Trip Report Barb's Fab Adventures in Cotswolds, London and Croatia

Jump to last reply

This was my first trip to UK and 5th trip to Croatia.

A little background:--- My 1st trip to Croatia in 2006, was a celebration of my independence and a return to solo travel and living out a dream that started in a hotel room in Paris in 2003, while watching a Croatian Tourist Infomercial on TV and being totally wowed by the sheer beauty of what I was watching.

And,, then fast forward to 2006, after a week in Paris, a week in Dubrvonik and then a week in Rome , I knew I had to return to Dubrovnik. When I found myself standing in front of St. Blais on Independence Day, 08/10, listening to a wonderful, patriotic, band, with the sun on my face and chocking back tears of sheer joy, I KNEW I had to return, it was an overwhelming feeling of being at peace and at home.

So, again fast forward to 2007, after deciding that I was going to go back to Croatia, and basing myself in Dubrovnik for THREE WEEKS!!! perusing Fodors for any tidbits about Croatia, I noticed Julial_t , was thinking about going to Croatia and then .... after many emails, we arranged to meet in Mostar, she hiring a car and driving from Split/Trogir to Mostar and me, taking the bus from DBV to meet her there. I will refer to that as the bus trip from hell, but back to that later.

We had a wonderful time in Mostar and then on to DBV and... well the rest is history. Ever since we have been meeting up in DBV.
