The musings of a final year medical student

Wednesday, 17 August 2016


This week I was lucky enough to visit Dubrovnik, Croatia with some of my friends from school. Despite not being a game of thrones fan, I still had a fantastic time!

The temperature was around 29 degrees Celsius each day which was too hot for my liking! We spent our days looking around Old Town, visiting the beaches, going up the cable car and visiting the island Lokrum. I also had pizza every single day.

We stayed in a very basic hostel, but to be honest I was just happy that it had air conditioning. As well as that, it was fantastic distance from Old Town. Opposite the hostel was a very hipster bar called Arts Cafe, and served a wide variety of cocktails.

One thing I didn't know about Dubrovnik was how romantic it was. The beautiful alleys of Old Town had plenty of live music, usually jazz or romantic violins. I had to pinch myself as I sipped on a cocktail, listening to a live band and watching the sun set and dip beneath the bright blue sea.

Overall, I would say you need a good three days, perhaps more for Dubrovnik. This will give you time to do the city wall walk (which is 75% off with a student card), visit one of the islands, go up the cable car, do a game of thrones tour if you wish, and soak up the atmosphere of Old Town.
