After our departure from Croatia we decided to take an overnight ferry to Italy (Ancona). The ferry was cool, nice and big. I consistently referred to it as the Titanic, and my Aunt wasn't a fan of that reference. Well we didn't sink and made it to Ancona. Which is an armpit of a city. Sorry Italy.
After that we decided to have lunch in Bologna, Italy. Which is a college town, and a pretty chill city. We had a delightful lunch of fresh salads and pasta with Bolognese sauce.

I don't know why I make a big deal about having a little road side lunch in Bosnia last week with my aunt. It could possibly be because growing up I heard the word "Bosnia" and associated it with war (Oh, 90's baby that I am).
Well we stopped at this little spot, had some "traditional bosnia coffee" (not my thanggg, I couldn't handle it). I noticed that this little town of Neum, Bosnia was beautiful...and as i mentioned before it is there own port access and actually a nice little area. Growing with new building projects and more travelers.

Some more photos from Dubrovnik, Croatia. I really loved this little town. There were tons of stairs, which I didn't mind. The sea was insane, and showed plenty of it's personality to us. We climbed down the side of this mountain to take some photos near the water, while we were down there we witnessed some of it's intensity and decide to go back up near this cafe. It was just in time as one of the photos shows water flushing over the rocks, right where we were standing moments before. Ahh just a little rush of excitement for my traveling soul.

Dubrovnik...this saved my opinion of Croatia. I mean, I didn't get to see most of the country, but I wasn't particularly keen on Split, but when I arrived in Dubrovnik I felt much differently about my croatian experience.
Dubrovnik (Do-brav-nik) or (Duv-dork-ean as my aunt pronounced it on occasion) was absolutely beautiful. It's main focus is "the old town" which was actually, pretty cool. We stayed at a pleasant guesthouse on the top of the mountain, and walked down the evening we arrived to check out the little village. Mind you, it's totally tourist infested, but it didn't bother me this time. You could really gain an idea of what it could possibly have been like hundreds of years ago.
