Croatia || Dubrovnik by night! And our sweet hostel...


Hvar? Check. Korcula? Check. Pristine beauty in Mljet? Check. We were finally on to our last stop in Croatia: Dubrovnik! Probably the very reason why we planned a trip to Croatia was because of Dubrovnik…we had seen so many pictures over the years and just had to go! The fact that we were there in peak season and during the Dubrovnik Festival meant that it was crawling with tourists. But that view over Dubrovnik’s red-roofed old city onto the Adriatic did not disappoint. Upon arrival, we were greeted by our gracious Croatian hostel owner (of Family Stanos pension!) and his cute/crazy daughter (who…I swear she spoke better English than me! Her pops said she learned it from Cartoon Network…and oh ya, she’s only 5-years-old and loves iPhones). She clearly got her craziness from her dad…this guy should have been a comedian…and a bootlegger because he proceeded to welcome us with his homemade moonshine. Fortunately he didn't mind that the bottle was empty by the time we ventured into the old town...probably because he drank most of it ;).
