A visual diary: 2 days in Dubrovnik

(Far too) short but (so very) sweet, my recent whistle-stop trip to Dubrovnik was just what I needed to ease me into a post-uni, pre-"real world" chill state, aided by the company of my darlin' Durham chums. As you'll gather from this lil selection of holiday snaps, the stunning surroundings didn't make the de-stress process too hard either...

Fortunate enough to have lovely Joe's Croatian crib as our base (just wow), we took our fun very seriously and did something we had to train ourselves to do: absolutely nothing. Quite the (ever so welcome) novelty indeed.  

Of course, that's not to say we didn't indulge in such luxuries as reading for pure pleasure (ah!), taking lil road trips into Dubrovnik's famed Old Town (big up designated driver Donal), basking in the hot hot sunshine and bathing in our back garden, viz. the Adriatic Sea. This in-between-student-and-proper-official-adult lark is alright. 

Although I joined the party a few days late, and so managed just 48 hours in the ravishing Croatian retreat (to call the past few weeks hectic would be a big old understatement), this didn't detract from the next level calm I felt as I somewhat begrudgingly departed my two-day trip of tranquility. And the sun-induced golden glow I returned to London with certainly wasn't unwelcome either, even if it did make siblet just a tad envious (muahaha).

Round-the-clock sun chillin' and incredible scenery aside, though, what really made it significant was the rare - and to be ever rarer - opportunity to revel in each other's contented company and accumulate gorgeous little moments to store in the memory bank (and, when appropriate, capture on my camera too). 

Pardon the sentimentality, but as all of us uni folk embark on new paths, in different - and indeed, international - settings, these final few weeks before graduation seem to be marked with all the more specialness. And this little trip felt very special indeed.  


  1. Your photography is absolutely beautiful! I've always wanted to travel to Croatia to visit the Plitvice Lakes. Your pictures are tempting me to visit Dubrovnik as well! I also love that you got to visit before graduation. That makes the trip all that much more memorable.


    1. Aww, thank you Rabia! That's so lovely of you to say - and I definitely recommend Dubrovnik <3
