongst locals and tourists so I’ve read, for my second lunch in Dubrovnik, Croatia.  My expectations were really high so I was a bit disappointed by my dish but looking around, I saw what other people were eating and came to the conclusion that I just ordered the wrong dish (though for a restaurant that’s no excuse).

Now this was very very good.

Now this was very very good.

And this is from my last morning in town.  Fun.  Yum.

Drinking with a View

28 05 2016

The apartment I was staying in in Dubrovnik, Croatia was called “Old Town View Apartments” and sure enough that was the view I had from my balcony.

I tried to make use of it as much as possible by sitting outside and admiring the view and feeling refreshed.

Like so.

Such is the luxury of renting an apartment as well as being able to prepare meals to your liking.

And if I looked in the other direction, this was my view.

Cats of Dubrovnik!

27 05 2016

The number of cats I saw in Dubrovnik, Croatia was insane.  The most in one concentrated area I saw in the past had probably been in a cemetery in Buenos Aires, Argentina.  This was over a much more spread out area but really there were lots.
